Looks like Jude Law has one more mouth to feed.
People magazine reports that 24-year-old model Samantha Burke gave birth to Law's daughter Tuesday night.
The aspiring actress met Law while he was filming "Sherlock Holmes" in New York City last year. The two dated briefly, but have long been broken up.
He's back in New York now starring in the Broadway production of "Hamlet." Since he was in town, we assume he was there to witness the birth. No?
"I doubt Jude was there," says a source quoted in People. "Besides the financial support, he's not involved."
Well, that's a bummer.
Mr. Law already has quite a brood going: The 36-year-old has three other children with his ex-wife Sadie Frost.
His rep released a statement in July after media reports acknowledged that Burke 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."
We'll see if he mans up to the task of being a four-time dad.
