Late actor had an affair with an older woman when he was 17, claims uncle

Heath Ledger may have fathered a love child, a second daughter who would now be 11 years old.

The late actor was just a 17-year-old schoolboy when he had an alleged affair with a woman of 25.

It is thought the unnamed woman – who was reportedly living with her partner at the time – gave birth to a baby girl after they split.

‘There is a very real possibility that Heath was the father,’ his uncle Hayden tells Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.

If the claims are proven, it could mean Heath’s multi-million dollar estate will have to be split.

Heath died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs on 22 January, at the age of 28.

His only child was believed to be 2-year-old daughter Matilda, from his relationship with ex-fiancée Michelle Williams, 28.
