Jude Law to be father for fourth time

Identity of the mother has been kept private

LONDON -- Jude Law's spokeswoman says the actor is set to become a father for the fourth time. The identity of the mother has not been revealed.

Publicist Sara Keene says that "following a relationship last year, Jude Law has been advised by the birth mother that he is to be the father of a child due in the autumn."

She says Law is no longer in a relationship with the woman but "intends to be a fully supportive part of the child's life."

The Daily Mirror newspaper reported Thursday that Law met the woman while filming Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" movie in New York last year.

The 36-year-old actor has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost.

He is currently starring in "Hamlet" on the London stage and on Broadway in October.
