Oonagh Paige Heard was born on April 8, 2021, with the help of a surrogate. The 35-year-old actress took to Twitter and Instagram on Thursday to say that she gave birth to her first child with the help of a surrogate.
Surrogacy: it is a contract between a couple’s intended parents and a woman who commits to having their kid. There is a legal instrument that binds the two people involved and protects them from any misunderstandings. When a couple is unable to conceive on their own, they seek the help of a surrogate.
“I’m so excited to share this news with you,” Heard wrote alongside a photo of her holding her newborn. “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.”
Heard went on to say that she is still scared to talk about her personal life. “A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business,”
she noted. “I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this.”
The Aquaman actor finished on a positive note after announcing her daughter’s name, which might be an homage to Heard’s late mother, Paige, who died in May 2020. She went on to say, “She’s the start of the rest of my life.”
Heard was associated at the time with cinematographer Bianca Butti, whom she had been dating since January 2020, but she took the choice to have a kid on her own some time ago and is “glad” to be Oonagh’s only legal mom, according to reports.
After the baby was born, a source told ET exclusively that Heard is “beyond in love” with her daughter, Paige, whom she named after her late mother.
The birth is especially painful for her because she lost her own mother in May 2020 at the age of 63, and she described herself as “heartbroken and distraught beyond description” at the time.
In an Instagram post, she referred to her mother Paige as “the most beautiful woman I had ever known,” adding, “It’s hard to imagine and even harder 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.”
Heard has shared footage of her and her daughter spending their lives together on Instagram after breaking the news. They’ve been residing in London, where Heard has been seen pushing the adorable baby in a stroller.
Heard celebrated her baby girl’s first birthday on April 8, 2022. She penned, “My little O is a year old today. I still can’t believe you’re here. The greatest year.”
Even though Heard and her daughter don’t seem to be able to get away from each other, she often posts pictures of her holding the child while she works out.
