Pensacola model is mom of Jude Law's baby



Tbd-judelaw080309 It sounds like Jude Law's illegitimate child has a Florida angle, of course, since the mommy-to-be, 24-year-old model Samantha Burke, is originally from Pensacola. And while Law has pledged to be supportive, that doesn't mean he wasn't kind of a jerk.

RadarOnline says that Burke initially tried to call Jude to tell him the news, but the cell number he gave her was disconnected. So she had to contact him through his publicity office, providing a DNA test because he didn't believe her at first.

"She had to go through his PR person to inform him she was pregnant with his child, a baby girl she's already named Sophia," a source said.

It shouldn't come as any surprise, though, since he wasn't taking many precautions when he and Burke, who lives in New Jersey now, apparently hooked up while he was filming Sherlock Holmes in New York.

"Samantha was telling pals in Florida back in the beginning of the year that she and Jude were hooking up," the source told RadarOnline. "He insisted on not wearing any protection and soon she became pregnant."

And the rest is history, although now we have to apologize for implying earlier that the then-unnamed mom was going to blow child support on meth. We all know models do coke.
