Michelle Williams got a mixed spaniel puppy, which her daughter Matilda fell in love with immediately. Michelle said Matilda wanted to name the puppy something like Crystal, Gem or Diamond. Michelle thought these types of names were better for strippers and wasn’t a fan. She was still willing to let her pick the name, but lucky for her, she picked the name “Lucky”. Williams and Lucky are seen here in a photo shoot for Vanity Fair.
