Johnny Depp Confirms Amber Heard Engagement: My "Chick's Ring" Is a "Dead Giveaway"
Depp-initely engaged! Johnny Depp isn't one for explicit, direct public statements about his private life -- so when the Lone Ranger star, 50, "opened up" about his top-secret engagement to Amber Heard in Beijing on Monday March 31, it was typically quirky.
The Associated Press reports that Depp was asked whether he was, in fact, engaged. "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle," Depp replied. The AP explains that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor was wearing a ring featuring a "single diamond on a band around his ring finger. And indeed, it really is a "chick's ring," one source tells Us Weekly: The engagement ring Depp gave Heard, 27, was "too big for her, so he started wearing it," explains the source.
Us confirmed back in mid-January that Depp had proposed to his Rum Diaries costar Heard after about a year and a half of dating. Promoting new film Transcendence in China Monday, Depp also fielded a question about any potential wedding plans. "I think that I would be better at making women's shoes than I would be at wedding planning, I can't plan anything," the 21 Jump Street alum reasoned. "I'm really bad at that stuff."
As previously revealed, the future spouses celebrated their impending nuptials at an engagement party held inside The Carondelet House in L.A. March 14 with pals like Marilyn Manson, Steven Tyler and Mandy Moore in attendance.
It will be the first marriage for Heard and the second for Depp, who was married to Lori Anne Allison for two brief years in the mid-80s. He and French actress/singer Vanessa Paradis were in a relationship for 14 years before announcing their split in June 2012. They share kids Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11.
