These pix are absolutely adorable!

We just spotted TV actress turned movie star Katherine Heigl playing in a Hollywood park with her adopted daughter Naleigh this afternoon. Just look at those smiles! Who knew Kat would make a good mother?

And now that she's free from filming Grey's Anatomy - Heigl said she "couldn't sacrifice my relationship with my child" to do the show - the new mom has more time to spend with her kid. Except for all the movies she's going to make, of course.
