It's hard to keep a secret in Hollywood, and although Amber Heard
was seen trying to cover up a diamond ring
on her left hand on Monday, she doesn't need to hide it anymore – PEOPLE has confirmed that she's engaged to Johnny Depp
"Of course they couldn't be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together," a source tells PEOPLE, adding that Heard has "told close friends" the news.
"Amber has really taken well to the kids and really enjoys spending time with them. And she's even taken Lily shopping on her own for some bonding time."
The couple, who met on the set of their 2011 movie The Rum Diary
went public with their relationship the following year after Depp, 50, announced his split
from partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis.
He and the French actress and singer have two children, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, but never married.
Heard, 27, who has said she's bisexual, was previously in a four-year relationship with Hawaiian artist and photographer Tasya van Ree.
The newly engaged couple are teaming up again on the big screen in the upcoming film London Fields
, which stars Heard and features Depp in a cameo.
