Jude Law will soon be five times daddy

After Rafferty, Iris, Rudy and Sophia, the "love doesn't need a vacation" star will soon have a fifth child from his third girlfriend.

Jude Law will be father for the fifth time next year. The 41-year-old actor and his ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding are expecting their first child together, which is due to be born in the spring of 2015. Although they are no longer together, Law and Harding want to do their best to raise the baby together as possible, they say.

A spokesman told the US magazine People: I can officially confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a baby in the spring. You are currently no longer in a relationship, but would like to raise your child together. As this is a very private matter, apart from this official confirmation, the two do not want to make any further comments. So I would like to ask you to respect the privacy of the parents-to-be and the family.''

The latest Jude Law news

Law, who is known for films such as 'Love does not need a vacation ' or 'Sherlock Holmes ', has three children with Rafferty (18), Iris (13) and Rudy (12) with his ex Mrs. Sadie Frost. He also has a five-year-old daughter named Sophia with model Samantha Burke.

In an interview a few years ago, Law explained how much his priorities in life had changed since he was a father: '' I used to sleep until noon, but it's not that bad to get up at 7 a.m. and having breakfast with your kids. Being a father is what matters. My daughter made it clear to me that if there is anything that makes you a real man, it is the moment when your will is broken by a little girl.''
