Helena Bonham Carter Ready For Motherhood

HELENA BONHAM CARTER's hoping her new love TIM BURTON is the one - because she's ready to settle down and have children. The British actress didn't move out of her parent's home until she was 30 years old and admits she's spent much of her life refusing to grow up.

But now she's hit the ripe old age of 35 she's decided it's time to get responsible and settle down - and is just praying director Burton proves good husband and father material. She says, "I had 35-itis panic. All my friends are having babies and I'm left behind. I feel more of an impulse to settle down. " (SVD/PE/KW)
