Jude Law is prepping for new roles on stage, screen... and in the nursery. Yep, the 36-year-old actor, who's divorced from the mother of his three children, will become a daddy again this fall - and he's no longer in a relationship with the mother-to-be. In a statement, Law's spokesperson confirmed the actor's paternity, saying "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.
Just to recap: Law and actress Sadie Frost divorced in 2003, after three kids and six years of marriage. The next year, People magazine named him its Sexiest Man Alive; he starred as an unfaithful lover in "Closer" and as a womanizer in "Alfie;" and he became engaged to his "Alfie" co-star, Sienna Miller. In 2005, he reteamed with Miller in "Casanova," but their engagement ended after Law admitted to an affair with his children's nanny, Daisy Wright. As they say, you need a scorecard.
Law will open in "Hamlet" on Broadway in October, and star opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in the movie "Sherlock Holmes" this December. Are you more interested in his performances on stage, on screen, or in real life?
