Jude Law is to become a dad of six – as his second wife is pregnant.

The 47-year-old actor – who has three children with first wife Sadie Frost and two children from previous relationships – married business psychologist Phillipa Coan, 32, in May 2019.

Law and Coan were pictured out shopping together in north London and Coan looked radiant with a very visible baby bump on display.

The Contagion star told The Daily Telegraph in January that he would love to have more children.

He said: "Of course! Absolutely. I'm fortunate to be with someone where I'm having more fun than I've ever had in my life.

"We have an incredibly stable and healthy, wonderful family existence. And that involves my kids who are young adults... and then the younger ones are just so much joy and so much fun.

"I love it, so absolutely, why not [have another]? I'm very lucky to be involved with someone I'm madly in love with. So the idea of having more children would be just wonderful."

Law is already father to Rafferty, 23, Iris, 19, and Rudy, 17 with Frost; Sophia, 10, with American model Samantha Burke; and Ada, 4 with singer-songwriter Catherine Harding.

The actor was first spotted with Coan at the Hay literary festival in 2015. They tied the knot at the Old Marylebone Town Hall in London – three months after he announced their engagement.

He was the butt of a joke in the 2008 Sex And The City film, when Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha Jones says: “There ought to be a law against hiring a nanny who looks like that,” to which Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw replies: “Yeah, the Jude Law.”

Law told The Telegraph in May 2019 that “little things like that used to freeze my blood. I would be left absolutely crippled. But nowadays it just bounces off.”
