Amber and Johnny first met filming The Rum Diary together


Few could have predicted that marriage would be on the cards for Johnny and Amber in 2011 as the Kentucky-born actor was in a relationship with his long-time love Vanessa Paradis. His future wife, who had recently come out as bisexual, was also happily dating photographer Tasya van Ree.

Several months after Amber and Tasya went their separate ways, Johnny and Vanessa announced the end of their relationship in June 2012. While the couple had never married, they became parents to daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp and son Jack Christopher Depp III during their 14 years together.

Johnny and Amber first crossed paths of the set of The Rum Diary and began dating in late 2012.

At first the couple opted to keep their romance out of the spotlight and made few official appearances on the red carpet. While Johnny decided to go solo at the London premiere of his film Lone Ranger in July 2013, however, Amber had flown to Europe to support her boyfriend and was spotted celebrating with him at a post-premiere meal.

As 2014 got underway, rumours began to swirl that the couple were engaged when Amber was seen with a large diamond on her ring finger.

Actress Amber has formed a close relationship with Johnny's daughter Lily-Rose

In February 2014, fans of the couple were given an insight into just how close Amber had become to Johnny and his children when she was photographed enjoying a day out with 14-year-old Lily-Rose.

The pair were in high spirits as they headed on a girlie shopping trip, laughing and smiling together as they indulged in a late lunch and some retail therapy.

While Amber had debuted her engagement ring at the premiere of 3 Days To Kill, Johnny decided to show off the sparkler himself in his typical quirky fashion during an appearance in Beijing.

"The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway," he said when quizzed about whether it was true he and Amber were set to marry. "Not very subtle."
