'Gossip Girl' Mom Expecting Second Child


Kelly Rutherford is catching up to her alter ego, Lily van Der Woodsen.

The "Gossip Girl" star and her businessman husband, Daniel Giersch, are expecting their second child in June, reports Usmagazine.com.

The couple have a 2-year-old son, Hermes Gustaf Daniel Geirsch, whom she brings to the set of The CW soap often.

"We have such a nice set because people bring their kids and their dogs," she says. "It looks like we're running a doggy daycare in the makeup room, it's really something."

Rutherford, 40, was briefly married to Carlos Tarajano in 2001. Their marriage lasted less than seven months. She later married Giersch in August 2006.

Rutherford currently plays Lily van Der Woodsen, mother to Serena (Blake Lively) and Eric (Connor Paolo), on "Gossip Girl." She's also known for playing ex-hooker Megan Lewis Mancini on "Melrose Place" from 1996-1999.
