Katherine Heigl is looking for playdates for her daughter

Katherine Heigl holds her own as an actress, producer, wife and mom, but there's one thing she can't quite manage: her friends' biological clocks.

Turning up to the Elle Women in Hollywood celebration in Beverly Hills on Monday, Heigl shared the drawbacks of living life between two states and being the only woman with a child among her circle of friends.

"I don't actually have a ton of friends with kids, it's really weird. Naleigh doesn't really have a lot of friends, it's sad," Heigl said of her almost 3-year-old daughter with country singer Josh Kelley.

"We literally had to put her in preschool so she could make some friends and socialize," she said. 

What she may lack in playdates Naleigh compensates for in cool parents. The Ministry was seated next to the couple at the event, which honored the likes of Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Aniston, Viola Davis and Elizabeth Olsen.

Splitting their time between L.A. and a remote town in Utah, the pair are navigating two lifestyles and, presumably, waiting for their pals to catch up. 

Heigl will next be seen in January's "One for the Money."
