The news comes to celebrity gossip readers thanks to the ever-trusted “source”, who said: “Of course they couldn't be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together.” Heard has reportedly shared the news only with close friends so far. According to Celebuzz, the Lone Ranger actor popped the question on that most romantic of occasions - Christmas Eve - which makes it rather amazing that the couple have managed to keep the news under wraps for as long as they have.
