Katherine Heigl has announced that she is pregnant with a baby boy.  The 27 Dresses star already has two adopted daughters with her husband Josh Kelley, who she wed in 2007. In a statement, she wrote: ‘The Kelley clan is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a third addition to our family. ‘Naleigh and Adelaide could not be more excited to welcome their new sibling into the fold and Josh and I are overflowing with joy and gratitude.’

And she continued: ‘This is an incredibly exciting time for us filled with hope, anticipation, and hormones. Well, only I’m filled with hormones, but everyone in the family gets to enjoy them.’ ‘We couldn’t be more excited to be able to finally share this news with our fans and are looking forward to continuing to share the journey with you all.

The new arrival – who is due in January 2017 – will join big sisters Adelaide, four, and Naleigh, seven. Katherine’s own sister Margaret was adopted from Korea, and the actress always planned to adopt before having any biological children.
