Johnny Depp is engaged to wed his actress girlfriend Amber Heard, according to reports.

“The Pirates of the Caribbean” hunk began dating his “The Rum Diary” co-star following the breakdown of his 14-year relationship with Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children, in the summer of 2012, and the couple stepped out hand-in-hand as Depp promoted his blockbuster The Lone Ranger last year.

Now sources tell Celebuzz.com the pair is planning to wed after Depp popped the question to the beauty on Christmas Eve.

Another insider tells UsMagazine, “The proposal happened a while ago. She just didn’t wear the ring.”

Representatives for the famously private couple have yet to respond to requests for a comment, but Heard was photographed wearing a sparkler on her ring finger earlier this week.

If rumors of the engagement are true, it will be Depp’s second marriage – he wed Lori Anne Allison in 1983, but they split after two years.

The 50-year-old was previously engaged to actresses Jennifer Grey, Sherilyn Fenn and Winona Ryder, while he also dated supermodel Kate Moss.

Bisexual Heard, 27, has never been married, but she enjoyed a longterm relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree until their split in 2011.
