Heath Ledger - Heath Ledger's daughter 'very much' like him

Heath Ledger's daughter is ''very much like her dad''.

The 'Dark Knight' actor - who died of an accidental overdose aged 28 in January 2008 - had daughter Matilda, now seven, with former girlfriend Michelle Williams and his parents, Sally and Kim, believe the little girl has a strong resemblance to her late father.

His mother Sally Ledger told Australia's New Idea magazine: ''Matilda is indeed very much like her dad -- she has long limbs and similar features. However, she also possesses the beauty of her mamma - lucky girl.''

Matilda's grandfather Kim added: ''Matilda has the same walk as Heath and is such a respectful little kid - she calls us 'Papa' and 'Grandma Sal'.''

Although the couple reside in their native Australia, and Matilda lives with Michelle in America, Heath's parents try to spend as much time with their granddaughter as possible.

Kim added: ''Our family has the most wonderful relationship with both Matilda and Michelle. We talk frequently and visit as often as we can.''

Heath met the 'My Week with Marilyn' star while filming the Oscar-nominated film 'Brokeback Mountain' in 2004. The pair split in September 2007, just four months before the actor's tragic passing.
