When Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of actor Johnny Depp, announced on Instagram that she was "sexually fluid," it got many people talking. But for the actor, it was a move that gave him yet another reason to be proud of his daughter.

Although the news of Lily-Rose's sexuality came as a surprise to the internet, Johnny Depp wasn't surprised.

"She's got thousands of followers of social media, and they were all taken completely by surprise," he told the Daily Mail. "But not me, I already knew because she tells me everything--she's not afraid to say anything to me. We're super tight and I'm very proud of our relationship."

In August Lily-Rose Depp revealed her fluid sexuality in a picture posted on Instagram for LGBTQ activist iO Tillet Wright. Lily-Rose posed in Wright's Self Evident Truths project, which is a series of photos featuring 10,000 people in the U.S. that identify as anything other than 100 percent straight, according to the project's website.  

Other celebrities have also posed for Wright's project including: comedian Rosie O'Donnell, singer Miley Cyrus, hip-hop star Azealia Banks and Cara Delevingne.

For Depp, his daughter's sexuality isn't the thing that he's worried about, but rather, Lily-Rose's quickly blossoming career, which includes appearing in two movies and modeling for famous fashion designers, including Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld, the Daily Mail reports. 

"It's such a funny thing to see your daughter transitioning from your baby, your little girl, to suddenly being a young woman," Depp said. "And whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice. I'm there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do."
