Daily Dish: Katherine Heigl Adopting a Baby Girl
Katherine Heigl and hubby Josh Kelley are expecting the arrival of adopted baby girl, Naleigh
We recently reported that Katherine Heigl was leaving Grey’s Anatomy in order to shoot a movie for the next five months, but that’s not the only reason why Katherine is taking the time off. On today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Katherine reveals that she and husband Josh Kelley are adopting a baby girl.
Katherine admits she has always had plans to adopt a child since it has been a big part of her personal life — her parents adopted her Korean sister back in the ’70s. Plus, her experiences while filming Knocked Up in 2007 really made the decision crystal clear.
“I’ve always planned to adopt anyway, but that definitely reinforced my want to,” she says. “I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children. Doesn’t seem like any fun. I don’t think it’s necessary to go through all of that.”
So instead, Katherine and Josh have been staring at photos of their 10-month-old baby from Korea, who they have named Naleigh, a combination of Katherine’s mother and sister’s names, Nancy and Leigh. The parents-to-be fell in love with Naleigh, a special needs baby, after finding her six months ago. And now, all they have to do is wait for thier baby to finally come home. (E! Online)
