Actor Amber Heard says she welcomed baby girl in April

Actor Amber Heard says she welcomed baby girl in April

LONDON (Reuters) – "Aquaman" actor Amber Heard has revealed that she welcomed a daughter in April, sharing a picture of herself with the three-month-old on social media.

"I’m so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child," she 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."

Heard said that part of her wishes to keep her private life just that – private – but that because she lives in the spotlight, she must "take control of this."

"My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard," she concluded. "She’s the beginning of the rest of my life."

According to Page Six, the star welcomed her baby via surrogate and named her little one after her late mother, Paige.

"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," a source close to Heard told the outlet. "She’s so grateful to the wonderful woman who helped bring Oonagh into her life."
