The new addition will be a little sibling to Heigl’s two adopted daughters.
Katherine Heigl is pregnant with her third child!
The actress and her husband of eight years, singer-songwriter Josh Kelley, are expecting a baby boy in January 2017, the couple confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE.
“The Kelley clan is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a third addition to our family,” they said.
Their son will join their two adopted daughters (and soon-to-be big sisters!), 4-year-old Adelaide Marie Hope and 7-year-old Naleigh Moon.

Heigl and Kelley adopted their first child, Naleigh, from South Korea in 2009. Adelaide, who was adopted domestically, joined the family in 2012.
