Katherine Heigl on daugther and Jungle Book connection
HollywoodNews.com: Katherine Heigl posed with her gorgeous adopted baby daughter Naleigh for the cover of W magazine’s ‘The Family Issue.’
Katherine says she adopted Naleigh, who was born in Korea with a congenital heart problem that was corrected through surgery, just ‘three or four days’ before she starting filming ‘Life As We Know It.’
“I was about to play a woman who inherits a baby, and I was experiencing the exact same thing,” she said. Inside the magazine she also poses with more of her family, including mom Nancy and sister Meg.
“My sister is Korean,” Katherine said. “I hope one day she and Naleigh will be able to talk about what it’s like to be adopted.”
The actress says there was ‘no way in hell’ she was going to get rid of her six dogs before Naleigh arrived – and is happy she didn’t. “Naleigh loves them,” she said. “Sometimes it reminds me of The Jungle Book. I’m like, ‘Oh my God – she’s being raised by animals!’.”
