Adorable “My Week with Marilyn” star MICHELLE WILLIAMS started dating JASON SEGEL of “How I Met Your Mother” just five months ago, but an inexorable force keeps pushing her toward the altar – her 6-year-old daughter Matilda, who’s totally smitten with fun-loving, affable Segel and wants him to be the daddy she hasn’t had since real father HEATH LEDGER died.
Said a friend: “You should hear Matilda talk – she wants to be a flower girl, and she tells her mom she wants a little sister.
"She knows that won’t happen if Momma doesn’t marry Jason – so she’s pushing for it.”
Michelle’s clearly caving to her daughter’s pressure, and to the charms of Segel, who’s lifted the dark cloud that’s hovered over her since baby-daddy Ledger’s 2008 death by overdose.
Said the friend: “Heath was 24/7 intensity, but Jason lives to make Michelle laugh, and that’s pretty hard for a gal to resist.
"Plus, he’s shown he’d make a great daddy.
"Bet on a marriage by the end of the year.”
