Amber Heard welcomes baby daughter
She was born in April.
Amber Heard was welcomed a baby daughter.
The actor revealed the news on her Instagram page this week, sharing that her daughter, Oonagh Paige, had been born in April.
"I’m so excited to share this news with you," she wrote. "Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child. I wanted to do it on my own terms."
She said: "I now appreciate how radical it is for us as women to think about one of the most fundamental parts of our destinies in this way. I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib.
"A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business. I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life."
According to Page Six, Heard named her daughter after her late mother, Paige, who passed away in 2020. She is currently in a relationship with cinematographer Bianca Butti, but decided to have a baby on her own back in 2017, "on her own terms."
Heard, who was recently involved in a very public libel case with ex Johnny Depp, is best known for her roles in Aquaman and Justice League.
She married actor Depp in 2015 before splitting two years later. The Fantastics Beasts actor had filed a suit against The Sun newspaper for dubbing him a "wife beater." The case was dismissed last year.
At the time, Heard's team said that she was "pleased but not surprised" by the court's dismissal. "The evidence presented in the UK case was overwhelming and undeniable," they said.
"The verdict stands and British journalists can write - without fear of legal threats - that Mr Depp is a wife beater."
