We knew you were wondering, so we rush to tell you that the heretofore-unidentified woman made pregnant by Jude Law — early news of which led to rampant speculation by (sniff) less reliable sources — turns out to be Florida model/actress Samantha Burke, or so her lawyer says, waving DNA evidence. Here she is doing her model/actress thing (here she is in underwear!); TMZ has pictures of her pregnant. The lawyer says Law has been “nothing but responsive and supportive of Ms. Burke and the pregnancy” since learning of his impending fatherhood, which he announced without naming the mother earlier this week; nonetheless the British Sun says Burke “plans to take him to the cleaners.” There is no statement yet from Law. Just Jared says this is her baby registry, though it looks a little downscale for such exalted parentage to us. Photo via Just Jared.
