Jude Law has shared that he and wife Phillipa Coan welcomed a baby while under quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.

It is the sixth child for the actor, who is already parent to sons Rafferty, 23, and Rudy, 18, as well as 19-year-old Iris from his marriage to Sadie Frost. He also fathered 10-year-old daughter Sophia with model Samantha Burke and Ada, 5, with singer Catherine Harding.

The 47-year-old revealed his happy news while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as he spoke on what he had been up to over the past few months.

"It's really wonderful," he went on. "Again, we feel pretty blessed that we were in a time where we could, as a family, you know, we can just nest and enjoy each other's company every day as it came. It was an unusual but a kind of enforced love-in."

Law didn’t state whether they had welcomed a boy or a girl, or give the tot’s name.

He and Coan wed in a lowkey ceremony last year at Old Marylebone Town Hall. His first marriage to Frost lasted for six years between 1997 and 2003.
