Now that he is playing the role of doting stepdad to girlfriend Michelle Williams‘ daughter by the late Heath Ledger, Jason Segel has poignantly reached out to the Ledger family to let them know they are always welcome to see the little girl, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star has made the brave move of reaching out to Heath’s father, Kim Ledger, to let him know that he is there for his granddaughter, six-year-old Matilda Rose, as well as Michelle, a source exclusively tells Radar.
The My Life With Marilyn actress and the Ledger family went head-to-head after the Dark Knight Rises star’s tragic death in 2008, arguing over inheritance and who should get his various awards.
Fortunately they have recently buried the hatchet and Jason is hoping they can all be one big, happy family.
“Jason got on the phone and introduced himself to Kim, and then invited the Ledgers to use his home whenever they wanted to fly in from Australia to visit Michelle and Maddie,” said the source close to the Ledger family.
“Kim was blown away by Jason’s generosity and the two hit it off right away. Now Kim’s given his blessing for Jason to marry Michelle and be a stepdad to Matilda.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, How I Met Your Mother funny man Segel already looked perfect for the role of daddy to Maddie when the pair were recently spotted out for breakfast together in New York City.
Michelle and Heath amicably ended their three-year relationship in September 2007, and the following January he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
Jason and Michelle have been dating since the beginning of the year.
