Katherine Heigl is adopting a Korean girl



Tbd-katherineheigl091109 Katherine Heigl has been having lots of problems with her image lately, so she's doing what all the cool actresses are doing -- adopting a foreign baby. Are there no more orphaned children available in this country? Gee, that's good to know.

Heigl and husband Josh Kelley are finalizing the adoption of a little girl from Korea, Star reports: "It is a little girl and she'll be 10 months at the end this month," Katherine said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode that will air Friday. "Her name is Naleigh. Well, I am naming her after my mother and sister -- Nancy, Leigh. So we call her Naleigh. I wanted to tell everybody so you don't think I stole a Korean baby."

For you Heigl followers this is no surprise, since rumors had already been swirling about her plans. We wonder if this means that she'll be taking even more time off from Grey's Anatomy. That would be a real shame.
