Depp names beach after his new love

Johnny Depp has reportedly named a beach on his private island after Amber Heard.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star chose a section of Little Hall's Pond in the Bahamas to be named in honour of his new girlfriend - who he has dated since splitting from Vanessa Paradis after 14 years in June - as a Christmas present.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Johnny knows about romance after having been with a French woman all those years.

"He is now spending time with Amber in the Bahamas and presented her with her own beach as a Christmas gift."

Johnny, 49, is said to have named the beach Amber's Cove after noticing it looked like her hip when viewed on a map.

The pair are said to have initially got together this summer after meeting on the set of 2011 film 'The Rum Diary'.

However, Amber, 26, initially ended their romance after deciding she wanted to be single, but Johnny decided not to give up on the actress and sent her a personally-penned poem and a bouquet of roses every day throughout September to convince her to give him another chance. His plan eventually worked and she flew out to the Bahamas.

A source said at the time: "Johnny didn't give up - he missed her so much over the summer. They both love literature and the way he tried to win her back totally worked.

"Once they flew for a romantic break, they were back on as a couple. Johnny's the type to fall hard and he's vowed not to let a girl like Amber, who's beautiful and intelligent, slip through his fingers."
