“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,” the actress told her Instagram followers at the time.

Oonagh Paige Heard Heard introduced her daughter via Instagram in July 2021, writing, "She’s the beginning of the rest of my life."

“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.”
