Though Johnny Depp is usually pretty tight-lipped about his private life, the 50-year-old actor was very matter-of-fact about his engagement to actress Amber Heard, 27.

While the Lone Ranger star spoke to reporters in Beijing today, March 31, one journalist asked him to confirm his and Amber's impending nuptials.

"The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway," Johnny quipped, per the Associated Press. "Not very subtle."

And a source confirms to Us Weekly that the ring in question does look a bit, well, feminine — featuring a single diamond on a band. According to this tipster, it was a ring intended for Amber, but when they realized it was too big for her ring finger, Johnny started wearing it.

Us first reported that the two lovebirds — who met on the set of their 2011 movie, The Rum Diary — were engaged in January, with one source telling the magazine even then that the proposal happened "a while ago."

It's no huge surprise that it's taken the happy couple this long to proclaim the happy news, though — they recently wrapped production on the film London Fields, in which Amber plays a clairvoyant who knows that one of her three suitors will one day kill her.

Hey, Johnny is still easy on the eyes, "chick ring" or no!
