London: Hollywood actress Katherine Heigl says her husband Josh Kelly is spectacular as a father to the couple`s 17-month-old adopted daughter Naleigh.

Heigl, best known for her roles in romantic comedies like `27 Dresses` and the `Ugly Truth, adopted Naleigh last year and the actress is completely in awe of how fantastic her husband is with their little girl, Contactmusic reported.

"He`s spectacular. I couldn`t have even imagined a better father for her. She`s the luckiest little kid," said Heigl, who starred in `My Father the Hero`.

"We call him Disneyland Dad because as soon as he comes in, it`s fun and happiness and rides around the room on his shoulders. He`s attentive and involved. I never for a minute would question leaving her," she said.

Since becoming a mother seven months ago, Heigl, who recently quit her role on US TV show `Grey`s Anatomy` to focus on her family, has become more in tune with her emotions as all she wants to do is protect her daughter.
