Faces & Names: Actress Heigle going to the dogs

(File / Associated Press)

Bedtime at Katherine Heigl's house can take a while. As a mom of two daughters and seven other kids of the four-legged variety, she likes to give each one special attention.

The Emmy Award winner says first she tucks in her girls, 4-year-old Naleigh and baby Adalaide, who turns 1 in April. Then she takes her seven dogs through their own nighttime ritual.

"I literally put each one to bed and every one of them gets hugged and kissed before they go to bed," she laughed in a recent interview. "It sounds absurd because there are some nights where you're like, 'I'm exhausted!' but there's never a night where I don't want that time with them."

The actress has channeled her love of animals to ending animal abuse. She's launching a line of pet products called Just One where portions of the proceeds go to help programs that foster, train, neuter and rescue animals.
