“I can confirm that following a relationship last year, Jude Law has been advised by the birth mother that he is to be the father of a child due in the autumn of this year," the Sun quoted a spokeswoman for the actor as saying. “He is no longer in a relationship with her but he intends to be a fully supportive part of the child"s life. “This is an entirely private matter and no further statements will be made," she added.
The relationship is said to have taken place while he was working on the set of new movie Sherlock Holmes in New York, over Christmas. It has emerged that the mother-to-be is seven months pregnant.
