However, friends have told the Daily Mirror that the mother of the baby, singer Catherine Harding, stage name Cat Cavelli, is delighted about the pregnancy. It certainly seems the case since her best friend model Laura Coleman excitedly tweeted her congratulations.

It's understandable why Jude fell for Cat as she seems funny, free-spirited and a fellow creative mind. Talking about her music, she tweeted: “Everyone's so obsessed with making hits hits hits! I like to just make the music I love because when music is contrived it's so obvious!”
Congratulations to my best friend @CatCavelli on expecting her new baby. Can't wait xx http://t.co/eOcFJAvyRR

Her music career had recently taken off, with the singer being championed by Perez Hilton in June 2013. The US blogger recommended her song Cruel Melody in glowing terms.
He said: "Take Demi Lovato add some British coolness, some Madonna Frozen, some Laura Mvula and a whole lot of drum n bass awesomeness and you have Cruel Melody by Cat Cavelli!"
Jude takes his responsibilities as a father very seriously. He has three children with former wife Sadie Frost – Rafferty, 18, Iris, who turns 14 this month, and 12-year-old Rudy and a five-year-old daughter Sophia, from his relationship with Samantha Burke.
The latest baby was announced in a statement released by the actor's representative on Thursday.
"I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring", read the statement which was released by Jude's representative.
It continued: "Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child. They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made. I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families."
