Heigl and her musician husband Josh Kelley reportedly began the adoption process for 10-month-old Nayleigh (who will be nicknamed "Leigh"), at least 6 months ago and will finally bring her home this week.
"She is thrilled," a source told RadarOnline. "She and Josh are so happy."
Heigl, whose sister Meg is adopted from Korea, told USA Today that adopting a child is something she's "always planned."
"I'm done with the whole idea of having my own children," Heigl said. "[It] doesn't seem like any fun. I don't think it's necessary to go through all of that."
How commendable -- helping a baby in need, and not having to gain and promptly lose baby weight as a bonus! Win-win!
