Katherine Heigl Welcomes Baby Boy Into The World

  • Posted by beth on January 17, 2017

Katherine Heigl has welcomed her third child into the world with husband Josh Kelley.

The actress and singer-songwriter already have two children, but this is actually Katherine’s first experience of pregnancy due to her two elder children being adopted into the family.

Their baby boy has been named Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr. after his dad, with the Grey’s Anatomy star reportedly giving birth to him on December 20, 2016.

Heigl took to her blog last summer to share the news of her unexpected pregnancy.

It was totally unexpected but thrilling none the less… The whole pregnancy thing is new to me but the thrill of having a baby is not.

Katherine isn’t new to parenthood, being the mother to adopted daughters Naleigh, 8, and Adelaide, 4.

Naleigh was adopted from South Korea by the couple in 2009, followed by Adelaide being adopted domestically three years afterwards.

The 38-year old didn’t think that pregnancy was an option due to her age, so the news that a baby boy was on the way left her and husband Josh thrilled.

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!

Katherine shared her pregnancy journey on her blog Those Heavenly Days, taking to the site to share some helpful tips, eat well plans and other things she learned as a mom-to-be.

I thought that even if only a few of my discoveries were helpful to another pregnant gal I should for sure share them. Just like so many wonderful women have shared with me their tips, tricks and advice for getting through this experience with grace and good humor.

It seems the Emmy award-winning actress took to pregnancy really well and is delighted to be adding another bundle of joy to her growing family.

In an interview with E! in 2012, Heigl revealed she would like four kids altogether.
