Katherine Heigl ’Never Saw’ Her Daughter While Working on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ 

#Katherine #Heigl #Daughter #Working #Greys #Anatomy

A difficult time. Katherine Heigl opened up about the difficulties she faced as a mother while working on Grey’s Anatomy — and feeling detached from daughter Naleigh after so much time apart. 

“I never saw that baby. I was at work with three triplets who were playing my goddaughter and I spent more time with them than I did with my new daughter and she bonded with my husband,” Heigl, 44, said during the Monday, November 28, episode of The View. “So, I was always afraid that I had missed that opportunity to really bond with her and that she didn’t love me.”

The Firefly Lane actress tied the knot with husband Josh Kelley in 2007. Two years later, Us Weekly confirmed that the pair adopted baby Naleigh from South Korea. The couple shared photos of their then-10-month-old later that month. 

Less than a year after bringing their little one home, however, Heigl was “on a plane” and back to “work in Atlanta” for the ABC series. 

“At the time, becoming a new mother, I was just like, ‘I got it. I got it. I can handle this,’” she explained. “You know, they’ve told us we can have it all. We can have careers and have families and it’s all gonna be great. It’s all gonna work out.”

Despite the challenges of being a working mom, the Life as We Know It star hinted at her desire to expand her family during a June 2010 interview with Gala magazine. “We would love to have a second child, adopted or biological,” the Golden Globe nominee said at the time. “We’re not ruling it out.”

Two years later, Heigl’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly that the parents had adopted a second daughter named Adalaide. The couple’s third child, son Joshua, arrived in December 2016. 

Tthe Washington D.C. native has been candid about the struggles she faced on Grey’s Anatomy over the years. Heigl portrayed doctor Izzie Stevens on the medical drama for over 100 episodes from 2005 to 2010, when she exited halfway through season six. Her abrupt departure came after a public feud with creator Shonda Rhimes.

“There was a resolution to Izzie’s story. We had planned to have her come back for an episode to really properly tie up Izzie and Alex (Justin Chambers),” Krista Vernoff, who worked on seasons 1-7 of the medical drama before returning as the showrunner for season 14, told the Los Angeles Times in November 2020. “And I wrote that episode, and it was beautiful. The day before it was supposed to start prepping or shooting, I can’t remember, we got a call that Katie wasn’t coming. Just wasn’t coming. Wasn’t going to do it. It became my job to stay up all night for multiple nights and reimagine a script that didn’t include Izzie.”

Vernoff went on to say that while fans “screamed” at the writers “for years and years” about Heigl’s departure, the show always had plans to wrap up Izzie’s story. “That’s the behind-the-scenes story. That’s what happened. I’m not saying that to bash Katie. I don’t know what was happening in her life,” she explained.

Sources close to Heigl, however, told Us at the time that Vernoff was “mistaken” when it came to the actress’ exit from the series. “Katherine was back in L.A. after parental leave (when she adopted her Adalaide) waiting to be called to set,” the insider shared.

Heigl, for her part, told Access in 2014 that she hopes to “someday” mend the fences between her and 52-year-old Rhimes. In January 2021, the Knocked Up star even told the Washington Post that returning as Izzie before the long-running series ends would be “completely dependent upon the team over there, how they feel about it, and the story.”

She added, “Never say never.”

Actress Kate Walsh has revealed how she met her now fiancé, WA farmer Andrew Nixon.

The Grey’s Anatomy star confirmed that their ‘meet cute’ did in fact take place on a trip to Antarctica in early 2020, as rumoured, during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show .

“We met, as one does, on a Nat Geo expedition to Antarctica,” Walsh said, before joking to the studio audience “there’s an app for it guys”.

Clarkson in disbelief thought the actress was being sarcastic.

“No, I did. We were on a ship to the Antarctic and that’s how I met him,” Walsh clarified.

“What? This is like a movie,” Clarkson replied.

“Who knew,” Walsh added of the fateful trip.

