Incontrare Amber Heard‘s only child.
Il Aquaman star is the mother of one baby, figlia Oonagh Paige, whom she welcomed on April 8, 2021. Tre mesi dopo, Heard shared the exciting news of her little one’s arrival when she uploaded a sweet post on Instagram in July.
Mentre Heard had previously been in a relationship insieme a Johnny Depp, having been married to him for 15 months until May 2016, she explained her decision to have a child on her “own terms” in her post announcing the news.
“Quattro anni fa, Ho deciso che volevo avere un figlio. Volevo farlo alle mie condizioni,” she penned. “Ora apprezzo quanto sia radicale per noi donne pensare in questo modo a una delle parti più fondamentali del nostro destino,” lei ha continuato, alludendo alla maternità surrogata come suo percorso verso la genitorialità.
“Spero che arriviamo a un punto in cui è normale non volere un anello per avere una culla. Una parte di me vuole sostenere che la mia vita privata non è affare di nessuno. I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this,” l'attrice ha continuato.
Since introducing her daughter to the world, the mother of one hasn’t shied away from sharing photos of her on social media. She also gave followers a look at her life as a single parent with a sweet photo posted in July 2021, in which Heard held Oonagh Paige on her lap while she worked behind her computer.
“I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss 🍼💝,” Heard captioned the affrettato.

“Per adesso, she wants to just focus on her baby girl,” ha detto un insider in quel momento. “The trial took away a lot of special mommy time. Amber is looking forward to a summer with her daughter and family.”
Subito dopo, Heard told Oggi'S Savannah Guthrie what she was looking forward to doing most with her daughter now that the trial had ended. “I get to be a mom, Come, full time, sai? Where I’m not having to juggle calls with lawyers,” lei disse.
Guthrie followed up, “One day you may want to tell your daughter about this or have to tell your daughter about everything that you’ve gone through. What would you want to say?”
“I think no matter what,” Heard responded, “it will mean something. I did the right thing. I did everything I could to stand up for myself and the truth.”
