Katherine Heigl is getting candid about raising her two adopted children.

The Ugly Truth actress did an interview for Parents magazine’s April issue and posed on the front cover with her husband Josh Kelley and their kids Joshua Bishop, four, Adalaide Marie Hope, eight, and Naleigh Mi-Eun, 12.

Heigl shared how her two adopted daughters are asking them “more questions as they get older.”

“We have said to them, ‘This is your story. We don’t have any information about your biological fathers, but we do have a bit about your biological mothers,'” Heigl, 42, said of Naleigh and Adalaide.

“‘If you guys want to talk more about them, you can have as much or as little information as you want,'” she recalled of their conversations. “‘Tell us what you’re comfortable with knowing.'”

Heigl’s sister Meg was adopted, but she still feels “naive” about her experience when they were growing up.

“I had to realize, okay, this isn’t about how it makes me feel,” she said. “It’s about how I need to protect my daughters and prepare them for the world because I can’t change society in one fell swoop.”

Meanwhile, Heigl’s son is addicted to all things Spider-Man and the Hulk. The actress also has five dogs (Bubba, Flora, Tambor, Sarge and Poppy) and three cats (Checkers, Coco and Mr. Woo).

The Grey’s Anatomy alum feels as though her family is now complete.

“Before the pandemic, I thought that we needed one more child,” she said. “I wasn’t sure if we would go the foster-care route or adoption or maybe another pregnancy. But now I have completely changed my mind. I am very content with my three!”
