The DC Extended Universe has a number of highly anticipated projects coming down the line, starting with The Suicide Squad. But a couple of other projects are in various states of production, including James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. And as filming begins, Mera actress Amber Heard has shared a sweet photo of her new baby.

Amber Heard made her DCEU debut as Mera in Justice League, before her role was greatly expanded in the first Aquaman movie. But on top of diving back into the franchise in the upcoming sequel, Heard is also celebrating her new baby. You can see the two together in the adorable post below.

I mean, how cute is that? Amber Heard surprised the public when she welcome her new daughter Oonagh into the world earlier this month via surrogate. And while she’s no doubt spending long hours on set for Aquaman 2, it’s clear that Heard is enjoying arguably her biggest role yet: Mom.

The above image comes to us from Amber Heard’s personal Instagram page. She often uses social media to peel back the curtain on her life, including working out and preparation for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. And lately that also includes photos of her new baby girl, no doubt contributing to her whopping 4 million followers. Although with production for Aquaman 2 just starting, clearly Heard is approaching a very busy time in her life.

From the images that Amber Heard has been sharing, the 35-year old actress certainly seems thrilled with all that motherhood has to offer. The actress has been making headlines over the happy news, which in stark juxtaposition to the updates we’ve gotten in her continued legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

With production officially underway for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, it should be interesting to see what comes next for Amber Heard’s Mera. She recently got new footage thanks to Zack Snyder’s Justice League, revealing a bloody extended battle with Steppenwolf and her role in the Knightmare sequence. And while there’s been some calls for her removal, Heard is seemingly ready to don her character’s signature armor and red hair.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently set to arrive in theaters on December 16th, 2022. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
