Katherine Heigl reveals she's given birth to first child after adopting two and admits she 'didn't think pregnancy was on the cards'

KATHERINE Heigl has given birth to her first child.

The former Grey's Anatomy actress was already a mum of two after adopting her daughters Naleigh and Adalaide, but welcomed her first son Joshua on December 20 with husband Josh Kelley.

The 38-year-old confirmed she was pregnant in a post on her Those Heavenly Days blog in June last year, revealing the news was a little bit of a shock for the couple, who have been married since 2007.
She wrote: "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!

"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."

The couple adopted their first child, eight-year-old Naleigh from South Korea in 2009, followed by four-year-old Adalaide from the U.S. in 2012.

The actress joked about her pregnancy cravings in an interview back in September, revealing she was hooked on junk food and couldn't get doughnuts out of her mind.
She told Entertainment Tonight: "On set, they always have a plethora of doughnuts in really pretty pink boxes, and I can't stop thinking about them."

Little Joshua might not be the couple's last baby – as in an interview back in 2012, Katherine told E! News: "I definitely want more kids. I think we've agreed to three but I'm pushing for four."

Katherine previously revealed her reasons for adopting her eldest child from South Korea, saying: "Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged.

"My sister Meg is Korean, and my parents adopted her three years before I was born.

"I wanted my own family to resemble the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea.

"We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first. I just wanted to be a mom. So however we do that, it’s fine with me."
