Michelle Williams and her husband, Phil Elverum, have separated, The Hollywood Reporter can confirm.

A source tells THR that the split is amicable and happened toward the beginning of this year. Their decision to call it quits comes less than a year after the actress, 38, and the indie musician, 40, quietly wed in the summer of 2018.

Williams first revealed she and Elverum tied the knot in a cover story interview for Vanity Fair's September 2018 issue. Though she is typically guarded about her private life, the Fosse/Verdon star opened up about her relationship with Elverum in a rare moment. While speaking with the magazine, Williams talked candidly about finding love 10 years after the death of her ex, Heath Ledger, with whom she welcomed daughter Matilda in 2005

"I never gave up on love," she said at the time, adding that she met Elverum through a mutual friend before marrying him in an intimate ceremony in the Adirondacks. "I always say to Matilda, 'Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.'"

Continued Williams: "Obviously, I've never once in my life talked about a relationship, but Phil isn't anyone else. And that's worth something. Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free."
