Katherine Heigl - Katherine Heigl And Josh Kelley Unveil New Baby

Katherine Heigl and her singer husband Josh Kelley have shown off their newborn daughter for a magazine photoshoot and revealed she is named Adalaide, after the actress' great-grandmother.
The star couple confirmed last month (Apr12) they had adopted a baby girl, three years after taking in daughter Naleigh from South Korea when she was 10 months old.
And the proud parents wasted no time in unveiling their new addition to the world, posing for a series of touching family photos in a spread for the U.K.'s Hello! magazine.
Heigl says she and Kelley waited anxiously for news of Adalaide's birth before jetting off to a secret location in the U.S. to collect her.
The Knocked Up star tells the publication, "We knew an approximate date of the delivery but we all know how unpredictable these things can be. So Josh and I were bouncing off the walls with excitement and anticipation just waiting for the call. It came late morning during the week and we were both home and on the phone together.
"Our first reaction was relief that all had gone well and that the baby was healthy, and then it was a whirlwind of preparing to leave and making sure we had everything we needed to welcome her home... It was late at night when Josh and I arrived at where she was being cared for. I walked in the house, threw down my bag and opened my arms so I could hold her.
"She was so tiny and delicate, and that 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."
Heigl says the couple began planning for another child in October (11) and she wept when she first set eyes on Adalaide, adding, "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 (a) lot of giddiness and joy."
Explaining the origins of their new daughter's name, Heigl says, "Her full name is Adalaide Marie Hope Kelley - Adalaide because of my great-grandmother, Marie after my middle name, and Hope because that is what the process became."
