Amber Heard got the hang of single parenting in spades.
The caption of the cute photo read of little baby Oonagh read: “I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss ????????”
“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,” she continued.
“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.”
Heard concluded with: “My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”
The baby girl’s middle name honors Heard’s late mom Paige Heard who died last year on April 1, 2021.
“It’s hard to imagine that it has been a year. The woman who made me – and made me who I am – left us far too early but is remembered every single day,” she wrote at the time to Instagram.
“She lives in my soul and is carried in my heart. She taught me everything i know about kindness and love and gave me my heart. I miss her every day but I am lucky to have had her love for as long as I did. And for every day that I can’t tell her that in person, I look up and thank her beautiful memory which shines on me and my sister Whit and binds our family together with her spirit.”
Heard, has been dating cinematographer Bianca Butti since early 2020.
In the midst of it all, her ongoing legal battles with ex-husband Johnny Depp continue over allegations of domestic violence. A trial in Depp’s defamation case against Heard, filed in the Virginia courts, was delayed to April 2022 due to the COVID pandemic.
And in November, a related libel case Depp brought against the Sun newspaper in the U.K. was dismissed by a judge. Heard revealed how the “very jealous” actor would consider almost all of her male co-stars as a “sexual threat” in a statement filed as part of his explosive libel case in London.
