Katherine Heigl has released the first public picture of her new baby Naleigh - and she’s super-cute!

The Grey’s Anatomy star and her hubby Josh Kelley released the first pictures of their 10-month-old daughter, a special-needs child they adopted from South Korea, on the actress’s fundraising website.

Talking about the adoption on the Ellen DeGeneres show last week, Heigl said: ‘She was actually born the day before me in November, which I thought was really serendipitous and just kind of like a sign.’

Heigl’s site features four new family photos and also explains that Naleigh is just a nickname for Nancy Leigh – named after Heigl's mother Nancy and Heigl's sister Margaret Leigh.

Aww. Adorable.
