Katherine Marie Heigl (born November 24, 1978 in West End, Washington, D.C.) is an American actress, film producer and former fashion model.
She played Izzie Stevens on ABC's medical drama Grey's Anatomy from 2005 to 2010, a role for which she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2007. She has also starred in films, such as Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth, Killers, Life As We Know It and New Year's Eve.
As of 2014, she plays the main character in television series State Of Affairs. Heigl started her career as a child model with Wilhelmina Models before turning her attention to acting. She made her debut in the coming-of-age film That Night in 1992.
Heigl co-starred as Isabel Evans in the television series Roswell and films, such as My Father the Hero before landing her break-out role in Grey's Anatomy. She has established herself as a cover model appearing on numerous publications including Maxim, Vanity Fair and Cosmopolitan.
Heigl is married to singer Josh Kelley, with whom she has two adopted daughters. In June 2006, Heigl became engaged to singer Josh Kelley, whom she had met a year earlier on the set of his music video for "Only You". They chose not to live together before they were married, with Heigl later explaining, "I think I just wanted to save something for the actual marriage... I wanted there to be something to make the actual marriage different than the dating or the courtship."
They were married on December 23, 2007, in Park City, Utah. In September 2009, the couple adopted a daughter, Nancy Leigh "Naleigh" Mi-Eun Kelley, from South Korea, the birthplace of Heigl's adoptive sister. Naleigh, whom they named after Heigl's mother and sister, was born with a heart defect and underwent open heart surgery before leaving Korea. In April 2012, Kelley and Heigl adopted a second daughter, Adalaide Marie Hope Kelley, from the U.S. Heigl's brother-in-law is singer Charles Kelley of the country music trio Lady Antebellum.
