Kelly Rutherford Hopeful 'Bowls of Fruit' Can Hide a Burgeoning Belly

12/04/2008 at 07:00 PM ET

For many writers of weekly television shows, finding a solution to an actress’ unexpected pregnancy is quite simple — write the big announcement into the plot line and avoid spending several months inventing creative ways to hide a burgeoning belly. While the method may be quick and simple, actress Kelly Rutherford — who recently announced she is expecting her second child in June — is hoping that the crew on her hit show, Gossip Girl, can become a bit more ingenious and avoid the more obvious option.

Although Kelly is aware that the writers "could change their minds" about the course her character takes, she is hopeful they are able to keep "what they’ve written now, it’s so wonderful." The 40-year-old laughs that, with the help of a few props, she is more than willing to do her part as well!

"I’m hoping I can just walk around holding bowls of fruit — or standing behind counters. My handbags will get a little bigger!"

Thrilled with the upcoming arrival, Kelly admits she is having trouble waiting to find out if her 2-year-old son Hermès Gustaf Daniel will be welcoming a new brother or a sister. In the mean time, however, Hermès is quite content rubbing his mommy’s growing belly, saying, "Mommy’s tummy!"

Hermès and baby-on-the-way are Kelly’s children with her husband, German businessman Daniel Giersch.

i think that’d be cool if serena and chuck had a sibling from her mother and his father.

She looks amazing on that picture, it’s a great picture of her. I love her son’s name I think that these 3 names flow really nice together. Can’t wait to hear what they name the next one. Hermès is so cute and I’m sure baby 2 will be too.

It’s so cute to know that she has a 2 year old and one on the way because on The OC she had a 17 year old son.

Congrats to the happy couple, I hope they have a little girl, she seems like she would be an excellent mommy to a daughter.

Ashley, I think you have her confused with Kelly Rowan who was on the OC. Kelly Rutherford is on Gossip Girl.

Yep, Kelly Rutherford is on GG. Though she does still have a 17/18 year old daughter and a 14/15 year old son.
