Jude Law met his five-month-old daughter Sophia for the first time last week, thrashing out a deal with her mother Samantha Burke about how she will be raised
Jude Law has met his newest child.
The 'Sherlock Holmes' actor visited five-month-old Sophia - whose mother is American model Samantha Burke, who Jude briefly had a relationship with - with lawyer Maurice Kutner in Florida last week.
A source said: "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."
The 37-year-old star - who also has three children Rafferty, 13, Iris, nine, and Rudy, seven, with ex-wife Sadie Frost - and Samantha are believed to have made agreements on how Jude will support Sophia during a meeting on Saturday (27.02.10) including maintenance payments.
Samantha has been staying in the plush Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami, while Jude has stayed in a different residence.
She became pregnant following a night Jude shared with Samantha after they met in a nightclub in New York while he was filming 'Sherlock Holmes' in December 2008.
The actor is now dating ex-fiancee Sienna Miller, who he split from in November 2006 following allegations of an affair with his children's former nanny Daisy Wright.
