wow at 2 1/2 years old Matilda is half the size of her mommy. She’s going to be a tall little girl. She looks so pretty here.

Natasha on

Matilda is so pretty. She looks just like Heath. Just a gorgeous little girl

Everytime I see her I’m shocked with how tall she is! I know how mom isnt all that tall, but Matilda looks at least like she is a year older than her real age, just by length! WHat do you guys think? The genes from her dad, maybe? Or is it just me?

And yes, cute girl indeed🙂.

Wow, she is getting so big. I can’t believe how tall she is.

I thought the same thing about her height. My kids are really tall as well. Strangers will comment on things like, “why is that 3 year old still in diapers” or “why is your 6 year old not in school?” Well… it’s because my “4 year old” is actually only 2 and my “6 year old” is actually 4.

What an adorable, tall, girl!! She looks so happy there!

Little Matilda always looks so happy-go-lucky. Michelle is doing a great job keeping her little girl in good spirits. Michelle’s been looking great lately, too. I hope they are both well.

Very cute picture of Matilda !! And one of the better ones of Michelle, very cute.

She’s so adorable…and she really does look closer to four, rather than 3.

She used to be a carbon copy of her Daddy, but I see her Mom and Grandma’s smile coming through more now….although she still does look alot like her Dad.

Everytime I see a picture of Matilda I’m suprise about how tall is she, my son is 2 and a half too and he is tall, but Matilda also has a very mature face and movements.

Cute girl!

Jaisa: i totally agree!

i echo everybody else by commenting on her height-she’s gonna be tall! but its not just length, she has totally lost the chubby toddler look and actually looks like a mini adult…but that might just be me, lol!

so sad for her, at least she will have many photo’s+footage,films etc to help her remember her daddy, she will also know the effect her dad had on the film and acting world, and the respect he had in such circled. that i hope will go some way towards helping her deal with her fathers death in a positive way…

Such a beautiful little girl with a smile to match. Michelle has done a wonderful job parenting Matilda. It’s great to see that she has so much support surrounding her. Heath would be extremely proud of both his daughter and Michelle.

Matilda is a ray of sunshine in every pic I see. Kudos to Michelle for raising a very happy girl in, what must be, such a difficult time.

Her face is just precious and I love her haircut and her little Crocs. So cute.🙂

skipsie on

Doesn’t she just have the cutest little smile?
I always love what this child is wearing, and way to accessorise girl! Love how her shoes and bag match!

Sarah on

Matilda is absolutely adorable! She looks just like her dad. Michelle is doing a wonderful job raising her and she has been looking great lately.

My heart goes out to both of them.

Kait on

She looks like she’s grown SO MUCH here since the last pictures!! She is so gorgeous and looks just like her daddy.

You know everyone always talks about how tall Suri is or what long legs Zahara has but this is girl has them both beat. She is already at her mothers hip (even though Micelle is only 5’4″) at 2 1/2
