Amber Heard, 35, secretly welcomed a baby girl in April and the actress shared the news with her Instagram followers on July 1. Heard is "beyond in love" with her daughter and she named her Oonagh Paige, more about what the name means in a bit. Heard had the baby via surrogacy after being told she would never be able to carry her own baby, her friends revealed to an outlet. 

Amber Heard has been constantly trolled on social media after the details of her relationship with Johnny Depp became public. It all began in May 2016 after she filed for divorce, just three days after Depp's mom died and accused him of physical abuse, adding that he usually turned violent against her under the influence of alcohol. After a lot of back and forth, the former couple reached a settlement and their divorce was finalized in 2017. The following year, Heard sparked controversy once again with an op-ed for WaPo saying she was abused. Depp sued her for libel, lost the case on November 2, 2020, and four days later he announced he was "asked to resign" from his role as Grindewald in 'Fantastic Beasts 3'. The ghost of their tumultuous past still haunts the exes and their fans go hard to defend their idols and things get nasty too often. For instance, Heard is being attacked after her baby news broke and people are rallying for Child Protective Services to get involved.

What does Amber Heard's daughter's name Oonagh Paige mean?

Amber Heard named her first-born Oonagh Paige Heard. Oonagh comes from the Irish word "uan" meaning a lamb or it may come from the Latin meaning "one" and is sometimes translated as "Unity", according to the Irish Central. In legend, Oonagh was “Queen of the Fairies” who had long golden hair which reached to the ground. The thought behind using 'Paige' as her daughter's middle name was to honor her mother Paige Parsons who died in May 2020 aged 63. Her mother's death had left Heard "heartbroken and devastated beyond belief."  

Announcing the news with her fans, Heard tweeted, "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." She is listed as Oonagh's sole legal parent according to sources and she's being hailed on the Internet for speaking about her issues with fertility. But at the same time, Heard is also being attacked after the news got out and sick trolls even suggested that her baby be taken away by the CPS. 

"Amber Heard should not be a mother. Call CPS or something. She abused several children. This is the monster we are talking about. She needs to be put in child and that child needs to be given to a peaceful, proper family," claimed a troll. "Oh Jesus. If anyone didn’t need to be a mother, it’s Amber Heard. I hope CPS is privy to this situation," another tweet read. "I’m gonna call CPS on Amber Heard’s baby and I’ve called real CPS before," wrote another troll.
