Johnny Depp has flown to his home in the South of France for a family holiday with Vanessa Paradis and their two children, Lily-Rose and Jack.
While the couple had agreed to keep a cordial relationship for the sake of their kids, it appears as if Johnny Depp has now decided he wants more.
Instead of spending his break from filming The Lone Ranger in New Mexico with rumored new girlfriend Amber Heard, Johnny Depp rushed to see Vanessa Paradis and presented her with an antique gold pendant inscribed with a message about how he will always love her.
A friend told The Sun: “They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not.
“But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it’s almost as if they could make another go of things.
“Johnny wants to be with his family, he’s a very family oriented man, his kids mean everything to him.”
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis need to spend time together with their kids away from the distractions of Hollywood, according to the friend and they decided on France where they have spent some of their happiest times.
Johnny Depp, 48, and Vanessa Paradis, 39, got together in 1998 when they met in the Costes Hotel in Paris while he was filming the Roman Polanski film The Ninth Gate.
The actor previously had a high-profile engagement to Winona Ryder and a long-term relationship with Kate Moss and Vanessa Paradis had just come out of a relationship with French-Slovenian actor Stanislas Merhar, having been reportedly engaged to singer Lenny Kravitz before that.
A year after they got together, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ first child, daughter Lily-Rose, now 13, was born, followed by their son Jack in 2002.
They never married but Johnny Depp has stated that having children cemented roots for him and added that they gave him “real foundation, a real strong place to stand in life, in work, in everything”.
Johnny Depp added: “You can’t plan the kind of deep love that results in children. Fatherhood was not a conscious decision. It was part of the wonderful ride I was on. It was destiny; kismet. All the math finally worked.”
