Johnny Depp Confirms Engagement to Amber Heard, Denies Pregnancy Rumors on ‘Today Show'(Video)

April 4, 2014

Johnny Depp confirmed he is engaged to longtime girlfriend, now fiance actress Amber Heard in an interview with Savannah Guthrie on the ‘Today Show’ and denied rumors that Heard is pregnant.

While Johnny Depp was ostensibly on the program to speak about his new movie, Transcendence,’ in which he portrays a scientist whose brain is transferred to a super computer upon his death, and he takes on a new life of infinite power, he did also weigh on on some of the real-world topics that circulate in the celebrity world when Today Show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie broached them.

The 50-year-old actor and director is notably private, saying during the interview when asked about fame that it was “like living like a fugitive.” But that said, he has been seen in public with a diamond ring, much like a woman’s engagement ring. The reports have gone far and wide that he is engaged to 27-year-old Amber Heard.

And so it was, as the camera zoomed in, that Savannah Guthrie asked, “Is that an engagement ring?

To which Johnny Depp replied, “That’s a chick’s ring.”

When she asked if it meant he was engaged, he repeated, “It means I’m wearing a chick’s ring.” Guthrie then joked “Don’t make me go ‘Meet the Press’ on you.”

Indeed, Guthrie, who has a law degree, was virtually finding herself in the role of a litigator in court, as she continued her follow-up questions.

While never uttering the words, Johnny Depp did acknowledge his engagement without ever having to say the words. When Guthrie said, “I think you look engaged. Congratulations.” He said, “Thank you.”

Asked if he was excited, he said, “Yeah. she’s a wonderful girl. She’s sharp as a tack, wonderful, southern belle and sweet as can be and good for me.”

Guthrie then asked about rumors that his fiance is pregnant. More specifically a tabloid cover story that is brazen in saying a baby is on the way as if it is a confirmed fact. So Guthrie asked, “Are you expecting?”

To which Johnny Depp said, ““Expecting what? A child? Good God, what do you think I am, a savage? No, no no no. It’s not a shotgun affair.”

As the interview concluded, Savannah Guthrie — who just got married and who famously surprised everyone by announcing her pregnancy at the wedding — gave him her wedding planner book.

You can see the replay below and hear Johnny Depp tell it in his own inimitable fashion, and see the close-ups of the gorgeous diamond “chick’s ring!”
