Actress Amber Heard is a mother.

The “Aquaman” star, 35, announced on social media on Thursday that she welcomed a daughter in April.

The actress shared an image of herself lying peacefully in bed with her baby girl snuggled up on her chest.

“I’m so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child,” she began. “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.”

Heard said that part of her wishes to keep her private life just that – private – but that because she lives in the spotlight, she must “take control of this.”

“My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard,” she concluded. “She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”

According to Page Six, the star welcomed her baby via surrogate and named her little one after her late mother, Paige.

“Oonagh is absolutely gorgeous, and Amber is besotted. She always knew that she wanted to be a mom, and this is her greatest wish come true,” a source close to Heard told the outlet. “She’s so grateful to the wonderful woman who helped bring Oonagh into her life.”

The insider added that Heard wants to be “open” about the baby’s birth.

“There are so many women who feel they can’t talk about their fertility and are worried and embarrassed; Amber wants them to feel supported and realize that there are a multitude of ways to have a baby even if you have fertility issues,” the source said.

According to the outlet, the actress is currently dating cinematographer Bianca Butti and has been since January 2020, but made the decision to have a baby on her own.

Oonagh’s birth comes just over a year after Heard’s mother died in May 2020.

Heard has kept a low profile since her ex-husband, Johnny Depp lost a legal battle over libel in the U.K. in November 2020. 

The superstar actor, who Heard accused of abuse, sued a British newspaper after they labeled him a “wife-beater.”
