They had to own up to it sooner or later! On Jan. 17, four days after Amber was spotted trying to hide some serious bling on her left hand, the couple’s engagement was confirmed.
You can’t keep a secret in Hollywood! Amber Heard, 27, and Johnny Depp, 50, were trying to fly under the radar — and Amber even tried to hide her engagement ring on Jan. 13 — but that cat is officially out of the bag: they’re getting married!
Amber Heard & Johnny Depp Get Engaged
“Of course they couldn’t be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together,” a source told People. The source added that Amber has only told her close friends about the engagement so far. Well everyone else probably knows now!
Johnny and Amber met in 2011 while filming their movie The Rum Diary. They went public with their relationship a year later after Johnny announced his separation from Vanessa Paradis, who he was with for 14 years and with whom he has two children, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11.
In fact, it’s actually Amber’s relationship with Johnny’s children that may have made him realize that she’s wife material. “Amber has really taken to the kids and really enjoys spending time with them,” the same source said. “She’s even taken Lily shopping on her own for some bonding time.”
Amber, who has admitted that she’s bisexual, was previously in a four-year relationship with female photographer Tasya van Ree.
Likely before Johnny and Amber tie the knot though, they’ll be hitting the big screen together once again. The movie London Fields, which stars Amber and features a cameo from Johnny, is set to be released this year.
