Katherine Heigl Welcomes Her Third Child With a Sweet Family Name

Katherine Heigl baby name
Looks like it's a party of five for this actress. Former Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl and her husband, Josh Kelley, welcomed their third child last month. The 38-year-old actress and her hubby gave their little guy a sweet family name that's classic and cool. 

Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr. was born on December 20 and joins big sisters Naleigh, 8, and Adalaide, 4, who were adopted. This isn't the first time the star has chosen to pay tribute to her family when selecting a child's name. Daughter Naleigh was named for Heigl's mom, Nancy, and Heigl's sister, Margaret, whose middle name is Leigh. Adalaide is named after Heigl's great-grandmother. So, it's lovely to see that they're keeping this sweet tradition alive!

According to Baby Name Wizard, this popular boy's name is derived from Hebrew and originates with Moses's successor, who led the children of Israel into the Promised Land.

Making this delivery extra special is that the couple celebrated 10 years of marriage on December 23. What better way to mark the milestone than with a new family member?

The couple shared their excitement about this pregnancy, Heigl's first, on the actress's blog, Those Heavenly Days. Posting photos of her growing bump and describing her cravings, Heigl noted that her pregnancy was "totally unexpected but thrilling nonetheless." She added that she and Kelley had been wanting to expand their family either through "adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible." 

She even detailed her beautiful mountain-themed baby shower, thrown by her mom, which looked completely Pinterest-worthy. 

Heigl announced her pregnancy in late June and added that her daughters were "over the moon" about the news. It was no doubt a long wait for the adorable duo. But, fortunately, dad Josh -- a musician -- had some tricks up his sleeve to keep everyone entertained.

Check out the sweet way the growing family kept busy waiting for this new addition to arrive, https://www.instagram.com/p/BO03fnyg4o1/. 

We wish this couple all the best and hope pics of Josh Jr. will appear on Heigl's blog or Instagram soon!

Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
