Kelly Rutherford Plans a Nursery…Without a Home!

Putting her acrimonious split with husband Daniel Giersch behind her, Kelly Rutherford tells OK! that the estranged couple are moving on — and that their relationship is now “amicable.” Noting that “everyone has their moments,” Kelly explains that both she and Daniel “have a lot of love in our hearts…It’s just [about] figuring everything out.” One big thing the 40-year-old Gossip Girl star is yet to figure out is which coast she, son Hermés Gustaf Daniel, 2, and the daughter she expects in June will call home in the wake of the separation.

“We’ve been coming up with some ideas. Right now I’m just finding some tear sheets and talking to different people about doing a nursery. I’ve got to figure out if I’m going to do it in L.A. or New York because I think I’m going to be in New York more. So it’s more logistics.”

As for Hermés, Kelly reveals that he’s “getting excited” about baby-on-the-way, and that he already calls his little sister by name. “We talk about it,” Kelly reveals. “I don’t know if the reality is there yet but he’s really sweet…I think he’s going to be an amazing big brother.” As her due date approaches Kelly says she’s craving only healthy foods, which will surely make the job of returning to pre-pregnancy size easier! “Lately it’s been celery and carrots…Like crunchy vegetables and fruits and things like that,” she explains. “I ate a whole papaya on the way here, with lime.” With the reality of being a single, working mom with two small children looming large, Kelly says she’s not intimidated, and is instead keeping it all in perspective.

“You do meditation, you do yoga, and you pray. You focus on what’s important and on being a mom.”

I hope the location of the children’s father factors in heavily in her decision to chose where the nursery will be.

I agree, Anna.

just out of curiousity, what does her estranged husband do for a living? i’ve seen several titles, but one that pops up often is “millionare,” as though he is retired…would it be easier for him to move to nyc, where she is contractually obligated to work? when they were feuding, it seemed as though the presumption was that she would have to move to los angeles, not vice versa… just wondering, i do hope they work it out.

First of all, these celebrities make a lot of money. Ms. Rutherford can well afford a Nanny or some other sort of help. It’s difficult to be a single parent no matter what the circumstances, but my heart goes out for the average woman who is doing this alone and on a small income.

I am just glad these two seem to start acting like adults and are trying to be civil for the children involved. I agree Lola, it is much easier when you have the income.

It sounds like Kelly and Daniel have chosen a name for baby girl on the way (since Kelly said that Hermes refers to the baby by name)!

Her ex is an entrepreneur. Basically it sounds like, yes, he has loads of money from his business ventures. He started G-mail in Germany (not google g-mail) then took Google to court so they could not use the name G-mail in Germany.

I would assume the reason that NY is not a given to call home is because their home is not in NY. If I recall when she is working on her show they are living in a hotel. It is nice to see them behaving better these days. So much better for their little guy and for baby on the way. All that fighting is surely not good for the pregnancy.

I would also like to point out that she is not “doing this alone”. Wasn’t the big show down in court over the fact that both Mom and Dad wanted custody of their son. Dad did not want him to be so far away especially when Mom works such long hours. And per the court (I think) he is allowed to be with them in NY to spend time with Hermes.
