Jude Law has confirmed that his wife, Phillipa Coan, has given birth to his sixth child.

The 47-year-old actor confirmed the news during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on his US chatshow on Monday. This is the couple's first child together. 

When asked what he did during quarantine, Law said: "I've become obsessed with gardening... Oh! And on top of that, I had a baby. So there you go.

"It's really wonderful. We feel pretty blessed that we were in a time that as a family that we could nest and enjoy each others company and take every day as it came."

Law and Coan got married in London last year, three months after they announced their engagement. 

Law was previously married to actress and designer Sadie Frost, but the pair divorced in 2003. They have three children – Rafferty, 23, Iris, 19, and Rudy, 17. 

The actor also has daughter, Sophia, 10, with model Samantha Burke, and another daughter called Ada, five, with singer-songwriter Catherine Harding. 

Law and Coan, 33, were first spotted together at the Hay literary festival in 2015. 

Coan's pregnancy came months after Law revealed that he would "absolutely" be open to having more children.

Their baby news was revealed in May. 

After the baby news came to light, a friend of the couple said: "He and Phillipa are blissfully happy together and delighted to add to their family. Everyone is really excited for the new arrival."
