In an exclusive interview with In Touch magazine, Katherine Heigl opens up about leaving the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in 2010 with her husband, Josh Kelley, and their daughter Naleigh for a rustic ranch in Utah.
“We had dreams of expanding our family, moving to the mountains and having a quieter life,” the actress, who adopted the couple’s second daughter, Adalaide in 2012, admits.
“We live in a small ranching town 7,000 feet up in the mountains,” she adds. “It’s so peaceful.”

But that doesn't mean she is giving up on her career. Heigl — filming the upcoming CBS show Doubt — saying the change of scenery allows her to work and enjoy family life. “Now, when I’m working, I can say, “Guys, sorry, I can’t take a meeting every day, five days a week — I’m in Utah.”
Heigl credits motherhood for changing her perspective on life. “Before them, it was all about my goals as an actor. They helped me take a step back and go, OK, I have some important work to do on this earth.”
