It’s a girl for Jude Law


Jude Law was in New York City celebrating Peace Day the day before his daughter with Samantha Burke was born.
Less than two months after he acknowledged that a model he had dated was pregnant with his child, Jude Law is a father — again.

A friend of the family told 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,” said the source. “Besides the financial support, he’s not involved.” The source added: “Samantha is doing well” after the birth. 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 press 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.”
