Johnny Depp looks after Amber

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has been welcomed into Amber Heard's family, with her dad bonding particularly well with him.

The couple threw a lavish engagement party for friends and family at Carondelet House in LA earlier this month, after Amber was spotted on numerous occasions wearing a sparkler on her ring finger.

One person who can't wait for the Hollywood duo to get hitched is Amber's father David Heard, who has welcomed Johnny into the family with open arms.

"I'm so pleased that he's in our family. The age difference makes him a bit closer to my age, so we get on great. We have a lot of fun together, and he takes good care of my daughter, so what more could I ask for? He's good for her and does the right thing by her," David gushed to British magazine Grazia.

Texas natives David and wife Paige are even forward planning for the arrival of mini Johnnys, and are unfazed by the couple's 23-year age gap.

"Her mother and I are looking forward to grandchildren. And they've talked about buying a house in England," he excitedly said.

While no official plans have been made for the wedding, David reveals that it will be a small family affair and not an over-the-top showbiz bash.

Johnny and 27-year-old Amber met while filming the 2011 movie The Rum Diary, and struck up a friendship.

When Johnny, 50, split with long term partner Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has children Lily-Rose, 14 and 11-year-old Jack, they pursued a romantic relationship.

"The wedding is going to be very private. It's intimate family only. The wedding isn't going to be in Texas, but it's a secret!" David teased.
