Our semester started a couple weeks ago so it’s been crazy lately. However, this crazy story also merits some attention:
Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley have adopted a baby.
Ten-month-old baby Nancy Leigh, from South Korea, was reportedly named after Heigl’s mother Nancy and her sister Margaret Leigh.
She will be nicknamed Naleigh.
Heigl plays Dr Izzie Stevens on Grey’s Anatomy. Kelley is a singer-songwriter.
What this short article does not tell you is, as Harlow’s Monkey notes:
As others have noted, it appears the couple received special considerations, since they have not been married long enough (3 years) to adopt according to Korean regulations. Especially since she reportedly began the adoption inquiry a year ago after being married only one year. Heigl says the adoption was expedited because the baby has special needs.
So they rush-ordered their baby.
In another article, Heigl reportedly said, “‘I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children … [It] doesn’t seem like any fun. I don’t think it’s necessary to go through all of that.'”
Translation: “So let’s put the burden on birth mothers, and I can reap the benefits.”
