Melrose Place actress Kelly Rutherford, 37, and her businessman husband, Daniel Giersch, 32, welcomed their first child, a son, on Wednesday.

Hermés Gustaf Daniel Giersch was born at 8 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He weighed 8.5 lbs. and was 22 in. long.

After being in labor throughout the night, Rutherford is now resting comfortably at home with her baby. “We live so close to the hospital, we thought we could either hang out here and eat hospital food or go home and order take-out from La Scala,” she tells People magazine.

“We are all feeling good and I am so blissed out and tired,” she says. Being a new mom is “just amazing. It’s incredible to see these little beings.”

Rutherford is best known for her role as former hooker Megan Lewis Mancini on Melrose Place, and recently appeared as Samantha “Sonny” Liston on the NBC policital drama E-Ring.

    Maybe they’ll give the poor child a nickname like Bob. What’s the friggin’ deal with celebrities and their outlandish names? Talking about scarring a poor child for life.

    Ms. D. Not that i care about your feelings and i really don’t give a damn if you think I’m rude, but the “geez” was for his longer-than-hell, mouthful poor name that his idiot parents gave him (if you read my first comment you will see that). Dang you people really need to stop taking every little word so personally. Why are you all so defensive? PMS?

    Well I can READ it now.

    So, ‘JEEZ’, when I first saw this article, it was an H with a bunch of ‘symbols’ on it..@ and stuff.
    No need to be rude about it.

    But I’m with you, Doh..I mean, maybe they are foreign or something and have chosen an ethnic name as such..but Hermes is certainly an off the wall name!

    My question is, WHAT is his name??

    I got the ‘Gustaf Daniel’..but can’t read the first thing that was written…..
