Katherine Heigl Adopts Girl, Imparts Pregnancy Wisdom


Katherine Heigl Adopts Girl, Imparts Pregnancy Wisdom

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.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
