Michelle Williams has a new man in her life – she’s dating How I Met Your Mother star Jason Segel.
The couple – who’ve been longtime pals through Michelle’s BFF and Jason’s Freaks And Geek’s co-star Busy Phillips – only recently took their relationship in a romantic direction, but source tells Us Weekly that, “They are smitten and very serious.” Aww, this makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Michelle and Jason have been spotted out on a date at Frankie's Spuntino in Brooklyn, “He put his arm around her and made her laugh as they walked,” reveals a source. While Jason has also spent time with Michelle’s six-year-old daughter Matilda – he was seen watching over Matilda as she rode her scooter near her home.
Michelle of course split up with Heath Ledger – the father of her daughter – just five months before he tragically passed away in 2008.
We really hope Michelle finds lasting happiness with Jason – he’ll certainly keep her laughing. Currently The Muppets star is based in LA, while Michelle lives in Brooklyn – sources say, “They’re trying to make it work. She hasn’t been this happy in a long time.” Double awww!
