Jude Law has spoken about his excitement about becoming a father again. The actor's former girlfriend Catherine Harding is believed to be eight-months pregnant with his fifth child, and Jude says he is a "happy man" ahead of the new arrival.

"Looking back, I can't believe I'm still working and maintaining my position. But I'm a happy man these days. Four children, another on the way," Jude told Page Six.

Jude has three children with his ex-wife Sadie Frost; Rafferty, 18, Iris, 14, and Rudy, 12. The 42-year-old is also step-father to Sadie's 24-year-old son Finlay, and has a five-year-old daughter called Sophia with model Samantha Burke.

The proud father went on to describe his children as his "bedrock".

"My 18-year-old's in the business. My 24-year-old, a gifted musician on piano and guitar, studies music in college. They're my bedrock."

Jude's son Rafferty is now working as a model and the Black Sea actor sat front row as the 18-year-old made his catwalk debut for DKNY Men during London Collections: Men in June.

Jude announced that he was expecting a baby with Catherine Harding, also known by her stage name Cat Cavelli, via a statement in October.

"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.

"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."

Jude previously spoke about how fatherhood had changed him in 2009, telling Parade magazine: "Being a daddy is what counts. I used to sleep until noon, but it's not so bad to have to get up at 7 and give them breakfast.

"My daughter made me realise that if there's anything that's going to make a man of you, it's having your will broken by a little girl."
