Katherine Heigl: 'I'll Miss My Grey's Anatomy Family'

April 8th, 2010 12:08pm EDT

Katherine HeiglKatherine Heigl is sad to be finally leaving Grey's Anatomy - because her fellow cast members became like "family" during her six-year stint on the hit show.

Heigl has been dogged by rumors of a departure from the show ever since she landed her movie break-out role in 2007's Knocked Up. After taking a three-month hiatus from the hit medical drama, Heigl finally announced in March that she will no longer be a part of the series - because she wants to focus on being a mom to adopted daughter Naleigh.
 
The 31 year old is adamant she has not fallen out with her former colleagues - insisting she's desperate to meet Ellen Pompeo's baby daughter Stella Luna.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "Ellen (Pompeo) and I text a lot. I'm still waiting to meet Stella Luna. And Justin (Chambers) and I have been texting. Chyler Leigh is one of the most amazing young women. Just unbelievably lovely and supportive."
 
"These are my friends. They're kind of family at this point. I spent more time with them over the past six years than I did with my own family. So I'm going to miss that."
