Are Johnny Depp, 50, and Amber Heard, 27, actually getting married or is this just one big misunderstanding? The web exploded with rumors that the celebrity couple was engaged after Heard was spotted trying to hide a big diamond on her ring finger. According to sources, the rumors are true, but Heard has only been telling “close friends” about the exciting news. “The proposal happened a while ago,” an insider told Us Weekly. “She just didn’t wear the ring.” We know what you’re thinking—why wear the ring now if you’re going to hide it anyways?
Reps for the celebrity couple have yet to officially comment on their rumored engagement, but another insider confirmed the news to People magazine, saying, “Of course they couldn’t be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together.”
The celebrity couple has only been together since 2011, but that seemed to be more than enough time to change Depp’s mind about marriage—the actor has previously said that he never really believed in the traditional concept of marriage because “marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married.” That’s why he never married his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, after 14 years and two kids together.
Speaking of the kids, Heard has reportedly been getting very close to his 14-year-old daughter, Lily Rose, and 11-year-old son, Jack, which could have something to do with Depp’s change of heart about marriage. “Amber has really taken well to the kids and really enjoys spending time with them,” revealed a source, adding, “And she’s even taken [Depp’s daughter] Lily shopping on her own for some bonding time.”
What do you think: Would you be OK with your ex’s new sugar baby spending quality time with your kids?
