“She and Phil are a perfect match,” says a source close to Williams exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “She kissed a lot of frogs to get where she is now, but she doesn’t regret it one bit.”

Like the actress — who shared daughter Matilda, now 13, with Ledger — Elverum, 40, is widowed and has a young daughter. His first wife, artist Geneviève Castrée, died from stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2016 when their daughter, Agathe, was just 18 months old.
