Having brought home Naleigh from South Korea last September, Heigl said she's finding it "difficult" to combine childcare with a career.
"Like any working mom, I have to make some compromises, but it is so much easier said than done," said Heigl. "I knew that I wanted to keep working, because I love what I do. But it was really hard to leave her and go to work so far away."
The adoption of Naleigh – who is named after Heigl's mother Nancy and sister Margaret Leigh – was fast-tracked, as the baby was initially considered to have special needs. It was only after she underwent surgery for a congenital heart defect that the infant left for America. Naleigh is now 100 percent fine.
