More good news for Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.

Just two days after both received Golden Globe nods for Sweeney Todd—she for Best Actress, he for Best Director—the couple welcomed their second child, a baby girl, People reports.

"They are absolutely delighted they have a daughter," Bonham Carter's rep, Karon Maskill, said. "It's a lovely Christmas present for the family."

The baby was born late Saturday in London. So far, there's no word on a name.

Bonham Carter, 41, and Burton, 49, are also the parents of a four-year-old son, Billy. They have been an item since meeting on the set of 2001's Planet of the Apes. 

The couple learned of the latest pregnancy while in production on Sweeney Todd, which apparently caused some continuity problems, as the film was not shot in sequence.

"I start off with huge breasts, and then I walk upstairs and suddenly I've got tangerines again," Bonham Carter recently revealed to Playboy. "It's melons to tangerines."

Luckily, the size of her cleavage apparently failed to distract the Hollywood Foreign Press Association from her skilled turn as a murderous baker in the gory musical.

Upon learning of her Globe nomination Thursday, the actress joked that Burton wanted to paint her belly gold in celebration.

"I am fairly globular at the moment as I am about to have a baby," she said at the time.

In addition to Bonham Carter and Burton's Sweeney Todd nominations, Johnny Depp earned a nod for Best Actor and the film itself was nominated for Best Picture in the Musical or Comedy category.
