Katherine Heigl shows off 8-month-old daughter Adalaide Hope at LAX: so cute!

I thought Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley adopted their second daughter in 2011, but no, it happened earlier this year. Back in April 2012, Josh and Katherine announced that they had adopted their second daughter Adalaide Hope. At first we didn’t really know anything other than the name (and that only came out a few weeks later), and Katherine and Josh haven’t been pushing baby photo ops for Adalaide either. They didn’t at first with their first daughter Naleigh either – they adopted Naleigh from South Korea in 2009, and it took at least a year before we started seeing Naliegh regularly (and even then, not so much).

Well, now we finally have clear, closeup photos of Adalaide! Other sites have had clear pics of her in the past few months too, so I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe this is the first time Heigl was like, “Yes, everyone, photograph my baby!” Katherine was traveling with her youngest daughter yesterday, and I have to say… I’m kind of surprised by how small Adalaide is! When Katherine and Josh adopted Naleigh, she was already 10 months old, and I kind of thought there was a possibility that they adopted another older baby, but no. I’m guessing they probably adopted Adalaide when she was only a few months old at most. The Mail identifies Adalaide as “eight months old” right now… meaning she was born in late March? Something like that. Reports are mixed as to where Adalaide comes from, but most American sites (like Us Weekly) say Katherine adopted Adalaide from Louisiana. In any case, she’s adorable! Her eyes are so expressive.

    what a cute little girl..

    am I the only one who isn’t fond of Katherine’s hair? I feel like I just stepped into the 70′s..

    They did a photo shoot when they first brought her home and she was a newborn, which points to a domestic adoption.

    Not a Heigl fan, but I like that she and her husband adopt.

    Adalaide is sooo adorable. Thanks for the pictures! She was definitely adopted as a newborn. It doesn’t take much effort to do your research guys! I did a quick search on her official site http://www.kheigl.com/2012/05/28/adalaide-marie-hope-kelley/ you can see her there. Marie – really? It looks so much better to me than it did when it was shorter. I love it. I think her hairs looks fantastic and she is glowing as a mom!

      Yes I read an interview with KH where she said newborn as well. And expressed what a different experience it was as her first was not a newborn, so while this was her second child it was a totally new experience.
      I personally find KH difficult to like, but I have no explanation as to why. She seems bitchy? yet I have no proof.

    Cute baby, but I will never understand why Heigl dresses and styles herself like a 70s-era grandma. She may be annoying, but she’s still very pretty, and could look SO much better than she does.

  6. Gracie says:

    Omg she looks like me when I was a baby, except I was born with a curly fro, lol. She’s adorable though, one of the cutest celeb babies.

    I know she gets a lot of flack for being type A, maybe a bit of a bitch, but I love her so much (even though she destroyed my hopes of an awesome series of Stephanie Plum movies). She seems to love being a mother and the fact that she adopts warms my heart even more!

    Wait. She wore flat footware while carrying
    her daughter, through a airport. Oh noes!!!! Did she not get the memo ;) .

  9. Effy says:

    what a cutie!
    i will always be a fun of Heigl.

    I am so happy for anyone who has a baby. It is the most wonderful thing! I support people who don’t want children.

    For me, being with my children when they were young was the greatest time of my life. I am so grateful for those days and for them now.

    I pray for those who want children but haven’t been able to conceive or adopt. I pray their own prayers will be answered.

  11. Rachel says:

    Honestly, I’ve never seen anyone so happy to be at the airport…

  12. I Choose Me says:

    Don’t like her but I don’t have to like her to admit that she looks like a great mom. That little girl is adorable.

    It’s pics like these that almost make me wanna change my child free stance.

  13. KellyinSeattle says:

    Her hair sucks, but otherwise she looks healthy and happy with her little girl…adorable.

  14. Joanna says:

    i like her hair. that baby is SO cute!

  15. Violet says:

    I think Katherine needs a new stylist — the 1970s look isn’t particularly flattering and must take a lot of work.

    But oh, her little daughter is so adorable! What a cutiepie.

  16. citygirlsf says:

    Chubby baby cheeks…there’s nothing in the world more irresistible.

  17. YO says:

    Cute baby, she kind of looks like a boy.

  18. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Very cool that KH not only adopts but her first child is special-needs.

    please, who is Katherine smiling at in these photos?
