LOS ANGELES (AP):

Katherine Heigl has given birth to a baby boy.

A representative for Heigl tells People magazine that the actress and husband Josh Kelley welcomed Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr on December 20.

Joshua is the couple's first son and Heigl's first biological child. She has two adopted daughters, four-year-old Adalaide and eight-year-old Naleigh.

Heigl said she and Kelley were "full of high hopes and bubbling anticipation" when announcing the pregnancy in June.

The 38-year-old Heigl shot to stardom on the ABC hit Grey's Anatomy and in movies like Knocked Up and 27 Dresses.

She's currently set to play a defence lawyer in the upcoming CBS drama, Doubt, which premieres next month.
