Jude Law, 47, is expecting his sixth child with wife of one year, Phillipa Coan


Jude Law and Phillipa Coan had a quiet wedding almost one year ago exactly. Jude had obviously been married before (Sadie Frost) and had been engaged before (Sienna Miller) and it’s actually been sort of nice to see him so settled down and comfortable with a seemingly quiet woman who works outside of the film industry – Coan is reportedly some kind of psychologist or therapist. Jude is 47, Phillipa is 32. Jude is also already the father of five children – three by Sadie Frost, one by Samantha Burke and one by Catherine Harding. His thing with Burke was just a fling, but I think he actually had a relationship with Harding, however brief. My point is that Jude has had a lot of child support payments for many years. So I was surprised this past February when he talked about his openness to having another kid with Phillipa. Turns out, they were probably already expecting:

Jude Law, 47, is expecting his first child with his wife Phillipa Coan, 32, MailOnline can exclusively reveal. The actor, who is already a father of five, was joined by his wife during a trip to the shops on Sunday, where the behavioural psychologist was showing a clear bump. Radiant Phillipa had a bump peeking from beneath her tight black top as she took a trip to the shops with her husband – just over a year after they got married.

Phillipa was dressed in navy loungewear and sunglasses as bearded Sherlock Holmes star Law carried the bags at an upmarket grocery store in north London.

The pregnancy comes months after Jude, who already has five children with three previous partners, revealed that he would ‘absolutely’ be open to having more. The Talented Mr Ripley actor said: ‘I love it, so absolutely why not? I’m very lucky to be involved with someone I’m madly in love with…The idea of having more children would be just wonderful. I’m fortunate to be with someone where I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in my life.’

I’m including the bump pics below – she’s already pretty far along, well into her second trimester. I mean… congrats to them? I don’t have any kind of read on Phillipa, but I think she’s good for him. He’s seemed happier and just calmer since they got together, and he clearly loves having babies with all kinds of ladies.

Incidentally, I saw this Save the Children “Save the Stories” video a few weeks ago, when the Duchess of Sussex read Duck! Rabbit! to baby Archie. Why is Jude SO HOT while reading a kid’s book? Is it the beard? Is it his voice? I don’t know, but I think I’m pregnant now too.

    Well, of course. It is impossible to come within 3 miles of that man and not become pregnant

  2. Daisyfly says:

    I’m pregnant now just watching him read. Don’t know how I’m gonna explain this to my husband…or my IUD.

  3. Digital Unicorn says:

    Congrats to them both – am sure it will be a gorgeous baby. He just needs to look at a woman and you are with child.

  4. Yuzu says:

    I just want to get close enough to him to have a baby…

  5. Yup says:

    And who am I to do not become pregnant by looking at him, too.

  6. Redgrl says:

    I suspect he’s calmed down (if he in fact has – let’s wait & see…) because he’s getting older.

    • Noki says:

      There are some men, who suddenly ‘calm’ down when they reach a certain age. They just want someone dedicated as the get older who will take care of them after years of fooling around.

  7. Libellule says:

    Damn, at least i’m not the only one pregnant from his voice

  8. JJ McClay says:

    God. His voice his sexy. He needs to record an audiobook!

  9. emmy says:

    I love the man as an actor but man that sounds stressful. 6 kids by 4 women? He clearly wanted those kids or he would’ve done something about it years ago so congrats? It must be an organizational nightmare though.

  10. Joanna says:

    Ugh, I hate how this man gets a pass despite having multiple babies by multiple women. No way he is a full time dad. I don’t care how rich or “sexy” he is, he’s gross to me.

    • Dragon Wise says:

      Thank you. I am not charmed by this at all. I’m glad he seems to at least financially support his kids, but if he weren’t an attractive white dude with an accent, he’d catch the criticism he deserves.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Yes. 6 kids with 4 women is apparently fine for men, but if the genders were reversed, my God the shaming that would happen.

