Heigl announced last week that she would be adopting Nancy Leigh, Naleigh for short, from South Korea on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign," the Grey's Anatomy star said. "[Adoption has] been a big part of my life and my family. My sister is Korean and my parents adopted her back in the '70s and so I just always knew that this is something I wanted to do."
