Is it a girl? Catherine Harding, who is roughly eight-months pregnant with his fifth child, shared pictures of her weekend ‘belly party’, which was distinctly pink-themed

In the pictures, the aspiring singer/songwriter wears a daring pink maternity dress as she poses with pals.

There was also a tiered pink cake at the maternal bash, which was decorated with a pair of pink shoes and the message: ‘It’s a girl!’.

Another shot on Twitter was captioned with: ‘Love these girlies and the rest 🙂 thankyou for such a lovely weekend xx.’

He’s happy! Jude Law has spoken of his happiness with his life as he prepares to welcome his fifth child

Last week handsome Jude, 41, said he was looking forward to expanding his brood which already includes sons Rafferty, 18, and Rudy, 12, and daughter Iris, 13, with ex-wife Sadie Frost and Sophia, five, with model Samantha Burke.

Jude, who is also step-father to Sadie’s 24-year-old son Finlay, told the New York Post’s Page Six.  ‘Four children, another on the way.  I’m a happy man these days.’

Jude also called his children his ‘bedrock’ and spoke about how proud he is of them.

Last-minute preparations: Law’s pregnant ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding was spotted doing some last-minute shopping for their baby in London on Friday

He gushed: ‘My 18 year old’s in the business. My 24 year old, a gifted musician on piano and guitar, studies music in college. They’re my bedrock.’

And the handsome actor cannot believe how long his own career has lasted, adding that he is very happy professionally as well as personally.

He is particularly stunned by his career success as he never expected to be a movie star.

In 2011, Jude talked to the Guardian about the benefits of becoming a parent at a young age.

He said: ‘People often say that to me [that he did things early]. Especially about being a father, but it was just the way I did it. It never felt like an issue at the time

Excited: Jude is looking forward to another child

‘But I really feel that the years between 40 and 50 are going to be the 10 most productive years of my life. It’s just a great age to be an actor.

‘I want to get back into production, which I’ve done a bit of, and I’ve always been interested in directing and my kids are all at an age where I don’t have to be tied to London necessarily.’

‘The process for me is dismantling movie star stuff and just doing the actual work. I try not to become involved with myself. In this film, I got totally caught up in the story of leadership, skill and its gritty action.’

Meanwhile, Catherine was sporting quite a sizeable baby bump when spotted in London on Friday.

The 23-year-old upcoming singer/songwriter, also known as Cat Cavelli, was doing some last minute shopping to make sure she is ready for the tot’s imminent arrival.

Harding, who enjoyed a brief romance with Jude last year and spent six weeks with him on location in the Czech Republic, stopped up an upmarket baby shop in south west London where she purchased a number of items for her child.

These included a pushchair and numerous other essentials for the baby and Catherine enlisted the help of two of the shop assistants to get everything in to her car.

Despite her advanced pregnancy, Catherine still managed to look stylish.

She wore leggings and wrapover black top, along with a fashion forward black coat.

Embroidered brown boots, a floppy hat and large black bag completed the look.

When confirming the pregnancy last year, a spokesman for Jude said in the statement: ‘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.’

Although Jude and Cat have parted ways romantically, the Oscar nominee is committed to taking part in the child’s upbringing and is supporting Cat financially.
