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.

“Meg has had a profound impact on Katherine’s life, which is why she and Josh are trying to adopt a Korean child,” a source tells the National Enquirer. “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.”
