Katherine Heigl impressed with husband's tattoo tribute

Katherine Heigl was deeply moved by her husband Josh Kelley's new tattoo tribute to his family, calling the gesture the "most romantic thing anyone's ever done" for her.

The country star went under the needle in Los Angeles on Tuesday (22Nov11) to have a picture of the Sagittarius sign inked on his arm in honour of his actress wife and their adopted daughter Naleigh, who both have birthdays in November.


Kelley also had the number 24 tattooed above the image, and the number 23 in Naleigh's native Korean language below.


The singer explains, "My wife's birthday is November 24 and Naleigh's is on November 23, so her 23 is in Korean and the Sagittarius symbol is in the middle."


Heigl and her father were with Kelley at the tattoo parlour and she posted pictures on her Twitter.com page, telling fans, "With my man Josh Kelley as he gets his very first tattoo! Crazy! My dad and I are hanging with him for moral support!.. (He) designed a pretty cool tat, first few ideas I wasn't so happy with...


"He's getting a Sagittarius sign and Naleigh's bday (sic) in Korean and mine! Super cool!... Kinda the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me and so hot that he's such an amazing dad!"
