OXFORD, Ohio -- Being a new dad is music to Josh Kelley’s ears.
Katherine Heigl’s rocker husband took the stage on Friday night in Oxford, Ohio, to beam over the couple’s new addition to their family – 10-month-old daughter Nancy Leigh.
“We adopted a baby from Korea, me and my girl, and she’s awesome, dude! This girl is the bomb!” Kelley beamed to the crowd at Miami University in Ohio, according to People.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Heigl and Kelley completed the adoption process for Nancy Leigh – who they call Naleigh – on September 17.
However, it didn’t take dad long to celebrate his baby girl in his music. During the concert, he introduced a new song about Naleigh, which included the words, “Just to see you in mommy’s arms is all I need.”
The proud new parents posted photos of their daughter on the Web site for The Jason Heigl Foundation, named after the “Grey’s Anatomy” star’s brother, who died in 1986.
Naleigh is the first child for the couple, who wed in 2007. And while being a first-time parent is sure to present some challenges, Kelley said he loves every minute of it – even the messy stuff.
“It’s like I have Gerber all over my knee,” Kelley reportedly told the audience. “And it doesn’t even matter, I love it.”
