Katherine Heigl is ready to become a mom. The Grey’s Anatomy star and her husband, Josh Kelley, are adopting a baby girl, the actress confirmed to Ellen DeGeneres.

“It is a little girl and she’ll be 10 months at the end this month,” Heigl said of the Korean-born special needs child.

“She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign.

“I realized just recently that I basically forfeited my birthday for the rest of my life.”
