The couple announced Joshua’s impending arrival in a statement sent in June 2016.

“The Kelley clan is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a third addition to our family,” the couple told PEOPLE at the time. “Naleigh and Adalaide could not be more excited to welcome their new sibling into the fold, and Josh and I are overflowing with joy and gratitude.”

Heigl documented much of her pregnancy online. After announcing she was expecting, she turned to her blog with a heartfelt post about becoming a first-time biological mother.

“We were considering adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible,” she explained. “Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age, I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us. Turns out it was very much in the cards!”

Congratulations to the happy family!
