Jude Law's fiancee Sienna Miller will have to get over her fear of reptiles before she marries the actor - his eight-year-old son RAFFERTY has a pet snake.

ROAD TO PERDITION star Law, 32, proposed to his 23-year-old Alfie co-star on Christmas Day (25DEC04) after a 14 month romance, but the pair are yet to set a wedding date.

A friend of the couple says Miller is terrified of the snake, which resides in Law's north London home.

The pal reveals, "The snake was to make up for the fact that Rafferty's pet fish has died. Sienna is a bit scared of it and doesn't particularly like staying there overnight since it moved in."

Law's ex-wife Sadie Frost is currently feeding the snake while the actor and Miller holiday in the Seychelles with his and Frost's children Rafferty, RUDY and IRIS.
