(Newser) Grey's Anatomy star and negative-publicity magnet Katherine Heigl is adopting a special-needs Korean baby, RadarOnline reports. The baby's name is Naleigh, and she's 10 months old. The adoption has been in the works for months, and Heigl, whose sister Meg was also adopted from Korea, and hubby Josh Kelley are "so happy," an insider said. In 2007, Heigl told USA Today she's "always planned" to adopt, because having your own kids "doesn't seem like any fun," she said.
