Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel costar in the upcoming movie, Life As We Know It playing a platonic couple who are suddenly faced with raising a child together. And the Grey’s Anatomy star tells ET that some of what takes place on-screen closely resembles her off-screen life.
“I was literally experiencing new motherhood on film as I was experiencing it in my own life,” says Katherine, who became a mom to daughter Naleigh last year.
In their new film, Katherine and Josh became caregivers to a 1-year-old girl when their mutual friends die suddenly. The unlikely twosome are forced to contend with parenthood and have an even harder time dealing with each other.
But this is one case where life doesn’t imitate art – off-screen Katherine is happily married to singer-songwriter Josh Kelley.
