American actress Amber Heard just shared some big news on her social media- she is and has been a mother since April.
Yesterday, Amber Heard revealed the arrival of her child, a baby girl. She has named her newborn daughter Oonah Paige, which is a unique name. Oonagh is a traditional Irish name, while the last name ‘Paige’ was in honor of Amber’s late mother, Paige Parsons, who passed away in 2020.
Amber shared the news on Instagram, writing a heartfelt and sweet caption where she called her new baby daughter “the beginning of the rest of my life”.
“I’m so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child. I wanted to do it on my own terms. 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.”
The actress can be seen peacefully lying in bed as she holds her newborn close to her, making for a sweet photo.
“Oonagh is absolutely gorgeous, and Amber is besotted. She always knew that she wanted to be a mom, and this is her greatest wish come true. She’s so grateful to the wonderful woman who helped bring Oonagh into her life.”
“The most important thing for Amber is that she’s open about Oonagh’s birth. There are so many women who feel they can’t talk about their fertility and are worried and embarrassed; Amber wants them to feel supported and realize that there are a multitude of ways to have a baby even if you have fertility issues.”
The news of Amber Heard having a baby comes months after her ex-husband Johnny Depp lost the libel case involving her in London.
Since the divorce with Johnny Depp, Amber Heard has found a new lover. Amber is currently dating Bianca Butti, a cinematographer whom she was rumored to have been seeing since early 2020.
