Michelle Williams "Devastated" By Heath Ledger's Death

I can't even imagine what Michelle Williams is going through right now. I always got the feeling that, even though the couple broke up late last year, she and Heath Ledger were still in love.

Michelle was reportedly working in Sweden when she got the awful news of Heath's death. Their two-year-old daughter, Matilda, was said to be with her. 

"She's devastated," says a source close to actress told People.com, adding, "I can't believe Matilda is going to grow up without a dad, without knowing her father. And that Michelle will have to deal with having a daughter who's lost her father. She's a survivor. She'll make it, but it's going to be hard. Her first concern is going to be Matilda."

Heath and Michelle met on the set of Brokeback Mountain, where they reportedly fell in love at first sight.

"I remember being in rehearsal, and the two of them had googly eyes with each other," costar Jake Gyllenhaal said of the couple. "There were sparks immediately," added costar Anne Hathaway. "It was adorable."

They split amicably, after three years, in September 2007.

My heart breaks for her.
