Amber Heard Is a Mom, Welcomes Baby Girl “On Her Own Terms”
Amber Heard isn’t The Stepfather…and she’s definitely got this parenting sitch figured out all on her own.
The new mom, 35, shared another new pic of 3-month-old baby Oonagh on her Instagram on Friday, July 16. The Aquaman actress captioned her photo, “I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss.”
In the image, Amber held her first-born while hard at work on a computer, wearing glasses and her hair in a bun. This wasn’t the first time Amber gave her followers a peek into her new daily life with her little one. The 35-year-old posted a hilarious video on July 6 holding Oonagh while drinking celery juice. The mom sarcastically commented, “It’s celery…” and joked in the caption about her distaste for the drink, “You can take the gal out of LA, but you can’t take the LA out of the gal #notajuicer.”
Just days before, Amber surprised the world by announcing she had a daughter. Amber had kept the details ahead of Oonagh’s birth a secret, with the big reveal coming on July 1.
Amber’s announcement photo showed her cradling her newborn baby on a bed.
She captioned the announcement, “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.”
The star continued, “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,” she commented about societal expectations to be married in order to have children.
“A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business,” Amber admitted. “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.”
Her daughter’s middle name rings as a tribute to Amber’s own mother, Paige Heard, who she publicly grieved in 2020 following her mom’s death.
