Katherine Heigl “Overcome With Emotion” Meeting New Daughter

Posted by PZ on May 14th, 2012

Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley adopted a second daughter last month, and now the actress has spoken on how emotional the moment was for her. The couple already had one daughter, 3-year-old Naleigh, who was adopted from Korea. Katherine says that although she is usually not emotional, when she met her new daughter for the first time, she was overcome:

”I don’t cry easily or often but I’m not gonna lie, this was one of those moments where you can’t help but be overcome with emotion. There were some tears and lot of giddiness and joy. The moment they put her in my arms I just felt an overwhelming sense of awe and wonder that this perfect little being was our daughter.”

Katherine believes there are no rules to having a family, and she is glad her husband agrees to adopt before it is something she has always felt strongly about:

”I’ve always known I wanted to adopt and I fell in love with a man who was happy to have a family that included it … I’ve never felt that there were any rules that applied to how you have a family.”

The actress says she hopes to have two more kids, but her husband thinks three is the perfect number. She comments that they’ll decide in the future:

”I’d like two more, he thinks three’s a nice number, so we’ll see!”
