Is Katherine Heigl adopting another baby to ‘save her marriage’?

This week’s National Enquirer, which had the scoop that Katherine Heigl was adopting back before she announced it, claims that she’s about to adopt another baby, at her husband Josh’s insistence. Katherine and Josh adopted a baby from South Korea in September of 2009. Their daughter Naleigh is now two and Josh wants to give her a brother or sister, because he thinks a new addition to their family “could be the answer to their problems.” At least a bandaid baby is the husband’s idea for once, not that it makes a difference:

“They want Naleigh to have a little brother or sister soon,” a longtime family friend told the Enquirer.

Josh, 31 – who has a new country album, “Georgia Clay” – recently told an interviewer that Naleigh “needs a buddy.”

And the source divulged: “Josh has talked Katherine into adopting another child. He believes this could be the answer to their problems.”

In recent months, the couple’s storybook marriage has been battered by articles alleging Katherine’s insecurities over her faltering career and interference from their families.

As the Enquirer recently reported, Josh complained that Katherine’s mom Nancy was spending so much time around them, it was smothering their marriage and ruining their love live…

“Their marriage has definitely been very rocky,” said the friend. “He acknowledged that their relationship could use a boost – and he thinks another child will be the solution.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, April 25, 2011]

It’s a pretty dumb idea to add another child to an already troubled marriage, and it won’t do much to keep Katherine’s mom from meddling in her relationship. It will add a lot of love and wonder as kids always do but it can also make things more hectic and stressful. Katherine admitted on Letterman that she and Josh argue over really stupid sh*t about caring for Naleigh, like what diapers and wipes they should use. She also said that “I think I’m a little bit of a control freak.” Oh yeah, a new baby is just what they need. That will solve everything.

There are photos of Katherine out with her mom yet again yesterday (below), the mom who is said to be smothering her daughter and her husband. You know that lady is going to be around even more if she gets another grandkid.

    Don’t know about her marriage but someone needs to save her hair colour…

  2. sheri says:

    I know alot of people think she is beautiful. I can’t stand to hear her voice. She has the weirdest body…like if she ever got really fat, she would be one of those that when they stand, their knees are attached but their feet are 3 feet part.

  3. Marjalane says:

    Now I didn’t have a bunch of nannies or other house help, but if I remember correctly…(and that’s becoming increasingly difficult…) when we brought home baby#2, the stress, anxiety and lack of sleep, DOUBLED all the fun in our marriage! It took until both kids were 3-4 years old before things settled down a bit. I think the idea of a bandaid baby is laughable.

  4. Maritza says:

    You can tell Josh is a great dad and he loves kids, that to me means he is a great guy, Katherine is lucky to have him.

  5. Tanya says:

    She literally looks like a larger clone of her mother in that one pic… Creepy…

    And WTF is with that haircut, btw? I have nothing against short hair, as I’ve had it myself in the past. However, this looks like short hair that’s in that awkward grow out stage RIGHT before it gets mullety… Just dowdy, frumpy, and not appropriate for a young woman.

    LOL @DrM – The color sucks, too…

    Sorry, I’m feeling nit picky this morning.

    for a kid to look like their parents even if adopted isn’t a surprise. Edoardo Ponti looks like an exact male minature of his mother Sophia Loren or Ophelia Dahl looks like an exact female minature of her dad beloved childrens Author Roald [Charlie & The Chocolate Factor Mathilda & The BFG ect.} or Nell NEwman is a total mini me of her Mother Joanne Woodward not a bad thing as Joanne is a beautiful woman though in hollywood she was always more note for talent andwork ethic than looks. adopting another kid won’t save their marriage it was never going to last.

    Babies are nature’s relationship bandaid!

    Or not.

  8. Faye says:

    Horrid sunglasses. (Not the one where she’s with her husband, the one where she’s holding her cell phone.)

  9. lucy2 says:

    If they do adopt again, that’s great, but I hope it’s for the right reasons. I picture her being difficult to live with, but he had to have known that going in.

  10. clare says:

    That hair color and style is the most fug on her! Bleh!

  11. munchies says:

    i read the latest interview of her husband and you can tell he is just so in love with his family. i wish them best.

