Kelly Rutherford Finally Granted Sole Custody of Her Kids

Kelly Rutherford has finally earned a major victory in her long legal battle for the custody of her children.

The 46-year-old former Gossip Girl actress has been granted sole legal and physical custody of her two kids – Hermes, 8, and Helena, almost 6.

A California judge has ordered that the kids are brought back to the United States from Monaco. They have been living with their father Daniel Giersch in Europe since 2012 after a judge had ruled that he would get custody due to his U.S. visa being revoked. The judge had said at the time that Kelly was able to visit the children in Europe, even though her ex-husband never made an attempt to renew his visa.

The happy news for Kelly comes just days after she reportedly tried to visit the kids in France on Thursday (May 21), but was turned away by Daniel unless she gave their U.S. passports to someone from his team.

Kelly Rutherford Covers Baby Couture

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, aka Lily van der Woodsen takes the latest cover of Baby Couture with her 2-year-old son Hermes. Here are some of the mag’s highlights:

Did being the eldest in the family somewhat prepare you to be a mother? Yes. I took over immediately when my brother was born, ha ha! I always loved the holidays with him, and shopping with my mom. I think my mom had been told by her doctor that the best thing was to let the older sibling help, and I took it very seriously. And she always let me help with my younger brother, and that’s why we’re so close today.

Who do you see, or want, Hermes growing up like: [Gossip characters] Nate, Chuck, or Dan? Dan. Because I think he’s smart…he has good values. He obviously has good taste in women, as he’s dating my daughter!

How is Hermes like on set? He’s great on set. There’s so much to see. He loves the makeup and hair trailer. He’s always blow-drying everyone’s hair. There’s the little forklift that they use to build the sets—he loves to check that out. And all the trucks and brooms—he loves to sweep. There’s so much that he loves to play with.

Kelly Rutherford: Daniel Giersch is a Liar!

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford is in the middle of a nasty divorce with her husband Daniel Giersch as he has made claims that she is violent and an unsuitable mother for their 2-year-old son Hermes.

Kelly‘s rep tells JustJared.com that these claims are completely untrue: “At this time, Kelly doesn’t have an official statement on her divorce. However, I would personally like to go on the record and state that right now Kelly is focusing on what is in the best interest of her family and trying to bring as much normalcy to their lives as possible during this difficult time. The statements being made by her husband Daniel Giersch are completely fabricated and Kelly is a loving and caring individual and a wonderful mother.”

“FYI: Kelly is three months pregnant with her and Daniel‘s second child.”

Daniel Giersch Beat Out Google

FYI: German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, the ex-husband-to-be of pregnant actress Kelly Rutherford, battled out a legal challenge with Google for nearly three years.

Giersch secured the domain gmail.de, four years after Google tried to acquire it. He claims Google offered him $250,000 for the domain at one point.

“Neither G-Mail nor I can be bought,” Giersch has said. “I have made it clear since the beginning that I will never sell the name. It is my sole intention to realize my idea for a hybrid mail system and I am absolutely convinced of its success. Neither G-Mail nor myself are for sale.”

After years of trying, Google finally decided to give up earlier this year. German users now can’t sign up for “gmail.com” accounts–they get “googlemail.com” instead.

Rutherford, who stars as Lily van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, is three months pregnant with Giersch‘s second child and filed for divorce on Dec. 30.
