Who Is Oonagh Paige? Here Is Everything We Know about Amber Heard’s Baby Daughter

Amber Heard’s daughter, Oonagh Paige, entered this world through a surrogate mother. The actress welcomed her only child amidst a legal battle against Johnny Depp.

A lot has happened in Amber Heard’s life in the past few years, both ups and downs. Although she appeared in several films, it wasn’t until the last decade that the actress had starring roles.

In 2010, she took a lead character in the independent film “And Soon the Darkness,” followed by a starring role in 2013’s “Paranoia.” She also famously starred in the 2018 DC film “Aquaman.”

Aside from her career, Heard also underwent relationship challenges when she married and divorced Johnny Depp. Their relationship became the subject of news headlines in 2022 after the “Pirates of the Caribbean” filed a defamation suit against Heard.

According to a report from VOX, Depp sued Heard because of an op-ed she published in the Washington Post in 2018. She referred to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”

In March 2019, Depp filed a defamation lawsuit against her requesting $50 million in reparation; then, in January 2021, Heard countersued for double the sum.

Amidst the dispute, Heard found happiness in the arms of her daughter, Oonagh Paige, born on April 8, 2021. Heard announced the news on Instagram and wrote:

“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.”

The actress revealed that she had secretly become a mother to a daughter in July 2021 and insisted that she was both mom and dad to the child, even though it did not stop speculations about who the father was.

Heard reportedly welcomed the child via a surrogate mother on April 8, 2021, and named her Oonagh Paige Heard. Why surrogacy? Doctors said she wouldn’t be able to carry a child.

The proud mom confirmed the news of her baby’s arrival via Instagram when she posted a shot of herself with the newborn. Since her daughter arrived, Heard has turned her social media accounts into stan pages for her daughter.

They often share pictures that immortalize their time together and add captions that push the narrative that says women don’t need to be in a marriage to have a child.

In one Instagram post, she shared a picture of herself and Oonagh, whom she named after her late mother, sitting behind a laptop with their eyes on the screen. Her caption read:

“I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss.”

Oonagh will undoubtedly grow up feeling loved. According to Heard, she may one day tell her daughter about the defamation trial. “I think no matter what, it will mean something,” she said. “I did the right thing. I did everything I could to stand up for myself and the truth.”


There have been theories about the identity of Oonagh’s father. Some believe the sperm was from Johnny Depp, James Franco, or even Tesla founder Elon Musk. However, Oonagh’s father remains a secret as Heard claimed she did the surrogate on “her own terms.” Possibly, her dad is a sperm donor not known to Heard.

After her acrimonious split from Depp, Heard reportedly started dating the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, after she set eyes on him at the 2016 edition of the Met Gala. However, it has been revealed that her heart was not involved in the relationship.

The information was shared due to the findings triggered by the defamation suit that claims Heard ruined Depp’s reputation by implying that he had abused her in their relationship.

In her defense, her lawyers had Dr. Dawn Hughes, a forensic psychologist charged with evaluating Heard for the lawsuit, testify.

According to notes from their sessions, Heard told Hughes that she and Musk got involved for the first time after she met him at the Met Ball, which is in direct contrast to Depp’s claim that the two were already sleeping together even before the big fight that led to their separation. According to Hughes’ note, Heard said:

“I was heartbroken. My soul was dead. Felt nothing then.”

Heard’s relationship with the Tesla founder ended rather abruptly in March 2018. Heard had never loved him and had only kept him around to fill the vacuum Johnny Depp reportedly left.
