Josh hearts Josh!

After making out with Katie Holmes in The Romantics, Josh Duhamel got to smooch Katherine Heigl on-camera in their new flick Life As We Know It. But Duhamel's got his eyes on someone else: Heigl's man!

"Personally, I'm a big fan of Katherine's husband, Josh Kelley," Duhamel, 37, tells of musician Kelley, 30. "So kissing her in Life As We Know It was like indirectly getting to make out with him!"

Adds Duhamel, who wed Fergie last year: "Just kidding," and explains that Kelley's not a huge fan of watching his wife kiss on the job. "Josh didn't come around to the set during our big lip-lock. Katherine says he's never there when she has to do a make-out scene."

The star himself says kissing other women like Holmes and Heigl is "one of the perks of the job. Katherine was like, 'You were making out with Katie Holmes in your last movie?' Excuse me, I'm already jealous.'"

Heigl, 30, and Kelley were in the process of adopting their daughter Naleigh from South Korea while filming Life As We Know It.

"I remember Katherine saying, 'At some point during the movie I'm probably going to finally get my adopted daughter. But it will probably be a month after we begin,'" Duhamel recounts,

"Then she shows up four days before we started shooting with her new baby," he continues "Little Naleigh was just a little sweetheart. She's so squishy and cute. She makes you want to chew on her cheeks!" he gushes of the little girl, now 22 months.
