Heath Ledger dead at 28

Filed under: Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents

Sad and shocking news from New York this afternoon: actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment. The Associated Press says that police believe drugs may be involved and there are reports that a bottle of sleeping pills was found near his body.

Ledger and his Brokeback Mountain costar Michelle Williams became parents to daughter Matilda in 2005. During William's pregnancy, Ledger spoke of wanting to be a stay-at-home dad and expressed his desire to have at least six children with Williams. Even after they broke up last year, the couple seemed to be focused on doing the best for Matilda, going so far as to create identical bedrooms for their daughter in each of their homes.

I am so sad for this little girl who will never know her father. Whatever the cause of Ledger's untimely death, it is most certainly a tragedy.
