Heard’s appearance over the weekend is her first since her high-profile trial ended in June this year. Depp brought the case forward to sue Heard for $50 million for defamation in regards to a a story in the Washington Post in 2018.

In the story, Heard claimed that she was a survivor of domestic abuse following her relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who she met in 2009 on the set of their film The Rum Diary.

While the actress spoke of her time as a girlfriend and wife during the Virginia trial, she spoke less so of her role as a mother.

Speaking on the Today Show with Savannah Guthrie, Heard explained what she will tell Oonagh about the trial when she grows up.

She said: “I think no matter what, it will mean something. I did the right thing. I did everything I could to stand up for myself and the truth.”

The photos of Heard playing with Oonagh come as the actress continues to fight to get insurance to cover the $8 million she owes Depp in legal fees, after losing the court case.
