And the winner is … Samantha Burke! The media didn’t really see this coming yesterday. When it was announced that Jude Law had fathered a fourth child and the mother was seven-months pregnant, everyone backtracked to last December when Law was filming “Sherlock Holmes” opposite Rachel McAdams. Reportedly, McAdam’s sister, Kayleen is pregnant and the puzzle pieces seemed to fit together perfectly. Makeup artist Kayleen wasn’t working on the “Sherlock Holmes” set, but was supposedly introduced to Jude and the two allegedly hooked up. But alas she is no longer in the running to be his next baby mama.
So who is this woman who’s carrying the next Spawn of Jude Law?Samantha Burke is a 24-year-old model/actress whose portfolio you can check out here. She’s from Pensacola, Florida, where she has a baby shower registry at Babies ‘R’ Us. Her babe is due October 6, and she’s picked out the name Sophia. How “Golden Girls.” Little Sophia’s room will have “safari décor in the shades of dark brown, tans, creams and a splash of deep red.” Nice. [TMZ]
So how do we know Sophia is indeed Jude’s? TMZ received a statement from Burke’s lawyer that reads, “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.” Though nothing official has come from Law’s camp, no denials of Burke as the mother have leaked out either.
Hey, at least it’s not a boy. Then he’d have to worry about inheriting that receding hairline.
