Katherine Heigl & Josh Kelley Reveal Daughter’s Name

Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl, 33, and Josh Kelley, 32, recently adopted a second daughter, and now they’re sharing her name.

Katie and Josh’s latest addition — a newborn girl adopted domestically — is named Adalaide Marie Hope, PEOPLE reports. Baby Adalaide joins big sister Naleigh, 3½, whom they adopted from South Korea in 2009.

The Heigl-Kelleys were seen enjoying Mother’s Day in Los Angeles, Calif.

“HAPPY MOTHERS DAY !!!! Hope you dudes out there take care of your ladies. No skimping…,” Josh tweeted, before sharing a photo of “the breakfast I made the mother of my children this morning.”

Congratulations again to the happy family!

    Why does he look so in love while she looks like a hostage?! I wonder if he will write a song for Adelaide like he did for Naleigh. I hope so! (If you guys haven’t heard it, look up Josh’s song Naleigh Moon. It’s AMAZING.)

    I thought Naleigh was named after her Mom Nancey and her sister, but her sister’s name is Meg. Can someone remind me??

    • AJ

      Her sister’s name is Margaret (Meg) Leigh.

    • Mags

      Got this from the Daily Mail: ‘Naleigh is a hybrid tribute to Heigl’s mother Nancy and sister Margaret Leigh.’

    • Louisa

      The -Leigh-part of Naleigh’s name is after Meg’s middle name.
      Meg’s full name is Margaret Leigh – Meg being short for Margaret.

      Her sister is Margaret Leigh. Naleigh is Nancy + Leigh.

    Adalaide is named after Heigl’s great grandmother. Marie is Heigl’s middle name and Hope for obvious reasons. There is a huge feature with pics in Hello! Baby is adorable.
