Amber Heard is officially a mom.
The “Aquaman” actress, 35, took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal she secretly welcomed a daughter this year, Oonagh Paige. For her announcement, Heard shared a stunning photograph of herself cradling her little one, writing, “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,” she explained. “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.”
Heard also detailed the struggle of welcoming a child while living in the public eye.
“A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business,” she said. “I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this.”
She concluded, “My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”
Following the happy news, Heard’s “Aquaman” co-star Jason Momoa shared his congratulations to the new mom.
“Congratulations ❤️,” Momoa wrote.
Heard’s “Magic Mike XXL” costar Andie MacDowell also sent her well wishes, commenting: “Congratulations It’s absolutely the best part of life.”
On Tuesday, Heard posted a video of her and baby Oonagh.
