Hermes, 2, became a big brother last night when his mama, Kelly Rutherford, delivered an eight-pound, 12-ounce baby girl in Los Angeles! Born at 9:20 p.m., Helena Grace Rutherford Giersch is the second child the Gossip Girl actress has with ex-husband, Daniel Giersch. Though the former couple's recent feuds have made news headlines, Life & Style reports that the father was informed of the birth and invited to the hospital.
All a youngster needs to hear is the words, "swimming pool," to dash in and slip into a bathing suit. For parents, an open body of water means entertaining the "what ifs" that can cause stress and panic. Even well skilled wee swimmers fall victim to tragedy in an unsupervised pool.
Gossip Girl's very pregnant Kelly Rutherford is in a battle with her estranged husband, Daniel Giersch, over pool safety at his residence. Concerned for her 2-year-old son, Hermes' safety, the actress went as far as hiring a private eye to tape her ex's home for three days to illustrate the danger his uncovered pool poses to their young son. In court documents, Giersch said:
Hermes is not in any danger whatsoever with regard to my pool because I have the pool fully covered with an automatic pool cover. Hermes has no access to the pool area unless I take him to the pool myself.
Would you allow your child to stay or visit a home with an uncovered pool?
The beginning of a new life and the end of a marriage. Actress Kelly Rutherford filed for divorce from her hubby of two years, Daniel Giersch. The couple are parents to two-year-old son, Hermes, and Kelly is three-months pregnant with their second child. It's hard when any relationship ends, but could you handle splitting up while you were with child?
Actress Kelly Rutherford is still breastfeeding her son, Hermes, 2, despite being pregnant with a second child. The 40-year-old says she will continue to nurse him as long as it feels right. Some health professionals advise weaning a tot once the mama becomes pregnant with another, while others say there is no reason for it.
Did you (or would you) continue to nurse while pregnant?
