Katherine Heigl Shares Sweet Montage of Daughter Adalaide in Celebration of Her 10th Birthday

Katherine Heigl is paying tribute to her little “peanut” in the best way possible on social media.

On Monday, the Firefly Lane star shared a touching video montage on Instagram to celebrate her daughter Adalaide’s tenth birthday. The clip featured rare footage of her childhood before cutting to current shots of Adalaide.

Heigl wrote in the caption, “My beautiful, fiery, witty girl turns 10 today. Ten years ago today Adalaide made her way into the world and into our arms. She was the smallest baby I had ever seen. Weighing in at just 4 pounds 11 ounces. I could place her in the palm of my hand and her little legs would only reach an inch past my wrist. I started calling her peanut after that. My beautiful, delicious, observant peanut.”

She even referred to the moment Adalaide started to crawl, noting that she would scoot across the floor. “Little legs straight out in front of her. Arms paddling the floor,” she continued. “Faster then you can imagine! From room to room. Josh would joke that we should attach a swiffer to her butt so she could scoot and clean at the same time. Then one day she just stood up and ran. Not walked…ran.”

The 27 Dresses alum ended the post by saying, “Happy Birthday my beautiful Adalaide. I match your boundless love with my own…forever and ever.”

Back in 2012, the former Grey’s Anatomy actress adopted Adalaide from Louisiana. Heigl and her husband, Josh Kelley, also share a 5-year-old son named Joshua Bishop and a 13-year-old daughter named Naleigh Mi-Eun, whom they adopted from South Korea in 2009.

Wishing you a very happy birthday, Adalaide!
