Congratulations are in order for Michelle Williams...just not that Michelle Williams. 

Late Monday, news broke of the actress' engagement to Fosse/Verdon executive producer and director Thomas Kail, but the headlines didn't stop there. The four-time Oscar nominee is also pregnant with the couple's first child. 

With two milestones simultaneously underway for the star, some well wishes poured in...except to the wrong person. 

Michelle Williams, the songstress and famous Destiny's Child member, weighed in on her fellow star's personal news on Instagram with the perfect splash of humor. 

"A few comments are tricking in and of course I had to google to see what was goin on! Congrats are certainly in order but for #dawsonscreek #fosseverdon #brokebackmountain #greatestshowman #manchesterbythesear 'Michelle,'" she wrote on her Instagram Story, referencing the actress' many projects. "Ok bye."

After many years in the spotlight, the singer is no stranger to getting mixed up with the fellow celebrity Michelle Williams. 

Back in September, the performer took to social media after the 2019 Emmys to ask why she was getting hate online for the actress' acceptance speech on equal pay when they are very clearly different people. 

"I'm so sorry that my namesake upset you," she told one woman on Instagram, "but can't you see that I'm black?"
