Jude Law has been confirmed as the father of Samantha Burke’s baby daughter. The Mail on Sunday reports that DNA tests conducted by the model/actress have “conclusively established that Jude Law is Sophia’s father.”
“Check back in six months. Maybe she and Jude will be getting married,” her agent Eileen Koch added in a bizarre statement. Was she being ironic? Amusing? Or are the unlikely couple secretly dating over dirty nappies and broken nights?
The news that he is definitely the babydaddy is thought to cost Jude around $3m in maintenance payments for the next 18 years. And we’re still amazed that a 36-year-old man with three children already and no intention of settling down, can still get himself into this, er, “situation”. [Photos: WireImage, Splash News Online]
Jude Law has become a father again, after his ex-lover Samantha Burke gave birth to a baby girl. Baby Sophia was born Tuesday night, weighing 5lb, 12oz, and mom is said to be “overwhelmed with joy” and “doing wonderful,” according to her publicist (bet she didn’t have one of those a year ago).
The news that Jude was to become a dad for the fourth time came as a shock headline a couple of months back, after a Christmas fling with the model/actress. And the arrival of his new daughter comes during what feels like a mini baby-boom this week, what with Sarah Michelle Prinze (no, that still doesn’t sound right) and Ellen Pompeo both popping out new bubs. But we have to say, we’re most looking forward to seeing baby pics of this surprise new arrival – bet she’s as pretty as her parents!Ã‚Â [Photos: / Splash News Online]
Pity the poor baby mama whose life is thrown upside down because she slept with a cad. Samantha Burke, who is currently gestating Jude Law‘s fourth child, is not only getting raked over the coals for being a gold-digger, but a friend speaking on her behalf is now claiming that Jude doesn’t even remember Burke. Ouch.
The pal tells E! Online, “She met him at a club in New York. He was sick, so she kept going to his hotel over the course of a week to take care of him.” And by “take care” we’re guessing she means, “bang that guy from Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow.”
Despite that week of unprotected care-taking, Law, “didn’t even remember her. She hasn’t seen him since New York. They’ve only been in contact through their lawyers.” The situation is bad enough as it is, but you’ve gotta love the “friends” who speak out about this stuff. Best friends forever…or until the tabloids call. [Photos: GettyImages/Splash News Online]
The family of the young woman carrying Jude Law‘s surprise baby have spoken out, saying they are “mad” at the movie star for “dumping her cold” after their brief fling. Speaking to the UK’s Mail on Sunday newspaper, Samantha Burke‘s grandma Delores Burke also disclosed that the starlet’s father had to threatened action against Jude through a lawyer in order to get a response from him.
“My son Denis is hopping mad. He feels that Jude Law took advantage of his little girl. He rang him up but could never get through on the number Jude gave Samantha. He kept leaving messages. In the end, some lawyer called up and then Denis did get to talk to Jude and read him the riot act. I think that’s what made him step up to the plate and promise to look after this baby. Denis is as mad as hell and wants him to be a man about this,” she says.
The 80-year-old Pittsburgh resident adds that “[Jude] is a man who I believe took advantage of a young, innocent and silly girl… Samantha is upset. I think she hoped Jude would be more in the picture. But he’s just dumped her cold. She hasn’t heard from him at all.” Through his reps, Jude stated late last week that he would “be a fully supportive part of the child’s life.” Samantha and her family are thought to still be in legal negotiations with the British star over the support of her baby daughter, who is due on October 6.

TMZ is reporting that the mystery woman who was sperminated by Jude Law is little-known actress and model Samantha Burke. The attractive brunette’s rep has confirmed to the site that she is expecting the star’s child in a couple months, and has already registered a gift list at Babies R Us for a little girl named Sophia, due October 6th.
“Ms. Burke can confirm that she did in fact have a relationship with Mr. Law and that she has informed Mr. Law that she is expecting his child later this Fall. Since informing Mr. Law of the pregnancy, he has been nothing but responsive and supportive of Ms. Burke and the pregnancy,” the website reports.
Samantha’s acting credit (singular) so far extends to a role as ‘Beauty Salon Staff’ in upcoming film The Symmetry of Love but we have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot more from her in the coming months. Samantha Burke’s picture below come by way of ModelMayhem. [Lead Photo: ]
