Depp's now-adult children, 22-year-old Lily-Rose and 20-year-old Jack have been mentioned several times throughout the trial, which has seen their famous father take the stand to testify against his former wife.

But what a lot of people aren't aware of, even those who are closely following the case, is that the 36-year-old actress is a parent herself.

Indeed, last summer, Heard shared with the world that she had become a mother for the first time.

The Aquaman star secretly welcomed a baby girl via surrogate on April 8, Page Six reported at the time.

Taking to Instagram on July 1, 2021, Heard shared a sweet photo of her cradling her newborn, Oonagh Paige, telling her followers that she is the child's "mom and dad". She has never disclosed the identity of her daughter's biological father.

She wrote at the time: "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. 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. 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."

Following her acrimonious split from Johnny Depp, Heard was, for a time, romantically linked with cinematographer Bianca Butti, who she had dated since January 2020. However, she ultimately decided to have a baby on her own.

An insider told Page Six after the child was born that Heard is "beyond in love" with her little one, who is named after her late mom, Paige.

Her mother died in May 2020 at the age of 63, leaving Heard "heartbroken and devastated beyond belief."

She referred to her mother as "the most beautiful woman I had ever known" in an Instagram post, adding: "It’s hard to imagine and even more difficult to say but I feel truly lucky to have been her daughter and been given the gift of having the light she shone on everyone, fall on me for nearly 34 years."

On July 16, Heard posted a photo of her holding Oonagh while working on a laptop.

She captioned the upload: "I’m just the mom and the dad. She’s the boss."

The Rum Diary actress has posted several videos of her and little Oonagh, giving followers an insight into their life together.

The two have reportedly been living in London, where Heard has been photographed pushing her daughter around in a stroller.

On April 8, Heard paid tribute to Oonagh on her first birthday. She wrote: "My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year."

Heard has also been known to post photos of her working out with the youngster.
