Knocked Up star KATHERINE HEIGL and her husband JOSH KELLEY are planning to adopt a child from South Korea within the next year, according to reports.
The couple has reportedly chosen South Korea because Heigl's older sister MEG was adopted from the country.
A source tells the National Enquirer, "Meg has had a profound impact on Katherine's life, which is why she and Josh are trying to adopt a Korean child.
"They've chosen an adoption agency and have started filing the necessary paperwork. They haven't gone public with the news yet because they want to make sure there are no problems before they make an announcement."
Earlier this year the 29-year-old, who found fame as surgeon Izzy in Grey's Anatomy, revealed she had abandoned plans to have a biological child with singer Kelley, who she married last December.
She said, "I'm done with the whole idea of having my own children. It doesn't seem like any fun. I don't think it's necessary to go through all of that."
