Earlier this week, a report in an Australian newspaper claimed that Heath Ledger may have fathered a love child when he was 17 with a 25-year-old woman.

 

But it seems that the rumor was nothing more than a rumor. The unnamed woman’s husband said it is in no way true and the couple are even willing to submit their daughter for a DNA test.

 

The man said, "The whole thing with Ledger being the father is not true. No way. No can be. We knew it would flare up and that is the point of my talking and the simple thing is we will do a DNA test. I’m the stepdad, but there’s nothing to hide and if I asked the mother I’m sure that she wouldn’t mind having a DNA test."

 

"I’m not answering anything," added the woman. "I think it’s very, very rude that I’m being posed all of this. I really do. I can’t talk about anything. There’s no background, there’s no grounds, there’s no nothing."

 

Heath has one daughter, 2-year-old Matilda Rose, with former flame, actress Michelle Williams who is currently set to star in the new Martin Scorsese flick, Shutter Island. Tomorrow would have been Heath’s 29th birthday.
