The name of Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley’s newly adopted baby girl has been revealed! The couple, whose first daughter is name Naleigh, once again stuck to honoring family with their newborn’s moniker.
Katherine Heigl has explained her baby girl’s name to Hello! magazine, saying, “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.”
Naleigh, now a big sister who goes by her mash-up nickname, was dubbed Nancy Leigh after the star’s mother and sister.
Speaking of receiving the call that baby Adalaide had been born Katherine Heigl shared, “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.”
