Irish singer Catherine Harding (24) has opened up about her relationship with Jude Law, following the birth of their daughter in March.
The Tipperary native, who goes by her stage name Cat Cavelli, fell pregnant with the actor’s child following a short courtship last year and said their new daughter has inherited Jude’s celebrated good looks.
“She looks like Jude massively, she doesn’t look like me,” Cat told The Mirror.
“Jude is really funny and sweet. I remember last week he came over and he had to change her on the park bench. He cleaned her all up.”
Catherine, who was once a contestant on RTE’s You’re a Star, revealed that Jude wasn’t with her during the birth but arrived afterwards to celebrate their little girl’s arrival.
“The birth was really painful, I only wanted my mum there, it was a C-section, it was really horrible.

“But he came straight after and was really amazing.”
Oscar nominated Jude already has three children from his previous marriage to Sadie Frost - sons Rafferty, 18, and Rudy, 12, and 13-year-old daughter Iris.
And he is also dad to five-year-old daughter Sophia from his relationship with Samantha Burke.
Brunette Catherine also revealed that the media got it wrong when it came to the length of her relationship with The Grand Budapest Hotel star.
“It was said it was seven weeks but it was more like seven months,” she said.
“We are friends now but we’re not going to get back together.”
“We met at a bar in Soho and hit it off. I didn’t plan to have a baby. It just happened. It’s so exciting being a mum.”
In October, the actor confirmed Catherine’s pregnancy and requested the media’s co-operation in keeping his personal life private.
A statement read: "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."
