Someone's about to put a new nanny on speed dial: Jude Law is a father once again.

The star's onetime fling, 24-year-old Samantha Burke, gave birth to a baby girl Tuesday evening, People reports. In July, the actor confirmed the child was on the way.

"I doubt he was there," the magazine's source says. "Besides the financial support, he's not involved."

The 36-year-old actor, currently starring in Hamlet on Broadway, already has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost.

Last month, a close friend of Burke's told E! News the pair met in a club in New York City and that "Jude didn't even remember her. She hasn't seen him since New York. They've only been in contact through their lawyers."
