Josh Kelley Loves Katherine Heigl “Even More” Now That She’s A Mom

Josh Kelley Loves Katherine Heigl "Even More" Since Becoming A Mom

Singer-songwriter Josh Kelley and wife, actress Katherine Heigl, are proud parents to 2-year-old daughter Naleigh. Since becoming a dad, Josh has partnered up with ConAgra Foods Foundation’s Hunger-Free Summer program with Feeding America to help hungry kids across the nation.

The “dada” of one opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about his famous wife whom he calls “a great mom,” dealing with the ever-present paparazzi, plans for baby No. 2, and his sweet daughter: “She’s the cutest girl in the world.”

CBS: How is Naleigh doing? What is she into these days?

JK: “She is doing great. She’s running around everywhere and talking so much. She’s the cutest girl in the world. She loves to sing and loves when dada reads her books.”

CBS: Is she into potty training yet? If so, how is that going?

JK: “She just started! She’s doing great. Only a few accidents so far, but she loves being out of daipers.”

CBS: How do you and Katherine deal with the ever-present paparazzi while you’re out and about Naleigh?

JK: “Honestly, we both understand that it is something we have to deal with in the realm of our chosen career paths. We live in Utah for most of the year, so we don’t have to deal with it there. It’s a really peaceful existence.”

CBS: Tell us what kind of mom Katherine is. Any plans for baby No. 2? Another adoption, or maybe a biological child?

JK: “She’s a really great mom. I love her even more when I think about what a great mom she is to Naleigh. We are taking it one child at a time. No plans for baby No. 2 right now, but you never know when it may happen.”

CBS: Is Naleigh showing any signs of walking in your rockstar footsteps? Or maybe mama’s acting footsteps?

JK: “She loves music. She has perfect pitch, too. I think she’ll be a singer.”

CBS: Any upcoming plans for Father’s Day?

JK: “I’ll be playing a show in Grand Rapids, MI on Father’s Day so I don’t know what my girls have planned. I guess I’ll be surprised. I look forward to just spending time with my family.”

CBS: Tell us about partnering up with ConAgra Foods Foundation’s Hunger-Free Summer program with Feeding America.

JK: “As a dad, I can’t imagine a world where my daughter would ever be hungry. So when I hear that there are millions of kids at risk of hunger, especially during the summer when school is out, I knew I had to get involved. I’m working with the ConAgra Foods Foundation to help raise awareness about the issue and how people can get help and give help.”

CBS: Please give us an idea of how many kids go hungry over the summer in America. How can we help out?

JK: “During the school year, there are 21 million kids who get free or reduced-price lunches at school. During the summer, there are only 2.3 million kids enrolled in similar programs. That means there are 18 million kids that are unaccounted for during the summer – we don’t know where they are getting their meals.

Through the Hunger-Free Summer Program, the ConAgra Foods Foundation has pledged $5 million to Feeding America over five years to expand summer meal programs to more children in more places. If you want to give help, or if your family needs to get help, you can visit HungerFreeSummerTour.org.”

    Someone needs to fix the grammar of that headline. As written, Josh Kelley is the subject, so it implies he loves her more since he became a mom, which of course makes no sense. It really should read, “Josh Kelley Loves Katherine Heigl ‘Even More” Since She Became a Mom”.

    You’re welcome.

    does he realize that some people that should get free or reduced price lunches don’t always qualify for the program Which I should know because I couldn’t get reduced price lunch until my last year & a half of high school because my fathers job makes too much money

      If your father made too much money, then you weren’t a kid that should have gotten a free or reduced lunch.

        Actually it’s the families that have” good” jobs that need these programs the most. Typically a middle class family has enough money to pay the rent/mortgage, home/renters insurance, utilities, health insurance, car payments/ car insurance, credit card bills and other bills a family may have and after that’s all paid you don’t have much left for groceries. I have been in this situation before and could barely afford milk after the bills were paid. Since being injured and receiving assistance I have had no issues making sure my family was fed. I really think they need to make food programs for those that work and still have trouble putting food on the table because the cost of living takes all the money they do make. Those are the people that need help and they are not worthy because they have a job. Something is wrong with that picture!

          very simple. Don’t live beyond your means. take on a lower mortgage/rent, cut down on utilities, use credit cards as little as possible, shop for the cheapest food, don’t renovate your home if it isn’t absolutely critical, don’t upgrade cars, etc.. You may be in a special circumstance which may be completely out of your control (and in that case i am more than understanding), but most people who claim they are middle class and can’t even afford to send their children to school with lunches would be surprised to see how much of the things they own/pay for are not necessary. and you are wrong. it isn’t the families that have “good jobs” that need them the MOST. you may be in need of them, I’m not arguing that, but families who barely have jobs and don’t even have cars/can barely pay for basic utilities need them the MOST. that’s a FACT.

    While it is easy to recognize who the celebrity daddy is because they are always in the headlines – its not always as easy to know who the daddy is for us non-celebrities! If you want everyone to know who the daddy is check out daddyscrubs.com and get some “IM THE DADDY” gear! It is the perfect gift for any father or father to be who wants to flaunt their title of daddy while being comfy and trendy!
