Katherine Heigl covers the November Redbook, and in the interview she talks about her husband, Josh Kelley and her daughter, Naleigh.
On adopting her daughter, Naleigh:
"When she was finally in my arms, I was so relieved...now I got to hold her and smell her and know her. We still talk about having biological children as well--I'm not ruling anything out . . . Adoption has been a part of my life and a part of my family, so it was how I wanted to start. It felt natural and right to me."
On her husband, Josh Kelley:
"He's a great dad. I didn't expect it: He's such a guy . . .I adore him, I can't imagine being with another man, but he can be very self-absorbed. Not in an egomaniacal way, just kind of in his own head and unfocused on anything other than his own stuff. So I was really surprised by how on top of it and how connected he is."
On balancing career and motherhood:
"Most of Life As We Know It is a complete blur. I had just become a mom. I still don't necessarily always know what I am doing, and I certainly didn't then . . .I was all over the place. I was really trying too hard. I was completely bonkers." "If I spread myself too thin, I'm not a good actor, I'm not a good mother, and I'm just really high-strung--and everybody hates me."
