The 58-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor's high-profile defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard took another turn on Monday after a woman held up her baby to the actor and exclaimed: "This baby is yours."

Depp is suing 36-year-old Heard for $50 million after she called herself a "public figure representing domestic abuse" in an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post back in 2018. Heard never outrightly cited Depp by name within the piece.

Depp has constantly denied any allegations that he was physically violent toward his ex-wife.

Heard is countersuing her ex-husband for $100 million.

Per the Daily Mail, an incident occurred in the Fairfax County Circuit Court on Monday when a mother, who was watching from the galley, caused an interruption after Judge Penney Azcarate left the courtroom.

According to Law & Crime's Angenette Levy, who was present when the strange incident happened, the woman said to Depp: "Johnny I love you, our souls are connected."

Levy said that the Hollywood star simply turned to the gallery, waved, and smiled at the woman - as he often has during peculiar moments in the trial.

Watch Law & Crime's account of the moment below:

"She held up the baby and said: 'This baby is yours,'" Levy reported. The woman was soon approached by a deputy who had her removed from the court.

"The deputy was like 'You're outta here,'" Levy said, and the woman was expelled from the court.

The outburst caused a commotion in the courtroom which had to be settled down. "It was pretty wild," the reporter noted. "It was a moment."

Levy questioned whether the unidentified woman was waiting in line with her baby at 1:00 AM to get into the courtroom.

During the reporter's segment, the woman who'd made the outburst was standing with her baby stroller in the background outside the courtroom.

The woman later told Law & Crime that she and her husband formulated a plan and that "they thought it was a joke, and thought it would be funny."

"Just FYI everybody," Levy clarified, "Johnny Depp does not have a third baby out there that was at the courthouse today."

The defamation case between Depp and Heard continues this week and is scheduled to conclude on Friday, May 27.
