Does Heath Ledger Have Another Child?

Matilda Ledger may have a sibling somewhere in the world.

According to Heath Ledger's estranged uncle, Haydn Ledger, the actor may have fathered a child when he was just 17. Well, thats what he's telling the Australian media, anyway.

Haydn says that Heath had a relationship with a 25-year-old woman, when the deceased actor was a teen, and the woman learned she was pregnant after they had broken up. As the story goes, the unnamed girl was living with another man at the time of the affair, but Heath's uncle says, "there is a very real possibility that Heath was the father."

Why does this matter now?

It's all about the Benjamins. If Heath did father this child, I'm sure someone is going to come looking for money. Though Heath's will was created before he and Michelle Williams had Matilda, his family has assured the world that Matilda will be taken care of -- which means, if he did have another child, she would entitled to some cash, too.

It's a sad world.
