Matthew Setlle wordt voor tweede keer vader

Kelly Rutherford liet tijden een event weten dat Matthew Settle samen met zijn vriendin een kind verwachten. Matthew heeft al een zes-jarige dochter met zijn ex-vrouw.

Matthew Settle and his longtime girlfriend Maria Alfonsin are expecting a baby together!

The happy news was spilled by the 45-year-old actor’s former Gossip Girl co-star Kelly Rutherford.

Kelly was listing off celebs that will be attending her charity event next month in an interview with Us Weekly.

“Marcia Cross, Ed Westwick, Vivica Fox, Selma Blair, and Lisa Rinna are all hosting. And Marianne Williamson and Lisa Bloom are speaking,” Kelly said. “I’m hoping Matthew can make it. He’s getting ready to have a baby, so I don’t know… His loss!”

This is the second child for Matthew. He shares a six-year-old daughter with his ex-wife, model Naama Nativ. They split back in February 2010.


Leighton & Adam verwachten eerste kind

Gossip Girl-ster Leighton Meester en haar man Adam Brody verwachten hun eerste kindje.

De 29-jarige actrice/zangeres werd afgelopen weekend in Los Angeles met een babybuikje op de gevoelige plaat vastgelegd.

Leighton, die in de populaire serie Gossip Girl de rol van Blair speelde, heeft nooit een geheim gemaakt van haar kinderwens. Toen haar collega Blake Lively vorig jaar zwanger raakte, liet ze weten dat het bij haar ook begon te kriebelen.

Voor Meester en Brody wordt dit hun eerste kindje. Het stel gaf elkaar vorig jaar februari in het geheim het jawoord.


Kelly vraagt fans petitie te tekenen om kinderen terug te krijgen

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has turned to friends and fans in an effort to get her two children – Helena, 5, and Hermes, 8 – back to America after losing them in a custody battle to her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch. (Giersch lives in France with the kids, but he is not permitted to enter to the U.S. due to a revoked work visa, according to Entertainment Tonight.)

Rutherford has sought support on social media, and her former Gossip Girl co-stars Ed Westwick and Matthew Settle have asked their fans to help, too. Kris Jenner brought Rutherford’s story to Kim Kardashian’s attention, and Westwick called on YouTube sensation Tyler Oakley to make the final push to obtain signatures for the petition.

As of early Wednesday morning, the We the People petition gained 100,000 signatures, thus warranting White House review.

“I just want to thank every single one of you that signed and shared the petition!” Rutherford wrote on Twitter. “I am so blessed to have your support! #wedidit”

The petition can be found here.


Kelly Rutherford in tranen over voogdijzaak

Gossip Girl-actrice Kelly Rutherford hield het deze week niet droog. Ze liet donderdag haar tranen de vrije loop in een paneldiscussie met andere moeders.
De actrice begon onlangs een petitie waarin ze de Amerikaanse overheid oproept haar kinderen weer in de Verenigde Staten te laten wonen. Sinds haar scheiding van Daniel Giersch in 2010 wonen haar twee kinderen Helena (5) en Hermés (8) bij hem in Monaco.

Tijdens een ontbijt in het kader van Moederdag vroeg een mede-panellid de 150 moeders in de zaal de petitie ook te ondertekenen. Volgens een bron van New York Post barstte de 46-jarige actrice hierop in tranen uit. “Ze was hier zo dankbaar voor”, zegt de bron.

Kelly over wat haar kinderen weten van haar voogdij-zaak

Kelly is na de beslissing van de rechter dat haar twee kinderen bij haar ex-man in Frankrijk moeten weten, nog steeds hard bezig om voor hun te vechten. Ze laat in het onderstaande interview met People weten hoe dit verloopt en wat haar kinderen hiervan mee krijgen.

Since 2012, Kelly Rutherford has been living a mother’s worst nightmare: being separated from her children.

Because their German father had his U.S. work visa revoked, a judge ruled that Rutherford’s two children, Hermes, 8, and Helena, 5, should leave the country to live with him in France, even though the ex-couple shares joint custody.

(In 2012, a source told PEOPLE that Rutherford is the reason his visa was revoked because she claimed he was illegally dealing drugs and weapons. Rutherford staunchly denied having anything to do with it in an interview with PEOPLE last month.)

Rutherford hasn’t stopped fighting to bring her kids home since the judge’s ruling, and she recently started a White House petition she calls “a cry for help.”

“I really don’t have a choice except to reach out to political people at this point and ask for help,” Rutherford told PEOPLE at the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children’s Gala for Child Protection on Thursday night. “I’m an American mother who had a very unjust thing happen in my own country, what does this say about the future of all American children that this can happen?”

