Katherine Heigl has been accused of trying to “upstage” her Grey’s Anatomy costar Ellen Pompeo — because she made public her adoption of a 10-month-old Korean daughter, Naleigh, on the the same day that Pompeo gave birth to a daughter of her own.
Pompeo gave birth to her first child, a girl, on September 15 in Los Angeles.
“It was very curious timing for her to drop that,” a source who knows both women told the New York Post‘s Page Six gossip column. “It was an adopted kid — she could have chosen any other day to make it public. Why compete?”
Pompeo didn’t confirm to the press the birth of her own little girl until Wednesday, which was the same day Heigl and her daughter appeared on the cover of People magazine.
“It looks like they were trying to one-up one another,” said the source.
Reps for both Heigl and Pompeo declined to comment, according to the Post.
