Katherine Heigl never saw her daughter on Grey’s Anatomy

A difficult time. Katherine Heigl open about the difficulties she faced as a mother while at work Grey’s anatomy — and feeling separated from daughter Naleigh after so long.

“I never saw the baby. I was at work with three triplets who played my goddaughter and I’ve been spending more time with them than my new daughter and she’s bonded with my husband,” said Heigl, 44, on Monday’s episode November 28th The view. “So I was always afraid that I missed this opportunity to really connect with her and that she didn’t love me.”

That Firefly Lane The actress tied the knot with her husband Josh Kelly in 2007. Two years later Us weekly confirmed the couple had adopted baby Naleigh from South Korea. The couple shared photos of their then-10-month-old child later that month.

However, less than a year after they brought their little one home, Heigl was “on a plane” and back to “work in Atlanta” for the ABC series.

“By the time I became a new mom, I was just like, ‘I get it. I understand it. I can handle it,'” she explained. “You know, they told us we can have anything. We can have careers and families and everything will be great. Everything will work out.”

Despite the challenges of being a working mom, the life as we know it Star hinted at her desire to expand her family during a June 2010 interview with Gala Magazine. “We would like to have a second child, adopted or biological,” the Golden Globe nominee said at the time. “We’re not ruling it out.”

Two years later, Heigl’s spokesman confirmed this Us weekly that the parents had adopted a second daughter named Adalaide. The couple’s third child, son Joshua, was born in December 2016.

The Washington DC native has been candid about the struggles she has faced Grey’s anatomy over the years. Heigl portrayed doctor Izzie Stevens in over 100 episodes from 2005 to 2010 on the medical drama when she dropped out mid-season. Her abrupt departure came after a public feud with the Creator Shonda Rhimes.

“There was a solution to Izzie’s story. We had planned for her to come back for an episode to really get Izzie and Alex hooked (Justin Chambers)”, Krista Vernoff, who worked on seasons 1-7 of the medical drama before returning as showrunner for season 14, the Los Angeles Times in November 2020. “And I wrote this episode, and it was beautiful. The day before it was supposed to start prep or filming, I can’t remember, we got a call that Katie wasn’t coming. Just didn’t come. Didn’t want to do it. It became my job to stay up all night for several nights reinventing a script that didn’t involve Izzie.”

Vernoff went on to say that while fans “yelled at the writers for years” about Heigl’s departure, the show always had plans to wrap up Izzie’s story. “That’s the behind-the-scenes story. That’s what happened. I’m not saying this to beat up Katie. I don’t know what happened in her life,” she explained.

However, sources close to Heigl said Us at the time Vernoff was “wrong” about the actress’ exit from the series. “Katherine was back in LA after maternity leave (when she adopted her Adalaide) waiting to be called to the set,” the insider shared.

Heigl in turn told Access 2014 that she hopes to “one day” mend the fences between her and 52-year-old Rhimes. In January 2021 the knocked open Stern even said Washington Post that returning as Izzie before the end of the long-running series would be “totally dependent on the team over there, how they feel about it and the story.”

She added, “Never say never.”
