Amber Heard took to Instagram on Friday to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday.
The Aquaman star, 35, posted an adorable photo of herself and Oonagh Paige Heard – who was born via a surrogate mother – as they played with pink balloons.
‘My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year,’ the actress wrote underneath the post, adding a red heart emoji.

The ex-wife of Johnny Depp looked casual cool in the family snap, wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, with her blonde tresses pulled into a messy bun.
Meanwhile her little one sported adorable denim overalls and lavender socks, and had her hair styled into two cute tiny pigtails.
This isn’t the first time the Texas native has gushed about her child. When Oonagh turned six months, Amber commemorated the joys of motherhood with another sweet post.
‘The six best months of my life, the first six months of hers,’ she captioned a photo of her holding up her daughter and proudly beaming at her.

Heard announced the unexpected arrival of her little girl last year, by posting a sweet portrait of the baby laying on her chest.
She also wrote a lengthy caption about wanting to have a child under her own conditions:
‘I’m so 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,’ the star wrote, five years after her nasty split from Depp, 58.
‘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,’ she announced.
‘A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business. I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life,’ she wrapped up.
The name Oonagh (also spelled Una and Oona) is pronounced oo-nuh. It is a girl’s name of Irish origin meaning ‘lamb’. The middle name of Paige appears to be a tribute to her late mother Paige Heard, who died in May 2020.
A sources close to Heard claim that she welcomed the child via surrogate after being told that she would never be able to carry her own baby, according to Page Six.
Legal battle: Amber is set to face-off against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, 58, in their $100,000 million defamation trial that kicks off next week in Virginia, where they are both set to testify; Depp pictured in 2020
Meanwhile Amber is set to face-off against her ex-husband in person, in their $100,000 million defamation trial that kicks off next week in Virginia, where they are both set to testify.
Heard has listed James Franco, 43, and Elon Musk, 50, as witnesses in the case, in connection with Depp’s accusations she cheated on him with both men during the time they were married.
In the case, Depp and Heard are accusing one another of defamation, and Judge Penney S. Azcarate is expected to listen to all of the claims at the same time, leading to the extensive list of witnesses and evidence.
Depp initially sued Heard in March of 2019 over a 2018 opinion piece she penned for The Washington Post in which the actress said she had suffered domestic violence, but didn’t mention the name of the actor in the article.
Heard subsequently filed a $100 million countersuit against Depp in September of 2020.
The couple were married from 2015 to 2017. Heard filed for divorce from the actor in May 2016, and obtained a temporary restraining order against him, alleging that he had been verbally and physically abusive throughout their relationship.
The divorce was finalized in January 2017.
