“I’m so excited to share this news with you,” Heard, 35, wrote, captioning a photo of herself holding her daughter in bed. “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.”
The actress added that she hopes it becomes “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 continued. “I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this.”
Heard’s announcement comes months after a British court refused her ex-husband Johnny Depp permission to appeal a judge’s ruling that he assaulted her. Depp and Heard were married from 2015 to 2017.
In March, two Court of Appeal judges said the Hollywood star cannot challenge the High Court’s rejection of his libel lawsuit against the publisher of The Sun newspaper for labeling him a “wife beater” in an article.
