Katherine Heigl

The Grey’s Anatomy star and her husband, musician John Kelley, are adopting a baby girl from Korea. Heigl made the announcement on an episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show, which is scheduled to air this Friday.

Heigl’s soon-to-be daughter is from Korea, and the couple plans to name her Naleigh, in honor of Heigl’s mother and sister (Naleigh is a combination of the two names Nancy and Leigh). Naleigh, who will be a year old on Nov. 23, is a special-needs baby; according to Heigl, that’s why the adoption process is moving quickly.

“They wanted to get her to us as quickly as possible,” Heigl is quoted as saying in a TV GUIDE article.

If rumors are true, Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham (the couple wed August 1st) are preparing to welcome a fourth baby!

No official confirmation has been made, but Durham was recently spotted at The Grove in LA sporting what appeared to be a baby bump. Durham and Wahlberg already have three children — Ella Rae (6), Michael (3) and Brendan Joseph (11.5 months) — but have made no secret about their desire for a large family.

Durham, a model, spends most of her time focusing on family. Wahlberg, who is the executive producer of the HBO show Entourage, is scheduled to appear in this winter’s The Lovely Bones.

And Baby Makes 19!

The Duggar family, who star in the TLC show 18 Kids and Counting, just keeps getting bigger! The family recently announced that mom Michelle, 42, is pregnant with baby #19.

Yes, you read that right, 19!

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who make their home in Tonitown, Arkansas, were anticipating the arrival of their first grandchild.  But surprises were in store, as the couple learned that granddaughter, Mackynzie, who’s expected to arrive October 18, will have an aunt or uncle arrive about five months after her, on March 18, 2010!

“I’m just thankful,” Michelle wrote on her TLC blog. “I don’t take this experience for granted, ever. I cherish that I have the time and ability to play with my children and be active for them.”

The family has already created a list of boys and girls names that start with the letter J to make sure the newest addition fits in with the rest of the family:

Josh, 21 (who with wife Anna is expecting Mackynzie)

Jana and John-David, 19 (and twins)

Jill, 18

Jessa, 16

Jinger, 15

Joseph, 14

Josiah, 13

Joy-Anna, 11

Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10 (more twins!)

Jason, 9

James, 8

Justin, 6

Jackson, 5

Johanna, 3

Jennifer, 2

Jordyn-Grace, 8 months

What “J” name would you recommend for Duggar baby #19?
