Katherine Heigl adopts second child
Katherine Heigl adopts again. The 33-year-old actress and her husband Josh Kelley are the newly parents of a another baby. Heigl’s representative confirmed the news for JustJared.com. No other details were available.
The news about Heigl adopting a second baby broke in mid April via National Enquirer. “They want Naleigh to have a little brother or sister soon. Josh has talked Katherine into adopting another child. He believes this could be the answer to their problems”, a source revealed at the time.
“My feeling about adoption is, Why not? There’s nothing about it that makes it any less meaningful of a relationship in my mind. I don’t think it’s for everybody, and I don’t think everybody should adopt. I’m not some crazy idealist. It’s not about the cause for me. But I do think no one should ever rule it out”, the former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actress told Redbook.
This is the second baby for Heigl and Kelley. In 2009 they adopted now 3-year-old daughter Naleigh from South Korea. Naleigh was 10 months at the time of her adoption. Talking about raising Naleigh, Heigl revealed that at one moment she “felt like, oh gosh, I’m not the kind of parent she prefers. Then I realized — I’m the cuddler. I’m the one she comes to if she’s hurt”.
33-year-old Heigl met Josh Kelley on the set of his music video for ‘Only You’. They become engaged in June 2006. They were married on December 23, 2007 in Park City, Utah.
