Jake Gyllenhaal Is Godfather Of Heath Ledger’s Baby

How sweet. Little Matilda has a gay cowboy love story to thank for bringing her a godfather.

“Brokeback Mountain” co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger have become so close, Ledger has asked Gyllenhaal to be godfather to his 4-month-old daughter Matilda.

Gyllenhaal, whose turn in the movie earned him a Best Supporting Actor BAFTA on Sunday, credits the movie with building a unique bond between them.

He says, “Heath and I are best friends now — making the film was very intense for us.

“I’m actually godfather to Heath’s daughter Matilda, which is an amazing honor.”

What will Heath get out of playing Rock Hudson? He better get Michelle knocked up again, if that flick ever happens.
