Katherine Heigl adopts Korean girl

Toddler will be nicknamed Naleigh

Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley have completed their adoption of a baby girl from Korea.

Heigl spokeswoman Melissa Kates says the couple named the 10-month-old Nancy Leigh, after the actress's mother Nancy and her sister Margaret Leigh. The girl will go by the nickname Naleigh.

Kates says both parents and Naleigh are together and doing well. The couple is putting photos of their daughter up on Heigl's animal-rescue foundation website.

Heigl plays Dr. Izzie Stevens on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and is currently shooting the film "Life as We Know It."

She and Kelley, a singer-songwriter, have been married since 2007.
