JOHNNY DEPP’s life is full of “mini-celebrations” now his eight-year-old daughter LILY-ROSE has been given the all-clear after her health scare earlier this year (07).
The little girl was hospitalized in London, where she received treatment for an undisclosed ailment as her father started work on movie musical Sweeney
Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Depp still isn’t going into details about his daughter’s illness, but he admits he can’t be thankful enough that she pulled through.
He tells America’s Entertainment Weekly magazine, “Now every single millisecond is a mini-celebration.
“Every time we get to breathe in and exhale is a huge victory. She pulled through beautifully, perfectly, with no lasting anything.”
And Depp will always be grateful to director pal Tim Burton and the cast and crew of Sweeney Todd for their support.
He adds, “Knowing that those people, Tim and the crew, shut down and stood by and waited… I didn’t know if I was coming back. I remember talking with Tim, saying, `Maybe you need to recast.'”
Lily-Rose is Depp’s daughter by long-time girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. The couple also has a son, Jack, who is five.