While celebs including Cindy Crawford, Debra Messing, Chace Crawford, and Ed Westwick have reached out in support of Rutherford, the former Gossip Girl and Melrose Place actress is doing her best to help her children cope amidst the “pressure.”

“It is not so much about time spent as it is the bond that you have with your children. We’ve been separated and taken away from each other, and we just appreciate every second,” Rutherford told PEOPLE, saying she visits them as often as possible.

“We just sit back and look at each other and take each other in. For hours we could just sit there because the love is so strong and the bond is so strong,” she continued.

When she can’t be with them, Rutherford says her ex “is always listening in on every Skype, every phone call. It’s challenging in that way.”

But in her precious private time with Hermes and Helena, Rutherford gets hints at what they know of the custody battle and the circumstances keeping them away from their mother.

“I don’t want them to feel it’s wrong. They know in their hearts it is, because they say, ‘Mommy, this isn’t fair’ and ‘Are you still fighting for us?’ When I’m there with them and it’s just us they say things that he says to them and they have questions,” Rutherford said.

Rutherford encourages the siblings to deal with the confusing situation by focusing on their mother’s unconditional love.

“I think the important thing for all children is that they know they’re loved beyond measure and they know that Mommy loves them like crazy. That’s the priority,” she said.

Luckily, Rutherford believes her kids aren’t overly occupied by the custody drama. Having had divorced parents herself, she does her best to hide her distress for their sake.

“My parents went through a divorce, and I remember when my mom was having a tough time it was hard for me, so I do my best to stay positive to them so that they stay super healthy,” Rutherford explained. “They’re in school most of the time thankfully, so they aren’t thinking about this and dealing with this on a day to day basis in the same way that the adults are.”

When she communicates with the children’s father, German businessman Daniel Giersch, Rutherford says she is only met with threats.

“I don’t talk to him that often. I do my best to be very positive but I feel like there is always a trap being set,” she said.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Giersch’s lawyer said he will not comment on the ongoing battle or Rutherford’s claims.

“Daniel Giersch continues to protect the children from any negativity, and therefore will continue to not engage in any of these unfortunate and false media fabrications which only serve one person but clearly not the children,” the statement read.

Since her kids moved overseas, Rutherford has found solace in activism aimed at changing the laws that made the judge’s ruling possible.

“You need to feel engaged, like you’re being effective, like you’re doing something about it, it gets you up in the morning,” Rutherford said about why she is an advocate for children’s causes.

Currently, Rutherford’s White House petition is in need of 45,000 more signatures to elicit a response from the administration.


Blake over moederschap, boek en studie aan Harvard!

Blake heeft een interview gehad met Stylist.co.uk. Hierin praat ze over het moederschap, schrijven van een boek en de droom om ooit aan Harvard te studeren!

The sound of a baby crying fills the suite of the swish Four Seasons hotel, blankets and baby paraphernalia are strewn everywhere and the interview is taking place between breastfeeding sessions. Stylist is meeting Blake Lively as she prepares for the release of her new film, The Age Of Adaline although three-and-a-half-month- old daughter James with actor husband Ryan Reynolds, is fast becoming the main event.

As you’d expect for a new mother, Lively, 27, is sleep deprived. “I am definitely getting sleepless nights,” she explains. “But you get a little more used to it as time goes on.” Although, you’d have no idea. The blonde hair that spawned a million, “Can you just make my hair look like that please?” conversations with put-upon hairdressers is just as super-powered as when she played Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. She’s wearing a pink patterned dress she co-designed with fashion label, Amour Vert, for her lifestyle website, Preserve, with her Charlotte Olympia kitty flats lying on the floor next to her.

Preserve, launched last summer, is part lifestyle blog, part online store selling artisan clothes and homeware (in a similar vein to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop). Running a business – Lively is involved in everything from photography to raising capital for the site – while maintaining her day job as an actress is a bold move and proof she can’t be pigeonholed. In fact, she’s recently been named the most powerful Hollywood & Entertainment star in the prestigious Forbes Under 30 list. There’s definitely something of the Martha Stewart – who Lively idolised as a child – about her.

Born and raised in LA, Lively now lives with Reynolds in New York, the setting, of course, of Gossip Girl. Since the cult teen series, there’s been serious film parts in Ben Affleck’s drama The Town and Oliver Stone’s Savages. Right now Lively takes the lead in The Age Of Adaline, playing a widowed mother born in 1908 who becomes immortal after a freak accident in the Thirties. The film is a Pinterest board’s dream as Lively moves through the decades.

With James now asleep, Lively diverts her full attention to Stylist. And she talks about Hillary Clinton, truffle pasta and her plans to go to Harvard…
