The newest addition to the Heigl-Kelly clan is a newborn girl adopted domestically, and she was welcomed into the family with open arms just in time for Mother’s Day. According to People, the actress, 33, and the singer-songwriter, 32, have chosen the name Adalaide Marie Hope for their new baby girl.

Big sister Naleigh is now 3 ½ and was adopted from South Korea in 2009. From the sounds of it, these two girls will soon be joined by at least a couple more siblings, since Heigl mentioned on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at the end of the last year that she and Kelly want three or four kids.

I think the name contrast between their two girls is fascinating, because Naleigh has such a modern feel (and is only one name), whereas Adalaide Marie Hope is a trio of classic names that never go out of style. I’m excited to see pictures of their new bundle of joy!

What do you think of their choice? And how soon do you think it will be before Heigl and Kelly welcome baby number three?
