Someone’s got diaper duty on the horizon again! Jude Law is going to be a dad for the fifth time sometime next spring. Law’s rep confirmed the news in a statement released to People, “I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring. Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child.” Law is already dad to three children — Rafferty (18), Iris (13) and Rudy (12) — with his ex-wife Sadie Frost, and one — Sophia (5) — with Samantha Burke. His latest film project, Black Sea, is set to hit theaters in January 2015.
Jude Law became a daddy for the fourth time on Tuesday, September 22nd, when Sophia made her arrival.
Sophia is a first baby for new mom Samantha Burke, who met Jude while he was in New York filming Sherlock Holmes. The two are no longer together. Burke returned her hometown of Pensacola, FL, when she learned she was pregnant. Law is currently in New York starring in the Broadway production of Hamlet.
The baby’s mother, 24-year-old Florida model and actress Samantha Burke, announced during a recent press statement that the baby’s intended name is Sophia. In fact, some Internet sources list Sophia’s prospective due date as Oct. 6 — the same birthday as Jude’s eldest! That ought to make Sophia’s birthday easy to remember!
Jude Law is certainly prolific. The actor recently confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that he is going to be a father again! He was quite tight-lipped about the impending bundle of joy, only saying that he’s “no longer in a relationship” with the mother and ” intends to be a fully supportive part of the child’s life.” Law has three children–Rafferty, 12; Iris, 8 and Rudy, 6, with ex-wife Sadie Frost. No word on when baby number four is due.
