Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl has announced she is pregnant with a baby boy.
Katherine, who already has two adopted daughters with her husband Josh Kelley, said she was ‘thrilled’ with the news.
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.’
Katherine, who married singer Josh in 2007, has enjoyed a successful acting career with films such as 27 Dresses and Knocked Up.
In 2009 Kathryn and Josh adopted daughter Nancy from South Korea. They went on to adopt Adalaide Marie in 2012. The couple always planned to adopt before they had biological children.
‘This is an incredibly exciting time for us filled with hope, anticipation, and hormones,’ Katherine said in her statement. ‘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. xoxo, Katie and Josh.’
Katherine is due to give birth in January 2017. The 37-year-old star met Josh on the set of one of his music video’s ‘Only You’ and the pair became engaged in June 2006.
Katherine posted a sweet family snap on Sunday for Fathers Day on her Twitter account saying: ‘Happy Father’s Day @JoshBkelley! You are so loved and adored!!’
The news was first reported by In Touch magazine, with a source telling the tabloid, ‘She and Josh have been putting off having a baby for career reasons for years, but they felt like the timing was finally right.’
