Katherine Heigl, star of Knocked up and other blockbuster hits, and her husband, Josh Kelley welcomed home a new baby girl this week. The girl, who was adopted domestically, has been named Adelaide Marie Hope Kelley. Adelaide joins a big sister, Naleigh, now 3, who was adopted in 2009 from South Korea.
Heigl has spoken openly about the adoption process and why it is so important to her and husband, Josh. Katherine grew up with a sister who was also adopted from Korea. The couple, who married in 2007, have never spoken publicly about what drew them to the adoption route, but instead have stated that they wanted to be parents and it didn’t matter how parenthood happened for them.
The couple does not discount the possibility of biological children also joining their family and have taken a “wait and see” approach to how their family will develop. Right now the couple is overjoyed with the new addition to their family.
