Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley are already parents to two daughters, 7-year-old Naleigh and 4-year-old Adalaide, whom they adopted in 2009 and 2012, but their family is about to get a little bit bigger. Katherine is pregnant for the first time! She’s due in January 2017 and is said to be expecting a boy.
Here’s what she had to say about finding out she’s going to be a mom for the third time on her website, These Heavenly Days (yuck):
It was totally unexpected but thrilling nonetheless. Naleigh and Adalaide are over the moon and can not wait to spoil their new sibling rotten and of course Josh and I are full of high hopes and bubbling anticipation. The whole pregnancy thing is new to me but the thrill of having a baby is not. We’ve known for awhile that we wanted to add to our family and frankly didn’t really care how we chose to do that. We were considering adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible. Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age, I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us. Turns out it was very much in the cards!
Well, congrats to Katherine and Josh, I guess. They seem to really love being parents and this is something Katherine has wanted for a long time, so good for her?
Oh, and in case you were wondering (not like anyone really was), apparently her pregnancy won’t at all affect her new show Doubt, which frankly I didn’t even know was a thing.
