Johnny Depp 'engaged'

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are reportedly secretly engaged.

The couple met while shooting 2011 movie The Rum Diary and have enjoyed an on/off romance since Johnny split from his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis.

After a period apart they have reunited and were seen holding hands at a recent Rolling Stones concert. Johnny is said to have realised how much 27-year-old Amber means to him so has taken steps to prove it to her.

"He proposed on her birthday [April 22]," an insider told National Enquirer. "They're not announcing it until the end of the year, but she and Johnny are now on the hunt for a vintage one-of-a-kind ring."

Although the couple are thought to have been together for some time, they only recently went public with their romance. One of the reasons is said to be Johnny's fear of hurting Vanessa, who he romanced for around 14 years and has two children with. Amber is also thought to be mindful of the situation, and wary of being cast as the 'other woman'.

However, it was Amber's desire for more commitment from Johnny which made him realise he needed to make some changes.

"She gave him an ultimatum, no woman wants to be someone's dirty secret. A few months ago she took off to Paris and started dating French model Marie de Villepin. He offered her everything, even marriage, to come back," the source explained.

"That was exactly what Amber wanted - for the world to know they're together and for Johnny to put a ring on it. She's had a crush on him since she was a teenager, so this is a dream come true!"

Hollywood hunk Johnny is rumoured to have quit alcohol in an effort to show Amber how much she means to him. The couple have spent time planning their life together, with speculation they would like to start a family.

"Johnny is really obsessed with Amber - she's all he ever talks about. He's like a besotted teenager," a source previously said.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

    For the record, it's the year 2014.

It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.
