<p><span></span><strong>Katherine Heigl</strong> is one of TV's biggest names, but the <em>Grey's Anatomy</em> star was noticeably absent from this year's Emmy Awards. Of course, she had a great excuse. Just days earlier, Katherine and her hubby, musician <strong>Josh Kelley</strong>, welcomed home their first bundle of joy: Nancy Leigh, a 10-month-old baby girl they've nicknamed Naleigh.</p>
On the red carpet at the Emmys, Grey's co-star Chandra Wilson said Katherine and Josh were elated about the new addition to their family. "They're so in love," Chandra told Life & Style. "They're over the moon."
Chandra also told Life & Style that Naleigh arrived from South Korea earlier than expected because she's a special-needs baby. And while Katherine hasn't shared the exact details of her daughter's medical condition yet, Chandra said Naleigh's delicate status expedited the adoption process. "They want to make sure these babies are taken care of," Chandra said.
