Heigl and her singer-songwriter husband, Josh Kelley, 43, have been married since 2007. They currently share three children—Naleigh, 14, and Adalaide, 11, who they adopted, and their son, Joshua, 6, who Heigl gave birth to in December 2016.
The Knocked Up star explained her family’s transition to Utah, saying, “We built these houses in Utah that we expected to be more vacation homes, or when I could get away from the hustle and all the work. And we just started spending more and more time there...It was my husband who finally made it his primary residence on his driver’s license and stuff. And we went: ‘Yeah, I think this is our primary residence. We live here now.’”
She added, “I think my children sometimes wish they were in more of a hubbub-y exciting city, but I said to them, ‘Listen, I understand that you are sacrificing that in some ways but I still think it was the right choice for us as a family, because I am more centered and aware of what’s going on in your life.’”
