Amber has not disclosed who Oonagh’s father is or whether she used a sperm donor during her surrogacy journey.

The 36-year old who has been in the news lately due to an ongoing court case with her ex-husband Johnny Depp, shared the news via Instagram last year.

She posted a snap of her holding her daughter, captioning the picture: “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 normalised to not want a ring in order to have a crib. A part of me wants to upload 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. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”

Amber is not currently co-parenting with anyone, posting a snap with her daughter saying: “I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss.”

With Oonagh celebrating her first birthday earlier this month, Amber took to Instagram, saying: “My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year.”

Amber chose the name Oonagh Paige in honour of her mother who passed away in May 2020.

Taking to Instagram to share her devastation, she wrote: “I am heartbroken and devastated beyond belief at the loss of my mom, Paige Heard. She left us too early. Clasping onto the memory of her beautiful, gentle soul. She will be missed from the very depths of our hearts forever.”

Amber and Johnny Depp are currently undergoing a defamation case in court this month.
