Tickling the ivories under 6-week-old Helena Grace‘s watchful eye, Kelly Rutherford enjoys an afternoon of rest and relaxation at the Sierra Mist Beach House, attending a barbecue with friends on July 11th.

The Gossip Girl star, 40, also did a little cake-testing with son Hermés Gustaf Daniel, 2 ½ (see extended post)!

Hermés and Helena are Kelly’s children with estranged husband Daniel Giersch.

Awww, those are such cute pictures, you can see that Hermes looks like his Mum and Helena like her Dad, lovely pictures, and obviously lovely relationships with their Mother! x

Both kids are adorable! And I agree with you Ruth. Hermes looks like Kelly and Helena looks just like her father!

Kelly is so beautiful, she looks alot better with little make up on.

Hermes is looking like a little boy now rather than a baby, a very handsome little boy.

Helena is just beautiful, look at those little chubby cheeks so cute.

Michelle on

Now that’s funny because I think Hermes looks like his dad and Helena more like Kelly. 🙂 But they are both beautiful children.

Chelsea on

I have to disagree with you guys, I think Hermes looks a lot like his father! Too soon for me to tell who Helena looks like. She sure is adorable!

merry on

Oh gosh, Helena is too cute!🙂

Samantha on

I’m dying to know how she keeps her skin looking so perfect. I will remember to ask that if you have another Q&A with her.

She looks beautiful and very happy with her babies.

The Writer on

Am I the only one who thinks Hermes looks a little like Liam McDermott?

Mia on

Aw, look at that little baby! She is paying close attention to her mom and those piano keys. I think Hermes is a combination of both parents, and Helena looks more like her dad at the moment.

Sheila on

Aww, its too bad that she had to go through this pregnancy by herself and things turned out the way they did, but you have to be happy and you have to love those kids any way that you can. They both have to be civil for the children’s sake. They are the kids and you are the adults. Hope everything goes smooth for her and her sweet children!

She’s has two lovely kids, Helena is so cute!

Mimi on

Considering what this family is going through with regards to the divorce, I wish she would keep her children private and not take publicity photos of her children. Promote Gossip Girl but for now shield her beautiful children.

Tiffany on

Kelly’s skin looks so radiant!! I am wondering what products she uses? Is it possible to attain that info. She is looking great, even with all the changes, and the kids are sooo sweet..

Becky on

Is Helena pronounced Helen-a or Ha-lay-na?

CelebBabyLover on

Mimi- Techincally, if Kelly was going to shield her kids, that would mean that she’d also have to avoid taking them out in public so that the paps couldn’t photograph them. Helena obviously is way too little to care about being able to go out of the house, but for Hermes, keeping him inside just to keep him shielded would be extremely unfair to him.

At his age, he needs, and probably wants, to be able to go on fun outtings from time to time.
