Good for you, Katherine! We’re so happy you put your little girl first, and dropped your nasty cigarette habit!

New mom, Katherine Heigl, is a dedicated mother to her adopted baby girl, Naleigh — and even gave up her addiction to cigarettes to ensure her daughter is breathing clean air.

“Now I use an electronic cigarette. I know it’s ridiculous, but it’s helping me not to actually smoke real cigarettes. You feel like you are smoking, and you get to exhale but it’s just water vapor and not nicotine. I’ve been doing it for six months,” the 31-year-old actress told Parade magazine.

Katherine went on to say she’ll strongly dissuade her kids from ever picking up the habit themselves.

“Smoking sucks!” she admitted. “The one thing I would say to my kid is, ‘It’s not just that it’s bad for you. Do you want to spend the rest of your life fighting a stupid addiction to a stupid thing that doesn’t even really give you a good buzz?'”
