Amber, who was married to Johnny Depp between 2015-2017 and is currently facing him in court in a defamation trial, kept her entire pregnancy a secret.

Amber announced the birth of her daughter in 2021

"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.

Amber wrote: "I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss"

"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."
