Katherine Heigl Struggled To Name Her Baby Boy Joshua Jr.!

Katherine Heigl has revealed that she had a tough time naming her newborn son, Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr.!

While promoting her latest film Unforgettable on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (April 18), the 38-year-old actress admitted she was hesitant to name him after her hubby Josh Kelley.

“I couldn’t come up with a name for ages. I don’t know why, I just struggled with it,” Katherine told Jimmy. “It’s a big decision and you don’t want to fail this child with the wrong name.”

“I think Joshua is a beautiful name. And one night I sort of approached him with it and said, ‘What do you think about a junior?’ And he in the past said that he hated that idea and he could never be that guy, but I couldn’t — I wasn’t finding something that I was responding to,” Katherine continued. “And he was like, ‘Aw, I love that. That would mean a lot to me.’ And I was like, ‘Well, maybe had I known that nine months ago I would have had a name sooner!’”

Katherine and Josh welcomed their third child on December 20.
