Katherine Heigl did not adopt daughter Naleigh because it was “trendy”.
The ‘Killers’ star says she is “very grateful” to have the 10-month-old baby in her life, and admits her mother’s decision to adopt Korean child Meg when she was little helped her inform her choice.
The 31-year-old actress said: “It’s so funny. My mom and I joke about it when people say ‘You’re just doing it because it’s trendy’.”
“My mum says ‘Well, I’m trendier than everybody because I was doing it in the 1970s when I adopted your sister.’
“I’m very grateful for this little being in my life. I’m very grateful she’s my daughter. I’m so grateful we found each other.”
Discussing her husband Josh Kelley, Katherine admits she is surprised she still loves him after more than four years of married life.
According to the Metro, Katherine said: “I’m still so infatuated with him. We’ve been together four and a half years so you’d think by now it would start to feel a little bit calm but I still think he’s so hot and so sexy and he’s a great dad.”
Recently the Hollywood leading lady revealed she was worried about having biological children in the future because of the possibility of leaving a child without a mother.
She said: “Maybe we’ll have four or five kids. We’ll see how two go. Two could throw me right over the edge.
“We’ve talked about biological children, and we haven’t ruled it out. But I would like to adopt again. It’s a little bit hard for me.
“If I have a biological child, is there a child now who will go without a mom?”