  12. Sol says:

    Why bother ?? she is never seen with her baby. A child needs her mother’s love and Heigl is only in love with herself.
    Im tired of seeing KH at the beach, having coffee, etc without her child.

  13. Ally says:

    Today in controlling-Hollywood-mother history, both Bette Davis and Jean Harlow were harassed by their stage mothers their whole lives.

  14. Franny says:

    man, I’ve missed seeing courtneys crazy, nonsensical comments. keep em coming girlfriend.

    I want all of KH’s sweaters.

  15. 4Real says:

    Now THATS a DOWDY SOCCER MOM look right there!

  16. curmudgeon says:

    The color of her hair is the same as mine when the ghetto box color I use is washing out.

  17. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @Franny.. right? Didnt know WTF she was saying.. (smh)

    Yeah, lets adopt another baby, make it miserable so that when he/she grows up, they can write a tell all book and spend the rest of their lives in therapy.

    Great plan.

  18. Rosi says:

    that spoiled brat would be absolutely nothing without her mother. i am not surprised if it comes out that the grandmother does all the work with the baby.

  19. Devon says:

    I’m all for women being close to their mothers, I’m very close to mine, but when it starts to interfere with your relationship with your spouse, you need to draw the line. You’d think her mother would try and stay out of their love lives, I know my mother stays out and gives our space. Except when she comes to visit then I’m all hers.

    KH has some serious issues with her hair and how to dress. She’s 2 steps away from looking like the soccer mom who thinks she’s hot shit. Uhhh, actually, I think she’s there. She reminds me of Jennifer Garner in that she probably thinks about her clothing WAY too much and comes off looking like crap. How can she seriously not look good in jeans & a blazer?

    It’s always so AMAZING to me when people think that a child should magically solve all of there problems for them. It’s one of, if not one of the most ridiculous, self serving notions that I have ever heard (“we can’t work out our issues with for ourselves or the kid that we already have so maybe if we add a new one, we can”?!) Fix your own sh*t and if you can’t, part ways and move on. Don’t put it on a baby!!

    Also, I knew Dame Heigl always wanted to adopt as part of her family (as do I), but does anyone else find it suspicious that they would adopt a 2nd time so soon after Naleigh since she said they would have a biological child after her? Idk…just a thought.

    In order to have some separation between Mommy, Katie needs to fire her as a manager. Look what happened to Brooke Sheilds. For years her mother was her momager and basically stifled her life and career. When she fired momager, she married Andre Agassi (not that that worked out but it bought her freedom to succeed in her current relationship) and a resurgent career (Grease on Broadway, etc.).

    Katie should do the same. It’s not like she’s doing well. She burned too many bridges in Hollywood for her to climb to A list.

    Her poor hubby. No they don’t need another child. They already have their “special” baby (so says Katie in that exclusive People mag article). By the way, she is not a “special” baby. She had a hole in her heart that was since corrected. I hated how Katie went blabbing around about how that child was a special needs baby like she had autism or was mentally retarded.

  22. Sue says:

    Her reps have already denied this story.

  23. jill says:

    her hair color and style are unfortunately aging. she looks like her mom’s barely younger sister.

  24. ctkat1 says:

    I think Katherine Heigl needs to break up with her mother professionally- in doing so, that will probably lessen her mother’s influence in her marriage and family life.

    Heigl needs a professional to step in and deal with her faltering career, because her mother has allowed it to crash and burn. Katherine is a bitchy pill to work with, and she needs a professional manager to reign her in and fix her image problems.

  25. ol cranky says:

    @As – I agree, I thought it was very odd that they chatted up that Naliegh had to have her PDA surgery (prior to them adopting her, no less) as if she was a “special needs” child and what a bid deal that she adopted a special needs child blah blah blah. Call me a cynic, ut I think Heigl may well want to adopt again to get press about how wonderful she is and repair the damage her less than pleasant disposition seems to have done to her public image/career.

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks like a 45-year old pseudo socialite who shops and goes to luncheons and other events to get on the society page.

    If you are having marriage problems, the LAST thing you need is the stress, lack of sleep and absence of grown-up time that a baby brings. This must be a BS story, surely no one is THAT stupid.
