A source speaking to US Weekly said that the engagement had actually happened a while ago but she just didn’t wear the ring straight away.
The event that saw Depp and Heard make their first official appearance together was the Art of Elysium’s Heaven Gala held at the Skirball Cultural Center in LA. The annual charity event is supported by many Hollywood stars and raises money to help children suffering serious medical conditions. They run workshops in a number of different artistic disciplines such as music, art and acting.
The couple met on the set of 2011 movie The Rum Diary and have been very discreet about their relationship since the beginning. In the movie Depp’s character first meets Heard’s character when she is bating naked and he immediately falls for her. It seems that Depp followed his character’s liking of Heard straight away although it was only last weekend that they were officially seen out together.
Depp had previously lived with French singer, actress and model Vanessa Paradis for 14 years and the couple have 2 children together. Paradis is probably best known in the UK for her 1987 hit ‘Joe Le Taxi‘ which was recorded when she was just 14-years old.
Paradis has just this week debuted a radical new look ditching her trademark blonde locks for a much shorter curly brunette look. She now splits her time between Paris and her home in LA where their children go to school.
Despite the shots of the huge ring on Amber Heard’s ring finger there has been no word of confirmation from either star’s management team.
