“I can confirm that after months of constant requests from the media, I decided to share pictures of myself and [my daughter] Sophia with Hello! Magazine. Both Sophia and I were compensated for the photographs, and will donate a portion of the compensation to the Ronald McDonald House to assist with the completion of their new facility in Pensacola, FL. The majority of the compensation, paid to Sophia, will be placed in trust for her secondary education and well-being. I’m thrilled with the pictures of Sophia and pleased to announce that she is healthy, happy and deeply loved.”

The 25-year-old model admits in the latest issue of Hello, “Jude hasn’t met Sophia yet.. but I am sure he will be a wonderful father… She already [has] such a great personality. I think he’ll fall in love with her when he sees her.”
Samantha adds that Sophia‘s features “are more like Jude‘s. She has his chin and nose, and she does a little pout that I notice that he’s done before. I think her eyes are more like mine, though. You can’t always tell when they’re so young but they don’t have that big, glassy look that his do – mine are a little smaller and more like hers.”
Jude is currently in New York City performing his Broadway play, Hamlet.

“Sadly, Jude will not be able to see Sophia until he finishes work on Hamlet on Broadway in December,” a source told the Telegraph. “Jude is keen to see Sophia and will make sure that he visits her before he returns to Britain.”
Reportedly, her name is Sophia.
“I doubt Jude was there [but] Samantha is doing well,” a friend of the family tells People. “Besides the financial support, he’s not involved.”
Jude, 36, and Samantha, 24, met while he was filming Sherlock Holmes in New York City last year. He currently stars in the Broadway play, Hamlet. Jude has three other children with ex-wife Sadie Frost.
Burke took to her blog to write about her excitement about her new daughter. She wrote, “Only a month to go until I welcome Sophia into this world. I’m excited, of course, but a little anxious too. There is still so much to do to get ready. With all that I have left to do, I’m going to sign off from this blog for now. Be sure to check back with me after Sophia arrives. I can’t wait!”
