Jason Segel Holds Michelle Williams' Whole World In His Hand

July 12, 2012 By:

Michelle Williams must really, really like Jason Segel because the "How I Met Your Mother" actor is spending some quality time bonding with her daughter.

Segel and Matilda Rose, 6, were photographed strolling, hand in hand, in NYC on Wednesday and the pic is so totally, ridiculously cute!

The Academy Award winning actress and the prime-time funny man have been enjoying each other’s company since March.

Of the pairing, a source divulged to People magazine that he is "totally smitten" with the self-proclaimed mother first, actress second. And they add that Michelle "hasn't been this happy in forever."

Matilda is Williams only child, whom she had with the late/great Heath Ledger.

Williams recently expressed remorse in the “party of two” status of her family.

“I really wanted, and I really expected or imagined, that Matilda would have siblings that were close to her age,” she told People. “But I couldn’t make that happen. And now that she’s six that isn’t even a possibility anymore.”

That’s really sad, right?

But judging from this heart melting snap of Matilda and Jason, Michelle can take comfort in the fact that her daughter seems to have a male role model and we’re sure he makes an excellent playmate.

Do you guys think they talk about how he met her mother, then watch The Muppets together? Cute.

Well regardless of the speculated seriousness of this fairly young relationship, we wish Michelle and Matilda Rose well, and hope for much happiness in their future – they deserve it.

And obviously, we like Jason too!
