Katherine Heigl has some exciting news! The former â€śGrey's Anatomyâ€ť star is pregnant with her third child. She and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, are expecting a baby boy in January, People reports.
Heigl is already a mother of two, but this is her first pregnancy. The 37-year-old actress and her hubby of eight years adopted both their daughters: Naleigh, 7, and Adalaide, 4.
The actress told People that their kids are thrilled they are getting a baby brother: â€śNaleigh and Adalaide could not be more excited to welcome their new sibling into the fold and Josh and I are overflowing with joy and gratitude.â€ť
Heigl has always been open about wanting to adopt before having biological kids. â€śAdoption has been a part of my life and a part of my family, so it was how I wanted to start,â€ť the actress told Us Weekly in 2010.
In 2009, the â€śState of Affairsâ€ť star adopted her first child, Naleigh. Naleigh's unique moniker is actually a nickname. Heigl and Kelley originally named their daughter Nancy Leigh after the actressâ€™ mother, Nancy, and sister, Margaret Leigh.
Three years after welcoming their daughter into their family, the couple adopted their second child, Adalaide Marie Hope, from Louisiana.
Their second daughterâ€™s name was also a meaningful choice. â€śAdalaide because of my great-grandmother, Marie after my middle name, and Hope because that is what the process became,â€ť Heigl said in 2012.
Now that the couple has a baby boy on the way, they couldnâ€™t be more thrilled. â€śThis is an incredibly exciting time for us filled with hope, anticipation and hormones,â€ť Heigl told People. â€śWell, only Iâ€™m filled with hormones, but everyone in the family gets to enjoy them.â€ť
We canâ€™t wait to meet Heiglâ€™s baby boy! Congrats to the actress and her family.
