American actress Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley have adopted a 10-month-old special needs baby girl from South Korea earlier this month.
They named their daughter Nancy Leigh, nicknamed Naleigh, after Katherine’s mother Nancy and sister Margaret Leigh. The couple released their first family photo via Katherine’s animal-rescue foundation…
Katherine’s sister is an adopted Korean; and Katherine has always wanted to follow her parents’ path.
The adoption process was sped up because of Naleigh’s health condition; she had to undergo a heart operation two months after she was born and probably needs some extra care, which her new found parents should be able to provide.
