Less than two months after he fessed up that a model he had dated was pregnant with his child, Jude Law is a father — again.
A friend of the family tells PEOPLE that Samantha Burke, the 24-year-old aspiring actress whom Law met while filming “Sherlock Holmes” in New York City last year, gave birth to a daughter Tuesday night.
“I doubt Jude was there,” says the source. “Besides the financial support, he’s not involved.”
Law, 36, who has three other children with ex-wife Sadie Frost, is currently appearing in a Broadway production of “Hamlet,” now in previews.
Law’s rep acknowledged the pregnancy in a statement released last July after reports surfaced in the media 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.”
