Actress Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley recently adopted a special needs daughter from South Korea. Read more on 10-month old Naleigh below.
Heigl posted the photos of her baby girl Naleigh on the animal foundation website Katherine founded with her mother. It’s called the “Jason Debus Heigl Foundation”, and is named after Katherine’s older brother that died at age 15 in a car accident. The charity runs a ranch for dogs that are rescued and then re-trained.
Katherine said she chose the name Naleigh, which is short for Nancy Lee. And Naleigh is a combo of Heigl’s mother’s name Nancy and her adopted sister’s middle name, Leigh. Heigl’s sister Margaret Leigh is also adopted from Korea and Katherine said she has “always planned” to adopt.
From People Magazine:
The Grey’s Anatomy actress and husband Josh Kelley have released the first photos of their daughter, a special-needs child they adopted from South Korea, on Heigl’s fundraising site.
“She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign,” Heigl, 30, said when announcing the news of her adoption on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week.
