Actress Amber Heard, 35, has been keeping a big secret for nearly three months!
On Thursday, Heard announced that she welcomed a baby girl, who she named Oonagh Paige Heard. Along with posting a pic of her bundle of joy, she tweeted, “I’m so excited to share this news with you. 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.”
It looks like Oonagh's middle name is inspired by Amber's mom Paige.
“I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib,” Amber shared in another tweet. “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.”
Along with revealing that her daughter was born on April 8, Amber emphasized, “She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”
Page Six reports Oonagh was born via surrogate. A source added, "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. She’s so grateful to the wonderful woman who helped bring Oonagh into her life."
"The most important thing for Amber is that she’s open about Oonagh’s birth,” the insider added. “There are so many women who feel they can’t talk about their fertility and are worried and embarrassed; Amber wants them to feel supported and realize that there are a multitude of ways to have a baby even if you have fertility issues.”
The news comes as a complete surprise because Heard never announced that she was expecting.
Amber was last linked to cinematographer Bianca Butti. They were last seen together at LAX in February after enjoying a Valentine’s Day getaway.
Amber is just one of many stars who have been able to keep their baby news a secret. Other big names to do it during the COVID-19 pandemic include Emmy Rossum, Constance Wu, Will Forte and Macaulay Culkin.
