People first broke the news of Williams and Kail's engagement and reported pregnancy last night. The couple was photographed in London while shopping for baby clothes at a boutique in Kensington and a source confirmed the news. In photos obtained by the publication, Williams is seen wearing a traditional diamond ring on her left hand and she and Kail look very much in love.
The newly-engaged duo is said to have met on the set of the FX series Fosse/Verdon, in which Williams starred and Kail directed. Williams even went on to win an Emmy for her role in the show. But Williams isn't the only decorated artist in the relationship. In addition to directing the Broadway hit, Hamilton, Kail also won an Emmy for directing Grease: Live and was also awarded a Kennedy Center Honor in 2018.
Prior to her engagement to Kail, Williams was previously married to the late actor Heath Ledger—whom she shares 14-year-old daughter Matilda with—and Phil Elverum—whom she secretly wed in 2018 and divorced earlier this year. This will mark Kail's second marriage, as well.
Cheers to a wonderful new year for the couple, which will include a wedding and a birth!
