Katherine Heigl sneaks new animals into her house without telling her husband.
The former Grey Anatomy star - who runs her own foundation to help get dogs out of shelters and into loving homes - claims she adopted dozens of pets, including eight dogs, 11 horses, two donkeys and 10 chickens, behind Josh Kelley's back as she knows he can't refuse once the creatures are in their home.
She joked: "It's better to ask forgiveness than permission, you know?"
Luckily, the blonde beauty has the full support of her daughters, Naleigh, five, and Adelaide, two.
She said: "Naleigh is into the dogs. But Adelaide is obsessed."
Katherine originally set up the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation in 2008 in memory of her older brother, Jason, who was killed in a car accident when she was seven and is proud to have been able to give him a "legacy".
She told People magazine: "It's a way of giving him a legacy. The one he didn't live long enough to give himself."
