Hollywood actress Amber Heard surprised fans by announcing the birth of her daughter Oonagh Paige Heard through surrogacy on Thursday evening. She secretly welcomed her daughter in April this year and had decided to keep the news under wraps.
She kept ‘Paige’ as her daughter's middle name in memory of her late mother.
Taking to her Instagram and Twitter handles, she announced the welcoming of her first child. In the photo, the actress is holding Oonagh on her chest and laying on a bed. She also penned a heartfelt note on the post.
“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 normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib. A part of me wants to uphold 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.”
