Jude Law is a father again!
A friend of the family told People magazine that Samantha Burke, the 24-year-old aspiring actress whom Jude met while filming Sherlock Holmes in New York City last year, welcomed a daughter Tuesday night.
“I doubt Jude was there,” said the source. “Besides the financial support, he’s not involved.”
The source added: “Samantha is doing well” after the birth.
Jude, 36, and his ex-wife Sadie Frost have three children.
Jude’s rep acknowledged the pregnancy in a statement released in July after reports surfaced in the media that Samantha was expecting.
“Jude Law can confirm that, following a relationship last year, he has been advised that he is to be the father of a child due in the fall of this year,” the actor’s rep said. “Mr. Law is no longer in a relationship with the individual concerned but he intends to be a fully supportive part of the child’s life. This is an entirely private matter and no other statements will be made.”