The Emily in Paris actress told the singer-turned-talk show host that due to the climate crisis she wanted to see both the Arctic and Antarctica.

Having ticked off the North Pole, she went to explore the South Pole on a trip that changed her life.

“It was incredible. It was an incredible trip and then bonus, you know, found the love of my life,” Walsh said.

“Saw the penguins, check. Ice, check. Whales, check. Man, check,” she joked.

“It’s a pretty good trip I think,” Clarkson replied.

Following the Antarctica trip in February 2020, Walsh moved to Perth during the COVID-19 lockdowns the following month.

That move looks to become more permanent with the couple set to tie the knot.

The couple secretly got engaged last year, with the actress accidentally outing their marriage plans during an Instagram Live in October.

Talking about their new life in Perth, the Grey’s Anatomy star told Clarkson about how she’s already used to shark alarms at the beach and driving on the other side of the road.

Although she admitted when she gets tired or stressed “it’s like some old operating system clicks in” and she finds herself forgetting to drive on the correct side.

Walsh also told a story about being so afraid of hitting a kangaroo during a two hour drive to Nixon’s farm outside Perth, she spent the whole car trip honking as a warning system for the animals.

The actress and entrepreneur revealed her “new homeland” of Australia has also inspired one of the latest candles in her Boyfriend Perfume range, called Down Under.

While another is cheekily named Morning W’oud.

“It is all double entendre,” Walsh said of the range inspired by an ex-boyfriend.

Walsh and Nixon made their red carpet debut together at the Emily in Paris Season 3 premiere last December.

Nixon, who has been a farmer for more than 30 years, sometimes features on Walsh’s Instagram Stories, though Walsh largely keeps his presence in her life under wraps and doesn’t share photos of him to her permanent feed.

Walsh has been married once before, tying the knot with producer Alex Young back in September 2007.

The couple split the following year before finalising their divorce in February 2010.

Salma Hayek can always be counted on for a standout fashion moment. But she outdid even herself as she arrived for the South Beach premiere of Magic Mike’s Last Dance wearing a daring ensemble! The Eternals star, 56, arrived rocking a completely see through fishnet black dress, embellished with colorful floral appliques and paired with a skimpy pair of bikini bottoms and matching bra. The mom of one pulled her hair into a dramatic high ponytail and accessorized with a green handbag, layered necklaces, platform heels, and classic hoop earrings. Her makeup glam was perfection in neutral tones.

Salma opened up about the role back in December. “It’s very physically challenging,” she told ET of an already famous steamy lap dance scene. “My goodness. You just wait to see. It’s complicated.” She also hilariously dished on what it was like to show up to work on the set. “I play a strong woman,” she told the outlet of her character, Maxandra Mendoza. “You know what was my day going into the office? I would just sit around and watch, like, 12 men, semi-naked dancing and doing pirouettes. And I got to boss them around.”

As for her iconic sense of red-carpet style, she spoke about how it can “reinvent” in a 2015 interview. “I think the fun thing about fashion is that it’s a place where you can exercise your own creativity and you can make a reinvention of yourself every day,” she told Glamour’s UK edition at the time. And what’s the flip side of that?

“I think the bad part of fashion is when instead of being an exploration of your own identity, you try to copy everyone else then it’s not healthy,” she added. “It’s not satisfying.” She mixes things up, she said, with “color.”

“I love to add color,” she told the outlet. “I like to do a lot of basic colors like black or beige and then have an accessory that has color. Like a great scarf. I have this Alexander McQueen scarf from the Damien Hurst collection. When I wear it, even if my other clothes are really simple, it’s just something. Or even a colorful hat or a great pair of boots and a bag if it’s colorful.”

Hilton previously told People that she and Reum began the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process a few months into the COVID-19 pandemic. She said the timing was right because “I’m on a plane 250 days out of the year,” so they were able to get the eggs “stocked and ready.”

Reum reportedly has one other child, who is grade-school age, from a previous relationship.

Last year Hilton said she wants “two or three” kids of her own in the future.
