In one of the pics, Katherine and her husband Josh Kelley are seen flanking the 10-month-old special-needs Korean little girl whom they call Naleigh.
Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley have taken it to the official site of their fundraising to post several first pictures of their adopted daughter, a 10-month-old special-needs Korean child whom they name Nancy Leigh. One of the four posted photos sees the new parents flanking the little girl. The threesome is photographed wearing complementary-colored outfits.
In companion to the pics, there is a message which read, "Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley have adopted a 10 month old baby girl from Korea. Katherine and Josh have named their daughter Nancy Leigh and she will go by the nickname Naleigh." The post furthermore revealed, "She is named after Katherine's mother Nancy and Katherine's sister Margaret Leigh. Katherine, Josh and Naleigh are together and doing well."
More photos of Naleigh can be seen on Katherine's fundraising site.
In an interview with "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last week, Katherine Heigl publicly confirmed that she and Josh Kelley were adopting a Korean baby girl. At that time the actress was quoted as describing, "She is a special needs baby and because of that it all moved so much faster. They wanted to get her to us as quickly as possible." She also stated, "She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign."
Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley, who is a singer and songwriter, have been married since December 2007. Rumors of them planning to adopt have been circulating since late last year.
