Katherine Heigl Talks Adopting Adalaide with Jay Leno

Katherine Heigl waves while making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday (December 20) in Burbank, Calif.

The 34-year-old actress talked about the process of adopting her daughter Adalaide.

“This was fascinating because we started the adoption process again and we thought we were gonna adopt internationally. It’s a pretty long process. It can take years,” Katherine said (via Access Hollywood).

“And then we started exploring because we had heard that Korea had gotten very hard to adopt from, and China had a very, very long waiting list and I was like (taps wrist), any day now,” Katherine added. “And so we started exploring the idea of domestic adoption – just exploring – and then my lawyer called and said, ‘There’s a birth mother and she’s due in four weeks and she’s all yours if you want her.’”

Also pictured: Katherine heading to a family Christmas party that afternoon in Los Feliz, Calif.

FYI: Katherine is wearing a Randi Rham dress, Kimberly McDonald earrings, Vram at Gray Gallery bangles and ring, and Rene Caovilla shoes.

    @ Biatch

    First it is none of our business whether she can or cannot have kids. Secondly I don’t care for Katherine H, but applaud and admire her for adopting kids–especially her first daughter who was special needs, i.e. needed a heart operation. Whether I care for her is immaterial–what is material is that she opened her heart to kids no one wanted.

    @Dabu: I completely agree with you. I don’t really care for her work, but that atitude with someone else is so much what we need on this planet!!!
    By the way, what an amazing dress?????? Stunning!

  • Alaia

    What is she even promoting? Her child?

  • siggi

    why does she always try to look older than she is.. remember 34 not 44

  • Rocky

    @Dabu:

    I LOVE YOU! You said everything I wanted to say. THANK YOU!

  • Rocky

    @B:

    Love the dress as well.

  • katie

    I love her! I really hope she makes more movies. I know she and her mom like to produce her movies, but she needs to work with good directors on other people’s movies too. Hopefully she has learned from her mistakes.

    She’s lovely and genuine but unfortunately a publicist’s nightmare. Check out her comment re ‘Knocked Up’ and Greys Anatomy. She’s also just average as an actor. However, very likeable and absolutely gorgeous.
