Katherine Heigl keen on adopting another child

Washington: Katherine Heigl has revealed that she is keen to adopt another child with husband Josh Kelley.

The 33-year-old actress, who raises three-year-old adopted daughter Naleigh with husband Josh Kelley, explained that the couple had spoken about becoming parents before they even got engaged.

She insisted they would be keen to give home to a child before trying for biological kids.

“Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged. We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first. I’d like to adopt again,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Parent and Child magazine.

Heigl also said that while she loved daughter Naleigh from the moment she was put into her arms, she struck up an immediate bond with Josh, which was “hard” for Katherine.

“Anyone who doesn’t have experience with adoption wonders, ‘Does love for a child come through DNA?’ I knew it didn’t. They’re yours. You love them the moment they’re put into your arms. Josh had to learn that, but he was so gracious and accepting.

“Naleigh felt really comfortable with Josh and they bonded quickly. It was harder for me. It was a struggle for me because all I wanted to do was bond with her. But it takes time for a child to trust this new situation and to trust you,” she added.
