Amber Heard has recently found herself in hot water following her infamous trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp. She is standing in court in a defamation trial, which is being streamed live across the world. Adding to the controversy, the actress recently made headlines after releasing information about her daughter.
Johnny isn’t the biological father of the child, so who is the father of Amber Heard’s daughter? Was it Elon Musk? This has piqued the interest of many viewers amid all the upheaval, so let’s try to uncover additional truths.
Who Is Amber Heard’s Baby, Oonagh?
In July 2021, Amber Heard announced the birth of her daughter, Oonagh Paige Heard, and said that her little baby was born in April. She wrote on Instagram, “I am 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.”
She continued in the caption, “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…She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.” In a later post, she referred to herself as both “the mom and the dad” of little Oonagh Paige.
Amber named her daughter after her late mother, Paige, who died in 2020. It can be remembered that the actress paid tribute to her mom following her death with a post on Instagram that read: “I am heartbroken and devastated beyond belief at the loss of my mom, Paige Heard. She left us too early, clasping onto the memory of her beautiful, gentle soul…”
Since sharing the news, the actress has posted videos and photos on her Instagram of her and her daughter living their life together immensely. On April 8 this year, she celebrated the first birthday of Oonagh.
She captioned a post, “My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year.” It seems that the mother and child are attached, even sharing pictures of her holding the baby girl while working out.
Who Is Amber Heard’s Baby Daddy?
As the defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continues in Virginia, their prior dating life is a hot topic of discussion online. Aside from the Pirates of the Caribbean star, with whom she was married for two years, the actress has dated James Franco and Mark Wystrach, among others.
The most well-known person Amber has dated is Elon Musk, the billionaire and Tesla entrepreneur. Following her divorce from Johnny, the two dated from 2016 to 2017. Recently, the internet is awash with rumors that the business mogul is also the father of her child, but is this true?
Friends of the actress revealed to Page Six that Oonagh was born via surrogate after Amber was “told she would never be able to carry her own baby.” A source shared, “The most important thing for Amber is that she’s open about Oonagh’s birth. There are so many women who feel they can’t talk about their fertility and are worried and embarrassed.”
The source continued, “Amber wants them to feel supported and realize that there are a multitude of ways to have a baby even if you have fertility issues.” Interestingly, the actress has avoided discussing her baby’s father in public appearances.
However, when she announced her daughter to the world, she acknowledged that the child was quietly welcomed into her life through a surrogate. As a result, fans have speculated that Elon Musk could be the father.
Back in 2020, Mirror reported that it was claimed the actress and billionaire were “locked in a legal battle over her frozen embryos.” A friend of Amber’s mother and sister claimed that Elon was suing the actress in an attempt to have the embryos destroyed.
“Paige told me…she was in a legal battle with him over the rights to embryos they had created together. He wanted to destroy them, and Amber tried to keep them to have a baby,” the source claimed.
Further details about Elon’s alleged legal battle against the actress are unavailable. Regardless of whoever the father is, Amber has referred to herself as “the mom and the dad” of her adorable daughter, Oonagh Paige.
As of now, she is focusing on her life with her daughter and also on her case against ex-husband Johnny Depp. Hopefully, the identity of the father will be revealed in the future.
