"[The news] was a little confusing for the girls because they'd be like, 'I grew in your tummy?' And I had to explain, 'Well, you didn't actually grow in my tummy, but your dad and I are your parents,'" she shares.

The Heigl family is no stranger to adoption. Heigl's older sister, Meg, was adopted from Korea.

"Usually I'm pretty good at memorizing," she explained. "I can do that pretty quickly. It's like the only thing I've got. So, it's really been eye-opening to me to struggle with that."
