Amber Heard announces the birth of her daughter in 2021

Amber Heard made the surprise announcement she welcomed a daughter via a surrogate last April.

The actress, 36, named her little girl Oonagh Paige in a sweet tribute to her mother Paige, who tragically passed away in May 2020 aged just 63.

Amber has documented her journey with motherhood on Instagram after speaking about how she wanted to have a child “in my own terms”.

She has never disclosed the identity of the child’s father or sperm donor.

The actress publicly came out in 2010, but has stated: “I don’t label myself one way or another — I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love; it’s the person that matters.”

The name Oonagh is Scottish and means pure and holy.

After welcoming Oonagh on April 8, 2021, Amber introduced her daughter to the world and wrote: “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.”

Amber gave Oonagh her mother’s name. The star had previously said she was completely bereft when she lost her mother who she described as a ‘beautiful, gentle soul’.

While the Aquaman actress largely keeps Oonagh out on the public eye, she has marked certain milestones on Instagram and shares pictures of the tot, without showing her face.

Last month, she marked Oonagh’s first birthday and described it as her “greatest year”.

Amber uploaded a photo of the pair sitting on the floor surrounded by pink balloons and wrote: “My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year.”

Her daughter’s birthday comes as Amber is facing her ex-husband Johnny Depp in court.

The actor is suing Amber for libel over a 2018 article she wrote in The Washington Post, which his lawyers say falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her.

Amber is set to take to stand this week to testify in the case.
