The Heigl-Kelley clan is growing by one! It's just been confirmed that Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley have adopted a baby, Just Jared reports. The couple, who wed in 2007, adopted their first child, Naleigh, from South Korea back in 2009.

So, why adopt? To paraphrase Heigl... why not?

The 33-year-old actress explained, "There's nothing about it that makes it any less meaningful of a relationship in my mind. I don't think it's for everybody, and I don't think everybody should adopt," she added. "I'm not some crazy idealist. It's not about the cause for me. But I do think no one should ever rule it out."

Heigl herself has a sister who is Korean, and this may have influenced her decisions about how to expand her own family.

In February, Heigl spoke to Scholastic Parent & Child, explaining, "Josh and I started talking about [adoption] before we were even engaged. My sister Meg is Korean, and my parents adopted her three years before I was born. I wanted my own family to resemble the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea."

No word yet on where baby no. 2 is from (or any other details for that matter), but we send our best wishes to the happy family just the same.
