Surprise! Amber Heard is a mom.
The 35-year-old Aquaman star secretly welcomed her first child, Oonagh Paige Heard, back in April. Heard shared the news with fans on Thursday along with a gorgeous photo of her holding her baby girl.
“Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child,” Heard began. “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.”
The actress acknowledged she hopes to keep her private life private, but understands “the nature of my job compels me to take control” of sharing the happy news.
“My daughter was born on April 8, 2021,” she concluded. “Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”
