Helena Bonham Carter gave birth to a baby girl late Saturday evening in London. This is the second child for Helena and her husband director Tim Burton. They chose not to learn the sex of the baby prior to delivery because regardless it was getting an Edward Scissorhands-themed nursery anyway. The two also received Golden Globe nominations for their work in Sweeney Todd which they learned about while at the doctor’s office, according to People:

“We were talking about inducing, and Tim got a call from his assistant,” Bonham Carter told PEOPLE before the birth. “I do look like a globe, so it’s kind of funny. I am very round.”

Helena’s unborn child had the privilege of hearing her mother learn how to sing for the film:

“Maybe the baby’s going to come out with his hands on his ears. ‘Shut up!’ ” she laughed.

Or, I dunno, maybe the baby’s going to come out, see her parents, and say, “Yeesh! Check out you two. I’m addicted to opium already, aren’t I? Damn it all…”

  2. Mark

    congrats. seems saw her before on a celebrity and millioniare dating site millionairefriends.com. It is said she has met her love there.

  3. grobpilot

    Any bets as to wether or not it will grow up to look like Lock, Shock or Barrel?

  4. Texas Tranny

    What the fuck is she wearing?
    Shit from the Goodwill?

  5. Just the one, then? She looked like she was about to whelp a litter of werewolf puppies.

    Opium! Priceless. Edgar Allen poe bedtime stories always lulled me into a peaceful slumber.

  7. Gerald_Tarrant

    If they want to punish the child they will make her watch James and the Giant Peach, or Ed Wood, over and over again.

  8. chauncey gardner

    She looks like all her children should be stillborn.

  9. ph7

    I hope they gave the baby a flea bath when it was born.

  10. hooza

    Aww, that’s so precious. I’m so happy for them. What could be more special than celebrating the miracle of birth with your loved one?

    Oh I know… me jerking off on Helena’s tits and using the bloody placenta as a lubricant. Hey-ooo!

  11. havoc

    I hear Goth babies are the lastest thing in London this year……

    Helena’s taken that whole, “My husband’s Tim Burton the guy behind Beetlejuice Edward Scissorhands Corpse Bride”. “I was in Corpse Bride, did ya’ see it?!” No, Helena. I had better things; I was, I had, I had somewhere I had to be..? Helena Bonham is real-life corpse bride. Check her out.

  13. whackjob

    worse varicose veins ever.

    will the losers at the lame-ass millionaire who gives a fuck dot die go away?

  14. D. Richards (Yeast Queen)

    Of course, as old and wrinkled as my haggard face is, occasionaly elder semen rots in the flaps and ages in my granny mustache. Let’s kiss! :o-8

  15. Auntie Kryst

    Well I guess congratulations are in order, but I still feel bad for these kids. When these little goths get to grade school they are going to get their asses kicked on a daily basis.

  16. RCA

    Where is the Daywalker when you need him?

  17. Dick Richards (Surgeon.)

    #15. As your editor, I’ve gotta tell ya’, that made absolutely no sense. I mean I could try and re-write that entry for you but what’s the use? It almost seemed as if you were trying something new? If I was you, and I’m not obviously, but if I was I would stick to the elementary style that Big-Dick has come to recognize you as.

    You remember the end of that shitty movie about Malcom-X entitled (appropriately), “Malcom X”, where people from all over the world say, “I am.. Malcom X”?

    Well “D. Richards” is becoming that guy. Dick’s becoming an icon. People can’t get enough of ol’ one-eye. I am.. Dick Richards…

  18. D. Richards (I am.)

    #18?! It’s spelled “Malcolm”.. Faggot.

  19. florita

    sorry but birthing a baby isn’t a “miracle”. it’s ordinary shit that all sorts of creatures on this planet can do. a miracle is keeping my lights on when i haven’t paid the bill in 18 months. praise jesus.

  20. 12:51

    i’m sure Tim and helena are happy that there is a goth baby line

  21. D. Richards (Scum.)

    #20. I must not be praying right because I’ve had my goddamn lights cut off twice in the last six months. The shittiest part of that whole mess is that I have the money, but I’m too lazy a piece-of trash to make the payments on time.

  22. Gabs

    I love them both! so I’m happy for them :D

  23. Aura

    Why do these people dress up like they HAVEN’T showered for like 18 DAYS….???!!!!!!!!

  24. kirsten dunst

    id probably knock the burtons too if i was a lowlife celebrity nutsucker like the dude that runs this website. lets denounce all humans that have talent and promote the ones that lack it completely. as long as they look hott right? fantastic.

  25. mkell

    Sheesh, she looks like Peter Lorre in that picture.

  26. Michael Vick must Die

    Good for them, these 2 rule! Fun parents.

  27. Michael Vick must Die

    @25 – right on.

  28. ToTellTheTruth

    Well judging from the way the mother and father look, that kid should be a cross between a rabid wolverine and a fat assed penguin.

