Katherine Heigl Said She’d Probably Stay Married to Her Husband, Josh Kelley, Even if He Cheated

Katherine Heigl has a reputation as being difficult to work with — but we doubt her husband, Josh Kelley, agrees. The two tied the knot in 2007 and are still together today. And Heigl once noted their bond is so unbreakable that even if Kelley cheated, she’d likely stick it out. Here’s what she said.

Heigl may not have a great relationship with a lot of Hollywood elites, but she certainly is one of the lucky ones when it comes to love. Wide Open Country notes Heigl met Kelley back in 2005 when she starred in his music video for “Only You.” The two connected quickly and finally tied the knot in 2007.

“We’re madly in love and she makes me excited to become married and to have a family and spend my life with someone,” Kelley said at the time. “We’re fairly opposite but we also share a lot of the same values.”

Heigl and Kelley then decided to pursue adoption. They adopted Naleigh from South Korea and later adopted another daughter, Adalaide Marie Hope. The couple then decided to have a biological child. They welcomed Joshua Bishop in 2017 and were very thankful for their blended family.

“With Adalaide, you know, we adopted her from birth, so we got that experience,” Kelley said. “Naleigh, we got her when she was 9 months old, so this obviously is our first time going through this. It’s exciting and super new.”

It’s tough to make any marriage work, especially when you’re constantly thrust into the spotlight. Despite the hardship, Heigl and Kelley are committed to each other. And Heigl even noted she’d probably stick through her marriage with Kelley even if he cheated.

“Josh and I always said that cheating would be a deal-breaker; there is no second chance,” Heigl told British Cosmopolitan, according to People. “But I’ve seen friends and acquaintances go through it and they’ve found a way back to the relationship, and a way to forgive each other.”

“As much as I would kill him if he cheated because it would destroy me, I have started to question whether, if a mistake were to be made and it was a one-time thing, I would forgive him,” Heigl added. “Because look at the life we’ve built together. We have history, we have a child.”

The couple’s still going strong in 2021

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like Kelley and Heigl will have to go through a cheating scandal. The two are still going strong in 2021. And Heigl’s talked about the strength of her relationship in the past.

“I think that we just really enjoy each other,” Heigl told Us Weekly. “He’s kind of my best friend. I think that can be tricky. When it starts to become too much of a friendship and not enough of a romance, that can also be a problem.” 

While the couple hits their relationship snags, they’re still able to overcome. “I remember thinking, ‘I should just ask him what would make him really happy,'” Heigl continued. “Just recognize what your partner really needs from you, ask them and if you can do that, do that.”
