London: ‘King`s Speech’ star Helena Bonham Carter is finally considering marrying her partner Tim Burton because the couple`s children have voiced concerns over the status of their parents` relationship.
The 46-year-old actress and the director have been together for 11 years, and they are parents to two children, Billy, nine, and Nell, four, but they have never made their relationship official, reported Contactmusic.
"Yes (they do want us to get married). Nell wants a dress, but actually, Billy was the one who was worried. He said, `Are you part of our family?` And I said, `Yes`. Then he said to me, `But you were married. What about the wedding photo?`
"And, of course, he was referring to a photo of me in costume for Sweeney Todd, where Tim and I were just playing around. Billy thought that was our real wedding photo," she said.
Asked whether the couple will now be getting married for real, she added, "We might do."
