New mom Hilarie Burton (formerly of One Tree Hill) is breaking her silence -- just a tad -- about the baby boy she and boyfriend Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Watchmen) secretly welcomed earlier this year.

As first revealed in Us Weekly in May, Burton, 28, began dating Morgan, 44, in 2009, and "their relationship moved pretty quickly," an insider told Us. The actress was not photographed in public between May 6, 2009 and April 20, 2010, when she and Morgan went public with their romance at an L.A. film premiere.

Now back at work to film episodes of USA's series White Collar in NYC, Burton told the Associated Press recently that she and Morgan are "really happy, and we're a very good team. And we got very lucky that our family is what it is."

But Burton still would not tell the AP the name of their son or his birth date.

"I want to protect them like a mama wolf should," she explained of her new family.

It's the first child for Burton, but not Morgan: he learned in March 2009 that he had a 5-year-old son with actress Sherrie Ross.
