Kelly Rutherford: Trying to Keep It Positive for the Kids

Expectant Kelly Rutherford has spent the last several months facing off against her estranged husband, German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, in court over the custody of their two-year-old son, Hermes. The Gossip Girl is trying to keep a positive outlook on the situation for the sake of their children.

"It's a challenge," said the actress. "When [the battle] is in the public, it's really hard."

Rutherford files for divorce last year and was just given permission to take Hermes to New York until the end of the Gossip Girl film schedule in March.

"People say things they don't mean because they're upset," Rutherford adds. "So I'm hoping we can work it out. We have kids together. We have a beautiful son together. I think we're both decent people. When you have kids, you have to keep it together somehow. You have to try to keep it together."

The couple are currently expecting their second child. One positive sign in their relations -- they may have agreed on a name together. She reveals, "We talked about a name that we both like."

Going through a difficult divorce while expecting and taking care of of a two-year-old has been challenging for this working mom. She admits, "I mean, it's different at 40, with the 2-year old running around. But I'm very thankful I feel very blessed."
