Katherine Heigl, 37, and Josh Kelley, 34, are officially expecting! After adoption two children, this will be their first child together — and their first boy! Congrats.
Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley are welcoming a third baby into their family! The couple announced their happy news on June 23. Their son will join sisters Adelaide Marie Hope, 4, and Naleigh Moon, 7, who the couple adopted. We’re so excited for these two!
“The Kelley clan is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a third addition to our family,” the couple told People. “Naleigh and Adelaide could not be more excited to welcome their new sibling into the fold and Josh and I are overflowing with joy and gratitude.”
“This is an incredibly exciting time for us filled with hope, anticipation, and hormones. Well, only I’m filled with hormones, but everyone in the family gets to enjoy them,” Katherine added. “We couldn’t be more excited to be able to finally share this news with our fans and are looking forward to continuing to share the journey with you all. xoxo, Katie and Josh.”
The couple adopted their first daughter, Naleigh, from South Korea in September 2009 when she was 9 months old; she was born with a congenital heart problem, which was fixed via open-heart surgery before she left Korea. In 2012, the couple adopted Adelaide domestically! The pair have always said they’ve wanted a big family.
“Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged,” she said in 2012 in an interview with Parent & Child. “My sister Meg is Korean, and my parents adopted her three years before I was born. I wanted my own family to resemble the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea. We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first. I just wanted to be a mom. So however we do that, it’s fine with me.”
We’re so excited for the happy couple!
