Jude Law will soon become father to his fifth child.
According to People magazine, the 41-year-old actor and his ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding are expecting a baby together. This will be their first, and likely only, child together.
“I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring. Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child,” the actor’s representative said in statement.
“They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made. I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families.”
The Black Sea actor, 41, is already dad to Rafferty, 18, Iris, 13, and Rudy, 12, with ex-wife Sadie Frost, and Sophia, five, with model Samantha Burke.

“Being a daddy is what counts,” Law told Parade magazine, via People in 2009. “I used to sleep until noon, but it’s not so bad to have to get up at 7 and give them breakfast. My daughter made me realize that if there’s anything that’s going to make a man of you, it’s having your will broken by a little girl.”