  29. Pottie

    I think that she is an amazing actress! I cannot believe that people commenting here would say that you wish her babies would die or be stillborn or have a drug problem just because she likes to wear goth clothing! You people are fucking sick! You are taling about her child!! Disgusting!!! What is wrong with you jerks?

  30. bz

    Helena Bohnam Carter and Tim Burton are not married

  31. g.o.d.

    I think she was on set for “Sweeney Todd” for this picture…her hair is made up, and she has ‘movie’ makeup on (from what I can tell).

    I agree with whoever said something about deprecating talents and promoting talentless celebrities. Ms. Bonham Carter is a wonderful actress; I can’t wait to see her in her new film.

  32. She will be a good mom. There is a special forum about her at interracialconnect.com which is a niche interracial dating site. It is built by her fan. They are discussing the babe’s name

  33. lovetimburton

    yay!
    id rather have a “goth” baby then a freakin prep whos stuck up and grows up to be like the rest of the celebs. jeez.

    and congrats. i love them. tim burton is my hero!

  34. Are You Lost?

    #25

    I, like you, also value people for their talents or brains, not looks. Unfortunately, sweetie, this site is called Superficial.

  35. makemepuke

    Thats not a baby its a large bladder filled with warm rum spiced egg nog!!

  36. Guest

    she looks like johnny depp.

  37. Levi

    you’re right, #38! she DOES look like johnny depp! makes you wonder what mr. burton is thinking when they’re attempting procreation!

  38. Helena (Not HBC)

    #32: She wasn’t on set for Sweeney Todd when this was taken. She was leaving the restaurant Cipriani’s in London.

    And I love the way she dresses.

  39. honest

    she is just disturbing, I’m sure children see her and run, she just scares me

  40. Hannah (Helena-Wannabe)

    All of you people who are saying horrid things about Helena and Tim are stupid. In my opinion, you might as well just die. You’re talking about living people and their children! They’re the greatest!

    In my non-biased opinion, I think you should all die anyway. What you’re saying about them is horrible.

    Oh yeah, people who are being KIND to Helena, YAY YOU!! :)

  41. Hannah (Helena-Wannabe) again

    Right, carrying on seeing as i didnt have to earlier on…

    All of you people who are being horrible to Helena Tim and their children are acting like children! If you don’t like them, I don’t care, that’s your opinion. If you hate their guts (which I find impossible) then don’t say a fucking thing! It’s your own stupid opinion and you have NO idea how much it can upset people!! So if ever you want to say something HORRIBLE about any one of them, then say it out loud and don’t bother posting it anywhere!

  42. Helena Lover

    All of you who are dissin helena are twats and i personally think that if you had any brains in those big heads of yours you would make use of your pathetic bodies, jump off the itchen bridge and help pollut the earth!!!!
    you all make me sick, she is a person just like you and all of you ave no dress sense if you dont like what she is wearing! she is her own fucking person and if you have anything you want to say say it in a public place so you can get the shit kicked out of you! then at least us helena lovers will be happy :D

  45. Hannah (Helena-Wannabe) again

    Oh yeah, one last thing:
    You all make me sick. Like Helena Lover says, she’s a person just like you and me. She has her own fashion sense, personality, she has her own MIND. Loads of people just follow others, but Helena is her OWN PERSON whilst everyone else acts like sheep following the shepherd. I’ve never cared about what I’ve worn and since Helena’s become my role model, I act as my own person even more.

  46. Tim Burton Fan

    Congratulations to Tim and Helena on a healthy baby girl :)
    I just want to find out what her name is.

  47. You know that’s real nice everyone, pickin on someone who hasn’t done anything to deserve it in the least bit.

    I mean sure, she may dress DIFFERENT then other celebs but at LEAST she doesn’t go around making a spectical of herself, displaying her PERSONAL problems to the media world, getting ARRESTED for recless driving or FLASHING her vagina to the cameras like numerous other celebraties that you all deem to be NORMAL and idolize. Honestly, if I had children I much rather have them look up to people like Tim and Helena that have real talent and passion for what they do, rather then the other trashy talentless hacks that infest the hollywood world now days. She and Tim have real honest to god talent, and for those who recognise it for what it is I appluade you, but for those who view them nothing more as a gothic freak couple and can’t look past their outter appearence…you and your narrow minds can eat shit. :P

    I couldn’t be more glad for them, and I wish for them much happiness with their new growing family.

  48. callum

    i think you’re all being ridiculous.
    you’re all mocking someone, because they’re original, something that alot of people these days are too scared to even attempt to be.
    i personally think what she’s wearing is quite nice, and i admire her for her amazing talent and adorable personality.
    none of us have any idea what her or tim are like as parents so no-one has the right to judge them.
    grow up and leave her alone, she’s an amazing woman and a very talented actress who doesn’t deserve to be slagged off for how she looks or have all this crap said about her children.