    • TyrantDestroyed says:

      I find him and Owen Wilson gross for this reason.

    • Michelle says:

      So what about Kate Hudson having three kids by three different men? Is that gross to you as well?

      • Ellie says:

        I remember telling my mum something about the Kardashians having kids with the same guys over and over even if they werent really properly together any longer as they wanted their kids to have the same dad.
        She found this to be far grosser.

        She said you don’t have a kid because of convenience, it is because you love each other and want to procreate together and develop an even closer bond.

        I’d prefer women or men have kids with people they’re actually in love with rather than sticking with the same partner for no reason other than their kids will all be full siblings (or something). But obviously it has nothing to do with me and it’s their life/body!

      • Joanna says:

        Yeah, that’s pretty tacky too

  11. February Pisces says:

    Congratulations, but please get the snip. I’m just surprised he didn’t impregnate Sienna Miller.

  12. DS9 says:

    He always seems to have enjoyed being a father. It must be nice to have the opportunity to do it again when you have more of your time and more of yourself to give to enjoying it.

    There’s a ten year gap between my oldest and youngest and I think ours made me a better mother to the youngest. I’m more settled, more confident, not necessarily because I’m older but because I went through the stages with the others.

  13. Ryan says:

    He seems to be a person that maybe cements relationships with babies? He sure isn’t the only one, white or otherwise, who does this. I just can’t stand people that do this no matter what, because there’s no way they can be involved with their children to the degree which the children need. Couple weekends a month and some FaceTimes does not a father make.

    Having said that, my husband has a job that requires a lot, a lot of him, travel, his brain even when he’s at home. I made the choice to have a child with him full well knowing that I would do the majority of the child rearing. And perhaps these women who have children with Jude made the same choice for themselves.

  14. SM says:

    If he was to read to my childeren every night like this, I wouldn’t stop having his babies too. That voice…

  15. Wilmarama says:

    Of course he loves having tons of babies, he doesn’t have to raise all of them! He probably has no clue to how much work it would actually be to have 5-6 children if they all lived with him.

  16. NotHeidisGirl says:

    I‘m actually surprised it took this long!

  17. Cupcake says:

    Wow. I think he’s hotter now than ever. OMG. I know that wasn’t the option of this article but WOW.

  18. Mia4s says:

    “ he clearly loves having babies with all kinds of ladies.“

    Omg, perfect statement! Just the right amount of sweet and…shady! *ahem* 😉

    He fascinates me, more than attracts me. My GOD they tried hard to make him a huge movie star. It never quite worked. He certainly was extremely successful, but just some little piece did not click in. Very interesting case study.

    • xo says:

      wasn’t quite “masculine” enough (for mainstream American success) would be my guess

      he was too interesting for it, too

  19. Melissa says:

    “I think I’m pregnant now too” i literally did a spit take with my coffee at that line!! LmfAo!!

  20. Ana says:

    Only sixth? I tought he was already in the double digits regarding children, huh

  21. L4frimaire says:

    This guy and Future should have a cookout along with Elon Musk. I once heard someone say that women always know how many children they have, but men, not so much ( cough, Boris Johnson). These guys are creating their own little nations.

  22. KA says:

    I wouldn’t leave my husband or have more kids, but I do sometimes wonder about the science experiment of procreation. What would my kids look like with different dads? Would their personalities be different? Etc. Must be interesting to see the comparisons.

  23. Lowrider says:

    Jude is still a decent looking man but he really should have fixed that hairline.

  24. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Congrats to them both! I dont see this as big deal actually. By all accounts Jude is a good father. And two of his kids are legal adults now so no child support payments. If he and his wife can afford it and it’s what they both want, more power to them.

  25. Minorbird says:

    He sounds soooo sexy to me. geez.

  26. The Recluse says:

    His parents sure blessed/cursed him when they gave him the middle name of Lothario. He’s been living up to it since he grew up. Could have been worse…they could have named him Casanova.

  27. Eda says:

    He needs a vasectomy. STAT.
