Josh Kelley Can't Wait to Marry Katherine Heigl

at . Comments

Fifteen months into his engagement to Emmy winner and Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, singer-songwriter Josh Kelley says he's ready to start a family.

"I always thought I'd be scared, but I'm ready," Kelley said. "I'm 27, and I feel I've done more than most people will do in a lifetime. I'm ready to settle down, start a family and build my Kelley empire."

The couple, who met when Heigl appeared in a music video for Kelley's song "Only You," got engaged in June 2006. Kelley is sure the 28-year-old Grey's Anatomy star, who he will wed in December, is the one.

"She's so great," he says. "We're both kind of carbon copies of each other in some ways, and we also have our differences, which makes things fun and exciting."

The prospect of marriage even inspired Josh Kelley's latest material.

"I just finished a new album called Special Company, which sort of takes us through the emotional roller coaster of getting married," he says.

Are kids on the horizon for the cute couple? "We haven't talked about it," Kelley says. "We throw around names, but it's just for fun."

Kelley was performing in Las Vegas Sunday night and couldn't be in L.A. to see Katherine Heigl snag the Emmy Award for best supporting actress in a drama series. But he got the news immediately, with a little help from his friends.

"My manager put her phone up to her TV so I could hear Katherine's speech," he said. "It's beautiful. She works so hard, and she's so deserving of it."

The couple soon spoke by phone. "I couldn't even understand what she was saying because she was so excited," Kelley says. "It was awesome."

Why do these Hollywood idiot chicks find idiots like this moron that can't even shave and brush his hair attractive? He looks like a bum. Is that supposed to be sexy or is that the style? Heigal must be good for one thing and it's not acting since all the acting she does is in stupid movies or tv shows.

How sensible of him to promote his new album. Now at least I can buy it - 'cos before he started dating Ms Heigl I had never heard of him. Judging by his success he must have as much talent as her.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
