Is Johnny Depp Engaged?

Rumors have been spreading like wild fire about Johnny Depp and his newly announced girlfriend, Amber Heard. There are speculations because Amber was spotted Tuesday night hiding her left hand. Several paparazzi claim to have actually seen the rock, triggering Amber to cover her hand. It could just be a total coincidence, but we (and the rest of the media) think differently! If the rumors are true, this will be the first marriage for both of the stars. Johnny dated his previous girlfriend for 14 years, but never actually put a ring on her finger. And Amber, dated her previous boyfriend for 4 years, but must have never been serious enough to tie the knot. The hot (newly engaged) couple attended the Golden Globes this past weekend. This was actually the first time the celebrity couple publically announced their relationship. The two met in 2011 on the set of The Rum Diary, but nobody knew for sure if they were an item, until now. The two love birds did in fact decline the red carpet, pr
