LONDON (AP) _ Actress Helena Bonham Carter and film director Tim Burton are the parents of a baby boy.

Bonham Carter gave birth to the couple's first child, whom they have not yet named, in London Saturday, said Nicki Van Gelder, the actress' agent.

The two met when Burton directed Bonham Carter in 2001's ``Planet of the Apes.'' They live in adjoining houses in north London, and recently connected the homes with a door.

``I don't know if we'll marry,'' the magazine Radio Times quoted the 37-year-old actress as saying. ``I find it romantic bearing his illegitimate child and living next door.''

Bonham Carter's movies also include ``Howards Ends,'' ``Mighty Aphrodite,'' ``The Wings of a Dove'' and the TV movie ``Live From Baghdad.''

Burton, 45, has also directed ``Beetlejuice,'' ``Batman,'' ``Edward Scissorhands'' and ``Sleepy Hollow.''
