Now that Jude Law has finally, after five months, met his daughter with former fling Samantha Burke, The Frisky rounds up a few other—rumored!—famous love children:

  • The Clapton kids: Conor, the son whose death prompted Eric Clapton to write “Tears In Heaven,” was born to an Italian model while Clapton was married to Pattie Boyd. The rocker also fathered another love child, daughter Ruth, with another woman.

  • Frances Quinn Hunter: Better known as the product of John Edwards’ tryst with Rielle Hunter, she had to wait 22 months before being acknowledged as Edwards’ kid.
  • Omer Bhatti: Claims to be Michael Jackson’s love child from a one-night stand in 1984—and though there’s been no confirmation, Bhatti sat in the front row at Jackson’s memorial service.
