Jude Law’s lovechild made her big debut on the cover of London’s Hello! Magazine on Monday.
Sophia, five weeks old, was the result of a short-lived fling between the star and aspiring actress Samantha Burke, who he met while filming Sherlock Holmes in New York City last Christmas. Jude has made no plans to visit his youngest daughter and hasn’t even sent a present, according to the baby’s mother.
Despite the actor’s seeming reistence to get involved in Sophia’s life, Samantha remains optimistic about their future relationship.
“I am very hopeful it will work out for Sophia’s sake. He’s a great father to his three kids. She’s his daughter and I believe he’ll come through,” Samantha explains in an interview that reportedly earned her $300,000. “It would be great if we can have a friendship and remain cordial. Hopefully, he’ll be a big part of her life and she’ll be proud to have him as her father.”
Samantha also slammed “hurtful” reports branding her a golddigger: ‘“I have never dated a guy for money. All my ex-boyfriends were just normal guys.”
