Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley are adopting a baby, her rep confirmed.
Kathrine, 30, and Josh 29, announced the news on Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“It is a little girl and she’ll be 10 months at the end this month,” she said. “She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign. I realized just recently that I basically forfeited my birthday for the rest of my life.”
RadarOnline.com, which first reported the news, said the 10-month-old is named Nayleigh.
On Ellen, Katherine explained the name.
“I am naming her after my mother and sister Nancy, Leigh,” she said. “So we call her Naleigh.”
Katherine, whose sister Meg was adopted from Korea, has said she “always planned” to adopt.
“I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children,” Katherine once told USA Today. “[It] doesn’t seem like any fun. I don’t think it’s necessary to go through all of that.”
