Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Engaged! 5 Facts About Their Love


Johnny Depp put a ring on it!

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are engaged!

Their courtship was brief — if you blinked, you may have missed it. That's partly because they've been extremely private: Despite hooking up a while back in their Rum Diary days, the pair only just made their first official public appearance together at the Art Of Elysium gala earlier this month. Here's what you need to know about their relationship! 

The proposal actually went down a while ago.
Depp reportedly popped the question on Christmas Eve, but Heard wanted time to mull it over. An insider dished, "She turned him down before she said yes. So she waited and was thinking about it for a long time."

Depp is a serial proposer.
Before Heard, Depp was engaged to Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder and maybe Kate Moss. He was only married once — to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison when he was 20. So let's not hold our breath for a wedding just yet.

Heard may be giving up one of her favorite things: women.
And the publicity she gets from dating them. Before Depp, Heard was openly dating female photographer Tasya Van Ree and making her rounds at LGBTQ events. Good deeds for the community made for good PR ... but not necessarily good box office clout.

They don't mind mixing business with pleasure.
They met on the set of The Rum Diary, and will share the screen once more in the crime thriller London Fields, in which Heard will star and Depp makes a cameo.

Depp's baby mama and ex-partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, doesn't seem too happy about the news.
Paparazzi snapped Paradis with a pretty unflattering new short, dark 'do, flipping the bird — just as news broke of the engagement. Looks like she cut that guy right outta her hair!
