Jude Law has expanded his brood with yet another bundle of joy.

The actor and his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding have welcomed a baby girl into the world. "I can confirm the arrival of Jude Law and Catherine Harding's daughter," Law's rep tells E! News. "Both are delighted and continue to ask that their privacy and that of their child be respected."

No other details about their surely adorable little girl, including her name, have been revealed.

E! News learned that the Grand Budapest Hotel star was gearing up for fatherhood yet again in October, when we were told by the actor's rep that he and the singer (who also goes by the name Cat Cavelli) "are expecting a child together in the spring...Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child."

This is the first child for the pair, but the fifth child for Law, who has three children wife ex-wife Sadie Frost: son Rafferty, 18, daughter Iris, 13, and son Rudy, 12. He also has a daughter Sophia, 5, with Samantha Burke.

Although Law confessed to USA Today last year that his teenage kids are "in equal parts delighted and embarrassed" by dad's fame, the studly Hollywood star has also said that he tries his best to make it less embarrassing.

As he told Cinema.com, he's "immediately responsible for them as their father and responsibility stretches to how I put myself out there as a public figure, as an actor and I know nowadays that it has repercussions on them so I guide myself by them and indeed have to kind of structure my life, my living circumstances and how I portray myself for them, really."

They're also his greatest source of joy. "I'm happiest wherever my family is, so that can be anywhere," he told Condé Nast Traveller. "I'm happy at my home in London and at my family home in France with my parents. Anywhere my children are, really."

Congratulations to the family!
