The Alfie star became a father for the fourth time when American model Samantha Burke gave birth to little Sophia following a brief fling with the actor while he filmed Sherlock Holmes in New York.
Law, who has three kids with ex-wife Sadie Frost, is said to have flown to Miami, Florida to meet his lawyer last week (ends28Feb10) to finalise terms of visiting the five-month-old tot.
Burke was also in Miami with her mum and baby daughter – and Jude met Sophia on the trip, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, “Jude was very on edge about the meeting. The pregnancy wasn’t planned but he wants to do the right thing.
“It’s not like he can hide – as soon as Sophia can use the internet she can find out who her dad is.”
