Melissa Kates, a spokeswoman for Katherine Heigl, has confirmed that the actress and her musician husband Josh Kelley are adopting a baby. Though so, Melissa refuses to provide further details on the process.
Radar Online which brings forth exclusive report on the matter claims that Heigl and Kelley are adopting a baby girl this week and have been working on the process for at least six months. The baby that the pair will adopt is approximately 10 months old and is from Korea. Her full name is Nayleigh and her nickname will be Leigh.
"She is thrilled. She and Josh are so happy," Radar Online quotes a source close to the situation as stating.
Katherine Heigl confirmed in October last year that she and singer-songwriter husband Josh Kelley, whom she's been married to since December 2007, do have plans to adopt. "[Adoption is] sort of something we're looking into doing in the future," so she said at that time. "It's definitely something I'm very passionate about, have always felt passionately about."
"My sister is Korean. My mother adopted her, so she's a huge important part of my life, and it's just always been on my mind," added the small and big screen actress.
Adoption aside, Heigl is currently on temporary absence from "Grey's Anatomy" as she shoots her movie "Life As We Know It". She recently threw a baby shower at her house in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles for co-star Ellen Pompeo, who is due to give birth in October.
