Katherine Heigl wants more kids

Katherine Heigl has dreams of expanding her brood to include biological babies and more adopted children.

The 34-year-old actress raises two adopted daughters with her husband Josh Kelley.

In 2009 the couple welcomed four-year-old Naleigh from Korea, and last year they adopted a baby girl from the US, Adalaide Marie Hope.

Katherine reflected on her experience of motherhood, which she says has made her life truly fulfilled.

"I remember discussing starting a family with my husband one evening and I told him: 'I'm tired of everything being about me. I've focused on my career for long enough.' I haven't ruled out having my own biological children either. Being a mother has made me less self-involved and anxious," she told British magazine Look. "I'd like to adopt more - there are so many abandoned children who deserve a loving home."

As a result of her two little arrivals, Katherine decided to take some time out from acting to focus on raising her brood. She has previously spoken about the heartbreak she went through when her first child initially rejected her.

The former Grey's Anatomy star is now ready to return to the big screens and will star in The Big Wedding due for release in the UK later this month.

"I needed to concentrate on my daughter. Naleigh and I lived through some difficult moments," she sadly explained. "When she first came home she became very attached to Josh but didn't seem to seem to bond with me. That was very hard so work felt less urgent."
