In the recent past, actor Amber Heard was in the news for her infamous and controversial court hearing about a domestic abuse case she filed against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. Now, in some much happier news, she took to her social media to reveal that she had embraced parenthood by turning a mother to her newborn baby girl. The actress shared a picture of her lying down and cradling her baby on her chest.

Sharing the picture, she shared that she named her daughter, Oonagh Paige Heard. Given she is a single parent to Oonagh, Amber penned a note about how she wanted to become a mother on her own terms and how it should be ‘normalised’ to have a baby but not want to be married.

She writes:

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. 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. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.

This is a sweet picture and some sweet news. Here’s wishing Amber and her daughter, Oonagh, all the love.
