Heigl To Adopt

| Filed under: Baby BlabberKatherine Heigl

This might be why constant smoker Katherine Heigl hasn't been spotted publicly with a cigarette in her hand for a while.

Looks like Heigl is going to become a mommy soon!

But, she isn't preggers.

In Touch Weekly is confirming that Heigl and her hubby, Josh Kelley, are in the process of adopting a baby from Korea.

A friend of the couple says, "They've filled out the paperwork and have been approved and now it's just a matter of waiting.They've been planning this for a long time."

So why adopt from Korea?

Well, Katherin'e sister, Meg, was adopted from Korea over 30 years ago. That apparently has made Heigl feel closer to the culture.

However, Korea has a law that prospective parents must be generally be married for three years before adopting. Makes sense.

Hiegl got married last December. The couple doesn't mind waiting, though.

A source says, "It's always been her dream to adopt. They haven't ruled out a biological child down the line either."

Congrats to the future parents.

Let's hope the adoption process goes by smoothly.

    wow!

    Perez, I have to say that I appreciate your constant calling out of celebs who are constantly puffing away at cigarettes. I mean it! I quit about two months ago and quitting is ball-bustingly HARD. When you are quitting, cigarettes are constantly on the brain. But seeing your nasty comments about how gross it is, and it is, coupled with those TV ads where you have to relearn how to do things without a cigarette, they really helped me. Keep it up!

    Obama should quit too!! Yuck!



  7. 7

    Adoption overseas is all good, but there are so many children in the United States who need homes. What is wrong with American children?!!



  8. 8

    WHAT THEY CAN'T HAVE THEIR OWN FIRST!



  9. 9

    …and what's with Korea? Were they having a sale? "Bless The Beasts and Children" even if they are in the discount aisle…

    Good for her. If you have the money to share, I say share it. You cannot have too much love in a house hold.

    I don't get it. Whats wrong with having a child the old fashioned way?



  21. 21

    Adopt an AMERICAN BABY you PIECE of SHITTTT,

    Damn IT we have enough here that could benefit from your rich ass!!!!!!!!!



  22. 22

    i need a smoke.



  23. 23

    Ugh it's so arrogant to think that a child will be better off living with you than in their home in their country with their real family.

    Great if her sister was adopted from Korea but she hasnt had to live her life with parents who will always be hounded by the press.

    If she has the money to spare, why cant she just give it to a family in Korea who need it rather than take their child away from them…oh wait, of course, they'd get nothing out of it…



  24. 24

    Great. I think there are some adoptable children in this country too. But I guess that's not as easy as it is to go elsewhere so they don't want to be bothered….



  25. 25

    bahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    get out of America if you cant adopt an American Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  26. 26

    if she had her own she may get fat.
    who wants that.

    I think that it's great there adopting, but what about having a good ole american kid? It's not like we don't have kids here who needs a home.

    37

    Perez why are you so obsessed with other people smoking? Is it some kind of Freudian thing? You really need to get over it.

    Re: ScreamDream – GOOD OLE AMERICAN KIDS SUCK THAT'S WHY!



  39. 39

    that's adorable. they're a good looking couple.



  40. 40

    Whats with these Hollywood types, can't one of them adopt a baby from the USA or are they so perverted, no agency will give them a baby from the USA.



  41. 41

    yay!!!!!!! thats so nice of them. good luck to heigl and co.!!!!!!!!



  42. 42

    I think it is wonderful when anyone adopts a child and gives them a home and a loving family. I just wish people would remember that they don't have to go around the world to find children in need. There are hundreds of thousands of children right here in the U.S. that are desperatly in need of a loving family too.



  43. 43

    Why do these celebrities adopt from other countries when there are plent of babies in th U.S that need homes???!!!



  44. 44

    Some of you are such negative assholes. Its their choice if they want to have their own kids, or if they want to adopt - and if so from where.

    I think its nice that her sister was adopted from Korea, and she wants to do that also.

    And all this 'adopt from the US' bullshit - I can tell you that the life of an orphaned child in Korea would be MUCH DIFFERENT to that of one in the States. All kids need homes - its not about race.



  45. 45

    Somebody is LYING. She said she never wanted to have children. Her quote was "I'm done with the whole idea of having my own children. Doesn't seem like any fun."

    And that was just after she got married.



  46. 46

    what the hell is wrong with adopying a child from/in america?
    talk about ”benedict arnolds”……all you "celebrities" need to take care of america first,remember who made you the millions in yr bank accounts.



  47. 47

    And one more American child stays in foster care because he or she is just not exotic enough for celebs who adopt.



  48. 48

    And one more American child remains in foster care because he or she is just not exotic enough for celebs who adopt.

    Re: Lulustre – You're right it's their choice and I respect it because it is the most beautiful act of love… both my brothers are adopted and I am soo proud and have the highest respect to my parents because what they have done is beautiful…But!! and there's always a but.. they were adopted here in the US, through a Christian institution, and the process didn't cost thousands of dollars…it was more like a donation!!! I think that the reason why so many people adopt outside the U.S. is because a lot of the time the process is cheaper, less regulated and faster… and I would love to see either of the Presidential Candidates address this issue… you know how many parents are desperately trying to conceive and they can't..and decide to adopt, but can't afford the initial process all at once…several thousands of dollars to save a child from orphanages?????!!! it has become such a disgusting business!!! barf

    What a bunch of a*sholes MOST of you are. My children are both adopted from other countries and I am not a rich celebrity. It is not easy to adopt in the US and the majority of domestic adoptions are now OPEN adoptions. This works well for some, but is not for everyone. I personally believe that God leads us to the child we are meant to adopt whether that be Korea, Russia, China, Columbia or the US. Also, some idiot said Katherine should give money to the family in Korea to let them keep the child there…what????

    Re: Go McCain/Palin – I agree with you!! The process here is insane…I don't understand it
