Kelly Rutherford has received some great news – her kids will be heading back to the United States to spend the summer with her!
The former Gossip Girl actress’ kids have been living in Monaco with their father Daniel Girsch since 2012, when a judge allowed him to take them out of the country as he was not allowed in the United States.
Kelly was granted sole custody of their two children – Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6 – last month, but then the custody order was blocked by a judge in Monaco.
The summertime visits have happened for the last two years, as spelled out in a custody order issued in Los Angeles back in 2013. Kelly‘s lawyers are afraid there might be problems getting the children back to the states as her ex-husband has been blocking her from seeing the kids since March.
“I can’t imagine that the children won’t be permitted to come to the United States as they’ve done for the past two summers,” Kelly said in a statement after the hearing on Thursday (June 11). “But, so far, their father has not kept up his side of the deal, and I am concerned that he will try to further prevent me from spending time with them.”
“I hope this is finally coming to an end, and my children will soon be coming home,” she added.
