Movie star Helena Bonham Carter has spoken of her happiness following the birth of her son BILLY two months ago.

The Fight Club actress says having a child with director lover Tim Burton has changed her whole life.

Helena, 37, says, "It's like an explosion of heart, love, everything - and it's extraordinary.

"It's changed everything. Everybody told me it would and, of course, I didn't really listen, and there's no real way of describing it."

And dad Tim particularly enjoyed Billy's birth, likening the happy moment to horror classic ALIEN.

He says, "It was like my own private Alien movie. I'll tell you, it was the weirdest thing I've ever seen. It was amazing."
