Not willing to halt her rising acting career due to pregnancy, Heigl and Kelley have decided to adopt a baby from Korea, the country where her older sister Meg was adopted from.
The National Enquirer breaks the report that instead of getting pregnant Katherine Heigl prefers to start a family with her musician husband Josh Kelley by adopting a baby from Korea. The celebrity couple is claimed to have been working on the option, already choosing an adoption agency and starting to fill out "the necessary paperwork."
The sex of the Korean baby whom Heigl and Kelley are keen to adopt hasn't been disclosed. The adoption agency that helps them going through adoption process has also been kept under wrap. However, the National Enquirer mentions that adopting baby from Korea holds special meaning for Heigl as her older sister Meg was also adopted from the country more than 30 years ago.
"They've finally decided adoption is the best option for them right now. Katherine's got several movie projects in the pipeline and a pregnancy would bring her career to a halt for a while," the National Enquirer reports of Heigl and Kelley's adoption option. As for the actress' sister Meg, the publication claimed she "has had a profound impact on Katherine's life, which is why she and Josh are trying to adopt a Korean child."
Heigl, best known for portraying the character of Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens in "Grey's Anatomy", met Kelley for the very first time on the set of his music video for "Only You." They then began dating and got engaged in June 2006. On December 23, 2007, they tied the knot in a private ceremony held at the Stein Erikson Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah.
