Jude Law is ''torn'' between his new daughter, Sophia, and his other three children with wife Sadie Frost
Jude Law is "torn" between his new daughter and his other three children.
The 36-year-old actor is said to be keen to meet his five week old daughter, Sophia, with US model Samantha Burke – the result of a brief relationship last Christmas – but wants to be sure his three other children are comfortable with the situation first.
Jude had originally said he wanted nothing further to do with Samantha, but vowed to support her and the baby financially.
A source said: "He felt it would be easiest to just pay Samantha and hope that she moved on and left him alone.
"But now he is feeling very torn. He is on the brink of going to see Sophia but first of all, he wants to make sure his older kids feel totally secure and to make them feel they are involved in what is one of the biggest decisions of his life."
Jude has three children, Rafferty, 13, Iris, nine and Rudy, seven from his marriage to fashion designer Sadie Frost.
The children are presently staying in New York with Jude -who is appearing in a Broadway production of Shakespeare's Hamlet - and his parents.
Last week Sadie reportedly flew out for Iris' birthday, but ended up arguing with her former spouse.
The source added to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "Sadie was going to stay for a few weeks and make the family feel whole again.
"But Jude told her she couldn't stay with him. He feels she is on his case about how he's split the family because of his ridiculous, irresponsible behaviour in getting Samantha pregnant.
"In the end, she stayed just for the weekend and she and Jude had a massive bust-up."
Samantha, who lives with her mother in Florida, appeared in Hello! Magazine last week with baby Sophia, and gave an interview in which she revealed she is hoping to move to a new city, citing London – Jude's hometown – as a possibility.
