Bonham Carter, Burton have second child


Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have welcomed their second child, a girl, in London, the actress' representative told a magazine.

The star and director of the upcoming musical film "Sweeney Todd" are "absolutely delighted," Karon Maskill told People for a story posted Sunday on the magazine's Web site.

"It's a lovely Christmas present for the family," Maskill said.

Bonham Carter, 41, had joked before the birth that the baby might grow tired of listening to musical rehearsals.

"Maybe the baby's going to come out with his hands on his ears: 'Shut up!' " she said.

The actress and Burton, 49, also have a 4-year-old boy, Billy.

"Sweeney Todd" hits theaters this week.
