Johnny Depp, 50, Makes Big Confession About Engagement to Amber Heard, 27

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard EngagedJohnny Depp, 50, and his sugar baby, 27-year-old Amber Heard, have always kept quiet about their May-December rela­tion­ship, even though they’re rumored to have been dat­ing since 2011. But now, Johnny Depp has finally con­firmed that they are, in fact, engaged to be mar­ried. Well, sort of, but we’ll take what we can get from this very pri­vate celebrity couple.

When asked at a recent event about the sta­tus of the celebrity couple’s May-December rela­tion­ship and whether or not they’re headed for mar­riage, Johnny Depp responded, “The fact that I’m wear­ing a chick’s ring on my fin­ger is prob­a­bly a dead give­away. Not very sub­tle.” Depp was refer­ring to the sparkly piece of jew­elry he was sport­ing on his ring finger.

Accord­ing to an insider, the ring on Johnny Depp’s fin­ger was actu­ally the one he ini­tially gave his sugar baby when he pro­posed, but because it was too big for her, he started wear­ing it him­self and got Amber Heard a new one. Her new ring is esti­mated to be worth as much as $100,000—not a bad start to a mar­riage. Depp also report­edly dropped mil­lions on a man­sion for the two of them in Som­er­set, England.

The celebrity cou­ple hosted a lav­ish party, pre­sum­ably an engage­ment bash, on March 14 (see all the details of the event here), but there’s no word yet on any wed­ding plans.

What do you think: If you were dat­ing a rich older man, would you expect a big wed­ding, or pre­fer some­thing smaller and more intimate?
