Johnny Depp has slammed the rumours that he proposed Amber Heard because she was pregnant and said that it wasn't a "shotgun affair".
The Charlie And The Chocolate Factory star told NBC's Today show that Heard is a wonderful girl, who is sharp as a tack, wonderful Southern belle, sweet as can be and good for him, the New York Post reported.
The couple, who met on the set of the The Rum Diary in 2011, threw a star-studded engagement party earlier this month.
Depp has two children with French singer Vanessa Pardis from an earlier relationship.
On a visit to China late last month, Depp showed off his diamond engagement ring that he called a "chick's ring". Asked whether he was engaged, the Pirates of the Caribbean star said, "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle." He laughed as he lifted up his left hand and displayed a single diamond on a band around his ring finger.
