The identity of the mother of Jude Lawâ€™s baby on the way has finally been revealed. The mystery woman pregnant with Jude Lawâ€™s fourth child is 24-year-old model/actress Samantha Burke. Law has three other children with ex-wife Sadie Frost. Law reportedly insisted on a DNA test before he would publicly confirm he is the father of Burkeâ€™s baby on the way.
According to a statement from Samantha Burkeâ€™s legal rep to TMZ.com, the actress has confirmed she is expecting Jude Lawâ€™s baby in the fall. Law allegedly had a short fling with Burke during the filming of Guy Ritchieâ€™s Sherlock Holmes last winter in New York. A report in the London Evening StandardÂ says Burke was â€œin shockâ€ when she found out she was pregnant. Although she was allegedly â€œterrifiedâ€ to tell Law about his impending fatherhood, Burkeâ€™s reps say that Law has â€œbeen nothing but responsive and supportive of Ms. Burke and the pregnancy.â€
Although Burke is referred to in most reports as a model/actress, sheâ€™s actually not really much of either. Her modeling/acting credits are virtually non-existent. And hell, she doesnâ€™t even have a Wikipedia page. Ms. Burkeâ€™s modeling portfolio at the rather racy ModelMayhem.com was removed just hours after her name hit the press, although you can still find a quote from her gushing about a newbie photographer on the site here. Getting knocked up by a multimillion dollar actor like Jude Law is probably the best thing thatâ€™s ever happened to her.
Not only is Samantha Burke now suddenly more famous than sheâ€™s ever been in her life, but sheâ€™ll no doubt be swimming in payoff dough shortly. Burke is reportedly on the hunt for a hefty amount of child support from Mr. Law.
