Heigl's hubby pays emotional tribute to adopted daughter

Katherine Heigl's husband thinks their adopted baby is "awesome".

Musician Josh Kelley gushed about Nancy Leigh - a 10-month-old Korean girl with special needs he and Heigl adopted earlier this month - during a concert on Ohio on Friday night.

On the verge of tears, Josh shouted: "We adopted a baby from Korea, me and my girl, and she's awesome, dude! This girl is the bomb!"

Earlier in the week, Josh sang a song he wrote about the baby - nicknamed 'Naleigh' - at a performance at Miami University.

It included the lines, "Just to see you in mommy's arms is all I need."

Katherine, 30, was "thrilled" to welcome Nancy into her home, revealing she has wanted to adopt a Korean baby since she was a child.

She said: "It's been a big part of my life and my family. My sister is Korean and my parents adopted her back in the 70s and so I just always knew that this is something I wanted to do.

"I just wanted to make sure that I was marrying a guy who understands that this was going to have to happen. Not everybody is down with that, not everybody thinks that."
