Matilda Ledger has developed as a celebrity child in front of the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The fact that her father passed away unexpectedly when she was just two years old did not assist her mother in preventing her from engaging with the media. Due to the issue surrounding her place in her father’s will, she was particularly drawn into all the rumors and suspicions surrounding his passing. 

However, shortly after Heath Ledger‘s passing, her mother pleaded with the press to give them space to mourn privately and tried her best to avoid being in the spotlight. Interestingly, she has frequently appeared in tabloids over the past few years because of how much she resembles her late father. 

Michelle Williams recalled how Matilda Ledger was the replica of her father in her statement made after Heath Ledger‘s passing. Heath Ledger‘s sister Kate Ledger said in the documentary about his life that everything she does, the way she rides a skateboard… reminds her of Heath Ledger.

Even ten years after her father passed away, the media never misses an occasion to rave about how much Heath Ledger looks like the 18-year-old Matilda Ledger.

Her father had given a grand piano to his lifelong friend and partner Ben Harper a month before she was born and requested him to write a lullaby that he would sing to her when she was born. The song Happy Ever After In Your Eyes, narrated from a devoted father’s viewpoint, effectively conveys his love for his young daughter.
