CBB will have five minutes to chat with Kelly Rutherford tomorrow, and we’d like to know what you’re most interested in finding out from her! Expecting a baby girl in June, the Gossip Girl star, 40, is also mom to son Hermés, 2. We need just a few fabulous questions from our readers, and would love to pick your brains — what would you like to ask Kelly?

(And no, we’re not going to ask her about her marital issues. Gossip Girl, motherhood, new daughter and Hermés questions only, please!)

Leave your questions in the comments!

I want to know her daughter’s name is going to be! I don’t understand why celebrities (for the most part) keep it a secret – let us know and get us excited about her arrival!

Claire Reynolds on

I would like to know if there would be any name suggestions they’d like to release at this point.

Sarah on

Hi Kelly! Do you have any names picked out for your little girl and how do your Gossip Girl costars act about your pregnancy? Did you and Matthew talk a lot since you both were expecting about the same time?

Ruth on

I, too, nursed my older one during pregnancy and am still tandem nursing my almost 4 year old and my 2.5 month old. Is Hermes still nursing and how are you preparing for tandem nursing?

Shelby on

Oh I love Kelly! Please send her my congratulations! I’m curious if Hermes name has anything to do with her favorite handbag designer that she frequently wears?

Lauren on

I would like to know more about how she handles being a working mom and any tips or tricks she has for it all. I think no matter how famous the person is, or how much money they have to hire care – being a working mother presents lots of challenges. I’d love to know how she balances everything.

Noelle on


Love you on Gossip Girl! How have you been hiding your pregnancy during the show’s tapings? Or are they going to write it in?

Kattrin on

I would like to know what Hermes thinks of becoming a big brother and what she does to prepare him for her arrival?

Anna on

I’m going to be taking my son (who will be 12 months old at the time) on his very first plane trip soon. Any travel tips?

Erica on

Do you have any ideas for decorating the baby’s nursery? Will it be very girly, or more gender neutral?

Lauren on


How often do you bring Hermes to the Gossip Girl set? Do your co-stars (Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, etc.) have fun with him in between takes? Does he enjoy being surrounded by so many beautiful women?😉

Harley on

What are some of the things you choose to do in order to pamper yourself while pregnant after a long day at work?

Sonja on

With your husband being German, do you raise your children bilingual?

Kristen on

Kelly, How have your much younger co-stars reacted to your son and your pregnancy?

and also,

What are your thoughts on the Gossip Girl spin-off based on your character? What about the casting of Brittany Snow as the younger Lily?

Jeannette on

(1) I love your maternity style. Where do you shop?
(2) Hermes is such a unique name. Do you have a name just as special for your daughter?

Gabrielle on

Hi Kelly! I love watching Hermés on the pictures, but when you see some papparazi, how does he react to them? And how do you react to them when you’re with your child around them?

PrincesseEmma on

Which girl’s names does she like? Is the baby’s father involved in choosing the name?
Is she going to pick a name that goes with Hermés? Is that difficult?

Niki on

This goes along with someone else’s question… if you are raising Hermés bilingual – do you have any tips on how to do so.

N.S on


I am also an extended-breastfeeder and find the pressure from friends and family who do not fully understand why (however much I explain!)disheartening.
Do you have to deal with the same pressure being a mother in the spot light, or have you felt well supported?

Colleen on

I want details on new GG story lines?
My real question is: how does she balance long days on set with making time for Hermes?

Kelie Aindow on

I would like to ask how she stays centered and positive with her seperation of her husband, Kelly how are you able to keep a positive frame of mind, a centered mindset and able to move forward in a positive way, with the negativity currently in your life.

Blessings to you and your family and I hope you know that many of us working single mom’s are behind you 100% !!!

i would love the chance to hear kelly’s thoughts about infant/toddler “fashion”. with gossip girl being such a fashion-forward show, how does she feel about some parents placing emphasis on what their children wear (as infants/toddlers)? does she think the designer lines for children are practical? a fun splurge? now the mainstream? etc.
does she prefer a more “down-to-earth” or “disposable” wardrobe for her children? they can be messy, after all!🙂
she always looks so pulled together when she is out and about (pregnant or not!!), so i would love to hear her thoughts on “fashion” for children.
congratulations to kelly!

Savanna on

Send Kelly my congratulations and I wanna know…

Is Hermes excited about becoming a big brother? I think he’s soo adorable!

lauren on

one more question [if i may!]:
what traditions have you carried over from your childhood that you would like to start-up again with your own children? anything specific centered around holidays, birthdays, just the everyday?!
did you start any new traditions with your growing family?
thank you for sharing!

Amanda on
