The Clagett Triplets – Brooke, Lexi and Brynn, all have a starring role as baby Sophie in Katherine Heigl’s new movie "Life As We Know It" which is released on October 8th. The triplets spent last Fall in Atlanta shooting the production and all three played the part of the 15 month old child for whom Katherine and Josh Duhamel’s characters become the unexpected carers.
During the past year, mom Erin Clagett has shared details of the triplets first film experience on the family blog. Last week parents Erin and Tom attended the "Life As We Know It" premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York and the after party at the Loeb Central Park Boathouse, where they got catch up with Katie, Josh Duhamel and director Greg Berlanti.

Speaking to Parade’s Jeanne Wolf about her new movie "Life As We Know It", Katherine chatted about her battle to quit smoking, movie motherhood and how husband Josh Kelley copes with on-screen romance.
Movie mothering versus the real thing
"I thought I was going to be getting some advance training in how to be a real mother while I played the role in the movie. But the adoption of my baby from Korea went on ahead of schedule, and my daughter, Naleigh, arrived weeks before we began filming. I was really thrown into hot water pretty quickly. I was sort of faking changing diapers on the set, but at home I was doing it for real."

Chatting to press at the recent junket for "Life As We Know It" in New York, Katherine explained the parallels between the new movie and her own life.
The adoption of her daughter Nancy Leigh from South Korea took place only a few days before filming began on the picture – which sees her character Holly Berenson becomes a caregiver to an orphaned child. As a result, Heigl had little time to bond with the triplets who played the child in the film prior to production, unlike her co-star Josh Duhamel who had spend a few weeks getting to know them before the shoot.
