Born Joshua Bishop Kelley Sr. on January 30, 1980, in Augusta, Georgia, Josh Kelley’s age is 38.

As a teenager, he and Charles started the band, Inside Blue. At the age of 14, Inside Blue released an EP with five songs. It was through that record that they met James Brown. In 2001, Kelley then released his first solo album, Changing Faces.
In their high school jazz band, Josh played the guitar, while Charles played the drums, and their friend (and current Lady Antebellum band member) Dave Haywood also played the guitar.
As for his education, Kelley went to the University of Mississippi on a golf scholarship. He graduated with a degree in art.

More on Katherine Heigl’s Husband
Kelley and Heigl met in 2005 when she was in his music video for “Only You.” After dating for a year, the couple got engaged in June 2006.
In fact, he is so in love with Heigl that he wrote the song, “Hey Katie” for her! In an interview, Heigl said, “There is really nothing more romantic than that. It was one of the most thrilling and romantic things that I’ve ever experienced, and it makes me really like him bad.”
On December 23, 2007, Heigl and Kelley got married at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah. Their wedding was attended by her fellow Grey’s Anatomy costars like T.R. Knight, Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Kate Walsh, and Sandra Oh.
The two adopted a South Korean baby girl in 2009, and named her Nancy Leigh, but they lovingly call her Naleigh. Heigl, who was very excited about the adoption process, revealed that Naliegh’s birthday is a day before hers, which the actress took as a sign to go ahead with the adoption.
Three years later, Heigl and Kelley adopted another girl, Adalaide Marie Hope.
Then, on December 20, 2016, the couple welcomed their son, Joshua Bishop Kelley Jr. Talking about expecting for the first time, Heigl explained, “We were considering adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible. Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age, I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us. Turns out it was very much in the cards.”
