Actress Katherine Heigl and her husband struggled to conceive, which led them to adopt their beautiful daughters, Nancy, now 9 and Adelaide, now 6. Then, in 2016, they received some exciting news—they were expecting a baby boy! During her entire pregnancy, Katherine kept fans updated, blogging on her website, Those Heavenly Days. “The whole pregnancy thing is new to me but the thrill of having a baby is not,” she wrote. “We’ve known for a while that we wanted to add to our family and frankly didn’t really care how we chose to do that. We were considering adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible. Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age, I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us. Turns out, it was very much in the cards!”
