Katherine Heigl Shares her Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss Plan

Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl is a veteran adopted new mom to a first born 7-month old and now she is blogging and sharing her journey to shed the 50 pounds she gained while pregnant.

“My best weight loss advice is to start every morning by saying out loud a positive mantra of your choice about your body. Mine is ‘I am easily, with good health, inspiration, grace and gratitude losing weight faster than I can even imagine with harm to none,’ ” the Doubt star said in her PEOPLE magazine blog.

“Then I say my gratefuls. Thanking my body for it’s perfect health, strength, limberness, vibrancy, youthfulness and beauty. Whether I always believe these things about myself and my body or not, I say them. By saying them out loud with love and gratitude I have found that I not only start to believe them, but my body exhibits what I say and believe.”

Beside her new baby Joshua Bishop with hubby Josh Kelly, the Knocked Up star has two daughters through adoption, but giving birth to son ntroduced her to the world of pregnancy — and its crazy changes to her body.

Heigl admitted that the 50-lb. weight gain left her with “moments of sheer panic.”

The baby weight dropped after delivery helped but not that much

“I had hoped to only gain 25-30 pounds like my mother during her pregnancies but found that just wasn’t possible for me,” she wrote. “Despite starting my gestation out on a pregnancy friendly meal plan and hiking my butt off 5 days a week my weight kept creeping up.”

Heigl continued, “At a certain point, probably around 4 months I gave up the struggle and tried instead to respect my body’s needs and trust my instincts.”

She said she is learning  to love her body as is.

And she won’t let it discourage her from growing her family through adoption or trying to get pregnant.

 

 

‘Doubt’ Star Katherine Heigl Welcomed Son, Joshua Bishop Kelley, Jr.

Congratulations to Doubt star Katherine Heigl and her musician husband Josh Kelley on the birth of their first son, Joshua Bishop Kelley, Jr.  on December 20, PEOPLE confirms. The baby was born three days before the couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on December 23rd.

Heigl and Kelley are parents to daughters, 8-year old Naleigh and 4-year old Adalaide, who the couple adopted.

Last June 2016, Heigl announced the news on her Instagram , noting that they were just about to adopt or foster another child if pregnancy was not an option.

“It was totally unexpected but thrilling nonetheless,” she noted on a photo of her sonogram.

“Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age,” Heigl shared, “I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us.

Because of the Holidays, we totally missed covering her baby shower but lucky for us, the photos are still up on her Instagram and her blog Those Heavenly Days. And you can see more on Daily Mail.

The Grey’s Anatomy alum shared that her mother let her plan her winter wonderland themed wedding. She pulled ideas from Pinterest and made sure the event was decorated with winter white bouquets with some single stem arrangements in a milk glass on the dinner tables. I “am an avid milk glass collector” the Knocked Up actress penned on her blog.

“I wanted the table settings to feel rustic and elegant like our ranch up in Utah so we included natural elements like rattan place mats, naturally shed deer antlers, pine cones and white gourds,” she wrote, adding, “I truly wish I could have these centerpieces on my dining table all year long!”

The dinner was farm to table style and the even included an open bar with holiday-inspired cocktails. Guest went home with Christmas sugar cookies with a baby theme decorations on them as parting gifts/favors.

The cake (featured above from her Instagram) was a simple white fondant cake with a rocking horse ornament on top.

Sounds like it was a delightful event.

Congrats to Grey’s Anatomy Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery on the birth of their third child recently, Pompeo’s rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.

The private duo waited two months to announced the birth of their daughter Sienna in 2014 but perhaps because they have their first son, she was elated to share the news of the birth of a son to the world.

Ellen revealed the baby’s gender and name on Instagram.

“❤️Eli Christopher❤️ Chris Ivery just fell a notch.. I’ve got a new guy,” she captioned a photo of Ivery with their son nestled on his chest on a bed.

Pompeo and Ivery have been married since 2007 and along with Sierra, they have another daughter named Stella who was born in 2009.

They never announced this pregnancy at all.

Though she gave birth to Stella, the actress used the help of a surrogate to welcome Sienna.

Back in 2014, Pompeo opened up about the surrogacy process, telling Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, “This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous.”

Ellen continued, “I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo. I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy, and they inseminated her. And then we held hands, and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out, and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”

Another Grey’s star from the past, Katherine Heigl is also expecting after adopting a couple of kids herself.

 

Another Grey’s Anatomy Actress is Expecting

Katherinie Heigl isn’t the only Grey’s Anatomy series actress to be expecting. 

Though Heigl has long since left the show, current star Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo Wilson on the long-time hit ABC TV show, and her actor boyfriend Matt Alan are too. 

Luddington posted a baby bump progression selfie on her Instagram page, one week after making an announcement on that account. 

The British star is also known for portraying another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Duchess Catherine of Cambridge, in Lifetime TV‘s movie William & Kate: The Movie.

