CHELSEA vice-captain Jorginho has welcomed a love child with movie star Jude Law’s ex.
Catherine Harding, a contestant on the most recent series of The Voice, gave birth to the footballer’s son Jax on August 27.
Jax is Jorginho’s third child and half-brother to Jude and Catherine’s five-year-old daughter Ada.
The Sun revealed Catherine, 30, was expecting a child with the Brazilian-Italian athlete in April.
The news came after Jorginho, 28, secretly split with wife Natalia Leteri, mother of his daughter Alicia and eldest son Vitor, last year.
The former couple married in 2017 and had been together for more than eight years.
Irish-born Catherine, who was mentored by Olly Murs on The Voice, announced the news in an Instagram picture showing Jax’s tiny feet and an item of clothing emblazoned with his name.
She said: “Welcome to the world baby boy. Months dreaming of you and now you’ve arrived and everything and more we could have wished for.
“How crazy life is and how wonderful. A new adventure with you to guide you as you find your way in this world, to fill our hearts with love and bring so much happiness.”
She finished the caption with “infinite love for you my son”, translated into Jorginho’s native language of Portugese.
Catherine fell pregnant with Ada, Jude’s fifth child, during a brief relationship in 2014.
