Patricia Paige (née Parsons), an internet researcher (1956–2020), and David Clinton Heard (born 1950), who owned a small construction company, gave birth to Heard in Austin, Texas. Whitney is her younger sister. The family lived on the outskirts of Austin. In his spare time, Heard’s father trained horses, and she grew up riding horses, hunting, and fishing with him. She also competed in beauty pageants as a child, but as an adult, she says she can no longer “support the objectification.” Heard was raised Catholic but began identifying as an atheist when her best friend died in a car accident when she was sixteen. The following year, she no longer felt at ease in “conservative, God-fearin’ Texas”, so she dropped out of her Catholic high school to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. She eventually received a diploma after completing a home-study course.
Amber Heard, the Aquaman actress, is currently battling her ex-husband Johnny Depp in a Fairfax, Virginia court over a USD 50 million defamation case filed by the latter. In 2018, Heard wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which she described herself as a domestic abuse victim and survivor. Depp has claimed that since the publication of this article, he has lost his lucrative role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and the accusations have also cast doubt on his Hollywood career.
While the ex-couple fights it out in court in a series of allegations and counter-allegations, their personal lives have taken center stage. Heard revealed in July 2021 that she had welcomed a daughter into her family. She was given the name Oonagh Paige Heard. Heard also stated that the child was born on April 8. She did not, however, mention the father of her child or whether she was born through a surrogate or not.
The birth of the baby is announced on Instagram.
In an Instagram post, Heard stated, “I decided four years ago that I wanted to have a child. I wanted to go at my own pace. I now recognize how radical it is for us as women to consider one of the most fundamental aspects of our destinies in this manner. I hope we get to the point where it’s considered normal not to want a ring to have a crib. Apart from me wants to maintain that my private life is none of anyone’s (sic) business.”

Fans were taken aback by the announcement, which cast doubt on the baby’s father, who was unknown to the public at the time.
Since the Depp-Heard defamation trial is currently airing on television, many people are wondering who is the father of Heard’s child and whether Depp is involved in the child’s upbringing in any way. The baby girl is now one year old.
Heard takes pride in being a single parent.
Heard has chosen not to reveal any information about her baby’s father. She has shared many happy moments of Oonagh growing up, and it is clear from the images that she is a single parent fulfilling the duties of a mother with love and care.
Depp has accused Heard of having affairs with Elon Musk and James Franco while the couple was still married. According to reports, both Franco and Musk may testify in the current trial via video conferencing. It remains to be seen whether any of the accusations leveled against Heard are true or false.
The father’s identity is likely to remain unknown after the trial concludes.
Her personal life, like her career, has been a bit of a roller coaster. Amber came out as bisexual in 2010, while in a relationship with female photographer Tasya van Ree. “I don’t label myself in any way,” Amber said in a 2011 interview with Metro. “I’ve had successful relationships with both men and women. “I love who I love; it’s the person who counts.” Amber then began dating her Rum Diaries co-star Johnny Depp, marrying him in 2015 and divorcing a year later. Throughout their relationship, she accused him of being abusive. They are scheduled to appear in court on Monday (April 8) to defend themselves against defamation claims. Amber is said to have dated billionaire Elon Musk and filmmaker Bianca Butti after divorcing Johnny.
Amber, on the other hand, has found solace in becoming a mother. In July 2021, the actress announced on Instagram that she had given birth to a baby girl named Oonagh Paige Heard on April 8, 2021. “I decided four years ago that I wanted to have a child. “I wanted to do it on my own terms,” she explained in her letter. Amber went on to say that experiencing parenthood on her own terms taught her “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 get to the point where it’s normal to not want a ring to have a crib,” she added.
