Samantha Burke: Excited to Be a (Single) Mom

by at . Comments

Now that Jude Law has announced that he is going to become a father for the fourth time, and the name of the mother-to-be, Samantha Burke, has been revealed, the 24-year-old model's lawyers say she will be having a girl named Sophia.

"Samantha Burke, her mom, and her family can affirm that Jude has been responsive and supportive throughout the relationship and pregnancy, and know that he will remain so as a father once Baby Sophia is born," says the statement.

"Jude and Samantha remain committed to the health and well-being of this child, and appreciate your honoring her privacy during this special time."

Lawyers for Burke, who met Jude Law when he was filming Sherlock Holmes in New York City last year, confirm she won't be granting any interviews:

"This remains a private matter between Jude Law and Samantha Burke."

Meanwhile, reports say Jude's baby mama is happy to raise the child without the actor around, but, then again, it’s not like he was ever there in the first place.

While Samantha’s lawyers claim she and Jude “had a relationship,” a source close to the 24-year-old says it was really more like, “just a couple of meetings.”

According to the mole, the divorced actor - who already has three children - picked her up while she was an aspiring actress working as a waitress in NYC.

Before Burke was identified as the mother of Law's child, he was falsely rumored to have knocked up Kayleen McAdams, sister of actress Rachel McAdams.


I also went to high school & graduated w/Sam. She is a talented young woman. Who has great family & friends to back her up 100%. Who is anyone to judge?? I mean come on.. Get a life.. Leave her alone...


I would have to disagree completely! I went to highschool w/ Samantha and she's always been the sweetest girl! She deserves her privacy and I think it takes alot of courage for her to come in front of cameras to ask for it. Congrats on your baby girl!


They had "just had a couple of meetings"? Seriously? Is this woman too stupid to know what birth control is? For that matter, what about Jude Law? No, just keep on churning out children that nobody really wants or plans on. There's a name for women who get pregnant on purpose just to collect child support from a wealthy guy. There's also a name for guys who let it happen: "Stupid".


This is really a sad story and I agree with Pak31. Also, why is she holding a press conference to plead for privacy? I think what she is really saying is "look at me" and I think it's equally sad that she is living with her parents.


It's hard to have much respect for this woman. She's trying to glamourize her situation yet all it is is a woman who slept with a guy, not a serious relationship, got pregnant and now has to raise a child as a single mother. There is nothing respectable about that. I really feel bad for kids that are brought into this world who don't get to know what it's like to be in a loving home with a mother and father. I guess I just believe that the traditional ways of raising a child are so much better for the child, mentally and emotionally. JMO.
