  • Jude Law's baby daughter makes magazine debut, before he's met her!

    Jude Law may be yet to meet his new baby daughter, but he’ll get his first peek at her this week, courtesy of Hello! magazine.

    Little five-week-old Sophia graces the front cover alongside her mother, Samantha Burke.

    In an accompanying interview, Burke reveals that the actor is yet to meet his daughter, and has not given any indication that’d he’d like to see her. 

    Speaking to the magazine she stated: ‘There are no plans for it to happen at the moment, but I know he’s busy.’

    And though Law might not yet be present in her life, Burke revealed Sophia has inherited his famous features: ‘She has his chin and nose, and she does a little pout that I notice that he’s done before.’

    Jude had a brief fling with Samantha while filming Sherlock Holmes in New York. He already has three children with ex-wife Sadie FrostRafferty, 13, Iris, nine, and Rudy, seven.

    Burke revealed that she still has hope that Law will play a role in their daughter’s life: ‘He’s a great father to his three kids. She’s his daughter and I believe he’ll come through. I mean once you see her face, how can you deny it?’

    The actor, who is currently performing Hamlet on Broadway, is yet to comment on the baby, but acknowledged that he was the father via a statement back in July.
