JUDE Law is set to become a father for the fifth time. 

The 41-year-old actor and his ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding are set to welcome their first child together into the world early next year and, despite their split, are determined to put everything into raising the baby.   

A representative for the star told PEOPLE.com: "I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding 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.  

"They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made.  

"I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families."  

The 'Holiday' star already has three children, sons Rafferty, 18, and Rudy, 12, and daughter Iris, 13, with his ex-wife Sadie Frost, as well as a five-year-old daughter, Sophia, with model Samantha Burke.  

The hunk, who has also previously dated Sienna Miller, admitted five years ago that becoming a father shifted his priorities in life and gave him a wake-up call.  

He said in 2009: "Being a daddy is what counts. I used to sleep until noon, but it's not so bad to have to get up at 7 and give them breakfast. My daughter made me realise that if there's anything that's going to make a man of you, it's having your will broken by a little girl."
