Why Katherine Heigl Doesn't Want To Be Like The Jolie-Pitts

Why Katherine Heigl Doesn't Want To Be Like The Jolie-Pitts

Has Katherine Heigl decided to end her plan of having a big family?

Katherine Heigl, 33, once shared a similar dream to power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Once planning for a huge family such as the Jolie-Pitt clan, Heigl has decided to put that goal to rest, according to CelebBabyLaundry.

"I used to look at Brad and Angelina and think what a great idea that was," Heigl says.

But after the former Grey's Anatomy star adopted her 3-year-old baby girl, Naleigh, with her husband Josh Kelley, she couldn't picture herself raising many more. "Now I have one, I can't imagine having any more than two — let alone six! It's so much work. I don't know how they do it." Katherine Heigl And Husband Introduce Daughter

Heigl is right, having six children like Angie and Brad is ALOT of work. So how does supermom Angelina balance everything? 

"I only work for a few months and then I take many months off," she once told Us Weekly. "Before Salt, we got a year and half off and just traveled and I just was a mom." A-List Links: Brad Pitt Found Angelina Jolie Crying In The Shower

At first, Katherine Heigl found balancing her career and motherhood just as difficult as Angelina did. The One For The Money star recently wrote in a blog post: "No matter how great my intentions, how lofty my goals, how passionate my commitment, I was failing. I was failing my work, I was failing my daughter, I was failing my husband. I was stressed out and exhausted."

After feeling guilty for being a working mom, calling herself "selfish," Heigl began to take a break from work to focus on her daughter. Luckily for us, the star has now begun to ease back into work with many new movies on the way.
