Johnny Depp, Amber Heard ‘excited’ to be engaged

2014-01-21 09:32

Los Angeles – Hollywood actor Johnny Depp and actress Amber Heard are engaged to be married.

“They couldn’t be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together. Amber has really taken well to the kids and enjoys spending time with them,” People magazine reported, citing an unnamed source.

Representatives for Depp (50) and Heard (27) did not immediately confirm the report.

Depp, a veteran whose diverse career includes Edward Scissorhands and the recent Pirates of the Caribbean series, was previously in a 14-year relationship with French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis.

They have two children and were not married. They ended their relationship in 2012.

When the couple separated, entertainment media speculated that Depp may have had a relationship with Heard who was his co-star in the film, The Rum Diary.

Heard is known for the film, Zombieland. She has spoken of her bisexuality and was recently in a four-year relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree. They split in 2012 at about the same time as Depp and Paradis.

Depp was married in the 1980s to make-up artist Lori Anne Allison. He has also dated actress Winona Ryder and British supermodel Kate Moss.

Depp and Heard are starring in the upcoming film, London Fields.