This will be the first child for both.  Luddington’s upcoming arrival will be the first child for her and her boyfriend, actor played Kate Middleton in the Lifetime TV film

Expecting Katherine Heigl Glows at a Beverly Hills Event promoting Her New Show

heigl katherine

Glowing! That is the word that can best describe actress Katherine Heigl who looked stunning in white while attending the The Critics’ Association’s 2016 Summer Party Tour to promote her upcoming CBS legal drama Doubt

Wednesday’s event at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California was the first time the expecting mom debuted her baby bump since announcing that she was expecting her third child, after adopting her first two girls.

During a panel session at the event, the Grey’s Anatomy alum shared that her husband of 8-years Josh Kelly is excited that they will welcome a baby boy this January.

The couple’s daughters include now 7-year old Naleigh Mi-Eun and 4-year old Adalaid Marie Hope. 

“He’s just surrounded by women. It’s me, the two girls, my niece Madison lives with us in Utah and she’s a 14-year-old girl, and then my mom,” Heigl revealed.

And if we can focus on the outfit a bit, the dress matched perfectly with her clutch and nude stilettos.

I’m also so glad to see her shine again after getting blacklisted for speaking out on behalf of women who thought her first big screen hit Knocked Up was a bit stereotypical of pregnant women. (that’s another post for another day)

Grey’s Anatomy: The TV Cast With Most Adopted Kids

grey's cast

Of all the shows on television, we think the cast of Grey’s Anatomy has some of the most aware and generous parents who have opened up their hearts and homes to many children without parents or proper homes.  Several members of  Grey’s family are also wonderful about raising children of different background and parentage.

While we cannot say definitely if its cast and alums have adopted the most children, but we do know they’re up there in numbers.

For example, currently, we anxiously await the birth of Grey’s alum Katherine Heigl‘s first child. Meanwhile, she and her husband are parenting two beautiful adopted girls, Naleigh from South Korea (adopted in 2009) and Adalaide Marie Hope (adopted in 2012), a mixed-race child from a woman in Louisiana.

Heigl has an adopted sister, Meg, who was born in Korea.

 “Josh and I started talking about [adoption] before we were even engaged,”  US Weekly quotes the Knocked Up  star telling Scholastic Parent & Child back in February. “[M]y parents adopted [Meg] 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.”
True to form, Heigl’s soon-to-be-born son will have a similar experience of having older adopted siblings.
Not an adoptive parent, but her former Grey’s co-star Ellen Pompeo is also doing a wonderful job of raising her children of different race.

Pompeo is quoted recently stating that she surrounds her bi-racial daughters with images of empowered African American women.

Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery are parents to daughters Stella, born September 2009, and Sienna May, born October 2014 via surrogate.

“My daughters are black so it’s very important to me that they see a lot of images of beautiful, powerful, strong black women,” Ellen shares. “Every time there is a black woman on a magazine cover, whether it is Kerry Washington or whoever it is, I make sure that magazine is in my house and on my table. For me, that’s super important.”

It’s also important for the girls to see the Obamas n the spotlight, she relayed.

“I feel really fortunate that they are growing up in a time [in which] the first president my daughter knows is Barack Obama,” Ellen said. “That’s an incredible gift.”

Um doesn’t Chris look a little low key like President Barack Obama tho?

Show producer and writer Shonda Rhimes also has adopted several children. She is solo-parenting and raising two adopted daughters on her own, Harper, Emerson and Beckett (whom she welcomed via a gestational surrogate) ages 13, 3 and 2, respectively.

Bravo!

Renee Zellweger Sports a Baby Bump filming ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ in London

bridgetjones

Bridget Jones fans can prepare to see Renee Zellweger reprise her famous role in the third installment to the Jones comedic drama based on the popular book series by British author and columnist Helen Fielding.

In recently leaked photos, Zellweger sports a shaggy blue coat and reveals a faux bump underneath a striped top.  Snoops spotted Zellweger during filming Bridge Jones’s Baby at a Woolwich supermarket in London earlier this week.  The movie is based on Fielding’s 2013 book “Mad About a Boy” and her popular newspaper column.

[SPOILER ALERT]……….With Mark killed off in the book, we can expect Jones to be a mom of two and a widow. Girl can never catch a break, huh?  She and Darcy were engaged to marry at the end of part two: Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason.

And as we can see from the studio’s recent tweet, Jones has swapped out her diary for an iPad. Great plug for Apple though I’m sure it paid for the product placement it is indeed an iPad.

 

Colin Firth returns as Jones love interest Mark Darcy, and though Hugh Grant is not reprising his portrayal of Jones cheating ex, Daniel Cleaver, we do know that dreamy Patrick Dempsey from Grey’s Anatomy has joined the cast.

Details of the plot are being closely guarded, reports say.

The debuts next fall 2016.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ saved this breastfeeding mom’s life

When young breastfeeding mom, Sarit Fishbaine, was told the lumps in her breast were just probably milk collection and not to worry about, she didn’t immediately get a second opinion. 
She was only 34. She wasn’t concerned. It was only after she saw an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, where a patient had similar issue – breast feeding, lumpy breasts, on set breast cancer – that Sarit realized a second opinion was worth it. 
That action saved her life.
