Samantha Burke gave birth on Tuesday (September 22, 2009) to a baby girl named Sophia, who was fathered by actor Jude Law. Read more about the story here.
It has been confirmed that 24-year-old model, Samantha Burke gave birth to a gorgeous and healthy baby girl on Tuesday. According to reports, the newborn was just less than 6 lbs when she arrived into the world. Both the baby girl and the mother are doing fantastic!
You may recall hearing the buzz, around two months ago, that Jude Law had another child on the way. Now the talented actor is celebrating its birth along with his other 3 kids – Rafferty (12-years-old), Iris (8-years-old), and Rudy (6-years-old) – who are all from his previous marriage to Sadie Frost.
Law, 36, has been quite open about the fact that he is no longer involved with Burke, whom he met back in ’08 while filming “Sherlock Holmes,” but he will step up to the plate, telling reporters that he “intends to be a fully supportive part of the child’s life.”
However, one source close to the situation claims that Jude was probably not at the hospital while his daughter was being conceived, and that aside from financially “He’s not involved.” Lets hope that this isn’t the case.
To be fair though, Burke’s spokesperson released this statement back in August:
“Samantha, her mom and her family can confirm Jude has been responsive and supportive through the relationship and pregnancy and know that he will remain so as a father once baby Sophia is born.”
Reports also suggest that Burke is in the works of trying to strike a deal with a tabloid to sell exclusive pictures of her daughter. Encompassed in the deal would be an interview on the topic of her short-lived relationship with her baby’s daddy, along with photos, according to the NY Post. And the offers have been pouring in, with the dollar amount reaching up to $200,000.
