Kelly Rutherford spent a fun afternoon with her two children – son Hermés, 3 1/2, and daughter Helena, 10 months – at the Malibu market playground on Sunday (May 2). Kelly carried Helena around and let her play in the sandbox while Hermés, dressed in a red, wanted to read a storybook with mom.
The 41-year-old Gossip Girl star filed for divorce from the kids’ father, German businessman Daniel Giersch, when she was just three months pregnant with Helena. “It’s challenging,” Kelly said of their custody battle. “I certainly never expected the emotional roller coaster. It was tough to be pregnant and have this happen. It’s made me stronger.”
