Katherine Heigl isn’t letting Grey’s co-star Ellen Pompeo be the only new mommy on-set — she and her husband Josh Kelley are adopting a baby, reports Us Weekly.
Apparently, she will formally announce she’s adopting a baby girl from Korea, where her sister Meg was also adopted, on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to air Friday. (Sidebar: Did you hear Ellen is replacing Paula on American Idol? Like, as her permanent replacement? So random! I could see Ellen as a judge on America’s Next Top Dancing Comedienne, but on a SINGING show? Um, okay.)
After a six-month process, Katherine and Josh are adopting a 10-month-old named Nayleigh. Katherine has often said in interviews that she “always planned” to adopt.
“I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children,” Katherine told USA Today. “[It] doesn’t seem like any fun. I don’t think it’s necessary to go through all of that.”
Ah, that Katherine sure does have a way with words, doesn’t she? “Screw stretchmarks! I’m gonna adopt me a kid!” *SNIFF* *SNIFF* A beautiful sentiment.
