He already has two kids with his ex, Vanessa Paradis, but is Johnny Depp about to become a father again? Reports have been swirling for a few weeks now that the 50-year-old actor and his much younger fiancée, 27-year-old Amber Heard, have a baby on the way. Johnny Depp denied the rumors, saying, “No, no truth to that. [It’s] not a shotgun affair.”

But Amber Heard’s ex-boyfriend, Mark Wystrach, is claiming that it’s no rumor—he says the celebrity couple really is expecting their first child together. “She’s pregnant already! I saw her three weeks ago,” he told In Touch. “Amber and I dated years ago, but we are still close.”

There’s still no word from Johnny Depp or Amber Heard on these latest baby claims, but we have a feeling it’s all just gossip. Besides, if anyone would know it would be Depp (we hope), and he said himself that it’s not true—unless, of course, she just hasn’t told him yet.

In any case, Depp has made it pretty clear that he wouldn’t necessarily be opposed to having kids with his young wife-to-be. “I love kids. I have two, and they’re perfect. Man, I’d make 100. But I’ve got the easy gig, right?” he said during his appearance on Extra TV.

He’s also admitted that he’s happier than ever with Amber Heard, referring to his young fiancée as a “wonderful girl” who’s “sharp as a tack,” adding that she’s “sweet as can be” and good for him.

What do you think: Johnny Depp is 50—is that too old to have more kids?
