Beside revealing the identity of the pregnant woman, TMZ also makes public the sex of her upcoming baby and a chosen name.
The identity of Jude Law's ex-girlfriend who is pregnant with his baby has been revealed. TMZ claimed in an exclusive report on its site dated July 30, the mystery woman's name is Samantha Burke. She is said coming from Florida working as an actress and model.
The news media, furthermore, obtained Samantha's online registry at Babies "R" Us, which listed her due date as October 6. The baby registry also suggested Samantha is expecting a girl whom she will name Sophia. Should the report is proven true, Jude's upcoming child will have the same birth date with son, Rafferty, whom he has with ex-wife Sadie Frost. The former pair also has two other children; son Rudy and daughter Iris
And while a representative for Jude declined to comment on the matter, Samantha's attorneys have issued an exclusive statement to TMZ, stating "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."
On Wednesday, July 29, Jude Law's representative issued a statement to Entertainment Weekly, confirming "Jude Law can confirm that, following a relationship last year, he has been advised that he is to be the father of a child due in the fall of this year. Mr. Law is no longer in a relationship with the individual concerned but he intends to be a fully supportive part of the child's life. This is an entirely private matter and no other statements will be made."
While no mention has been made about Jude and Samantha's romance, reports suggested the twosome had a fling at the beginning of 2009 when Law was shooting upcoming movie "Sherlock Holmes" in New York.
