Katherine Heigl has shared the first photos of her baby boy, Joshua Bishop, who was born just before Christmas.
In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, the actress also shared the very special moment she shared with her two daughters – who are adopted – when she revealed to them she was expecting.
@joshbkelley and I are beyond thrilled to finally share the arrival of our little man Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr born December 20th, weighing in at 7 pounds 15 ounces. We are all happy, healthy and beyond grateful! For more pics and the exclusive story check out @people magazine (out Friday) who I must profusely thank for helping us to announce our happy news in a beautiful, honest and loving way! I also want to give a big hearty loving shoutout to my bestie @cheyenneellis for the gorgeous photos including this one! And one more GIANT thank you to all of you for your wonderful words of support, love and all those beautiful well wishes! As always I am incredibly grateful to have such wonderful fans! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Heigl and her husband, Josh Kelley, waited until she was 12 weeks pregnant before sharing the news with eight-year-old Naleigh and Adalaide, 4.
“I was so relieved to get to share it,” the former Grey’s Anatomy star said, admitting that the news was a “little confusing” because of their unique family dynamic.
“[The girls were like], ‘I grew in your tummy?’ And I had to explain, ‘Well, you didn’t actually grow in my tummy, but your dad and I are your parents,’” she said.
