Johnny Depp, 50, and his sugar baby, 27-year-old Amber Heard, have always kept quiet about their May-December relationship, even though they’re rumored to have been dating since 2011. But now, Johnny Depp has finally confirmed that they are, in fact, engaged to be married. Well, sort of, but we’ll take what we can get from this very private celebrity couple.
When asked at a recent event about the status of the celebrity couple’s May-December relationship and whether or not they’re headed for marriage, Johnny Depp responded, “The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle.” Depp was referring to the sparkly piece of jewelry he was sporting on his ring finger.
According to an insider, the ring on Johnny Depp’s finger was actually the one he initially gave his sugar baby when he proposed, but because it was too big for her, he started wearing it himself and got Amber Heard a new one. Her new ring is estimated to be worth as much as $100,000—not a bad start to a marriage. Depp also reportedly dropped millions on a mansion for the two of them in Somerset, England.
The celebrity couple hosted a lavish party, presumably an engagement bash, on March 14 (see all the details of the event here), but there’s no word yet on any wedding plans.
What do you think: If you were dating a rich older man, would you expect a big wedding, or prefer something smaller and more intimate?
