Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley have completed their adoption of a 10-month-old girl from Korea — and she’s a real cutie.
The Emmy-winning Grey’s star and her singer-songwriter spouse have named their new baby daughter Nancy Leigh, after the actress’s mother Nancy and sister Margaret Leigh — who was adopted from the same Asian nation in the 1970s. The new addition to the Heigl-Kelley Family will go by the nickname Naleigh, Katherine’s spokeswoman Melissa Kates announced on Thursday.
“They sent us a picture. They told us that it was a little girl and who she was and the information about six months ago,” Katherine said in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last Friday. “It was meant to take a long time. This sort of thing can take years.”
The process moved faster because Naleigh is a special needs baby. “They wanted to get her to us as quickly as possible,” she added.
