Jude Law reportedly wants pregnant model Samantha Burke, 24, to undergo a DNA test to confirm he is the father of the child.
The British actor has told friends that he wants to be sure he is the father before accepting responsibility.
“At the moment Jude doesn’t know for sure he is the father,” a tattle blabbed to News of The World over the weekend.
“He thinks he is – but he wants to be 100 percent certain. There has been a lot of speculation. But if it is his baby girl he’ll be there for her every step of the way.”
The Sherlock Holmes star was said to be “stunned” to find out that Samantha had not been taking any form of contraception.
“Jude assumed she was taking the Pill. He was stunned at being informed of the pregnancy. Jude feels he’s been made to look the bad guy. One of the reasons their brief relationship didn’t work out was because Samantha was a little too keen.”
“She claimed she was falling in love after just a couple of weeks. It was probably a bit too much too soon.”
According to the sources, Burke — a native of Pensacola, Florida — was innocent and inexperienced with men before she had a fling with the womanizing actor last December. Jude Law has been romantically-linked to actress Sienna Miller and Lindsay Lohan, as well as model Lily Cole.
“It’s not like she’s a maneater. In fact nothing could be further from the truth. She’s actually innocent and inexperienced when it comes to men. Growing up, she barely had any boyfriends. Jude is one of the first men she’s had in her life that we know of,” a source told The Sun on Monday.
“She didn’t get hit on as much as you’d think,” the spy adds. “She was a very sweet girl and didn’t flaunt her looks and guys tended to keep their distance.You didn’t see her on the arms of different guys all the time – in fact I don’t remember seeing her with any guys at all.”
Samantha is expecting a baby girl on October 6, whom she has decided to call Sophia.
