‘Gossip Girl’ Mom Kelly Rutherford Had Baby Practice With Her Dog

Gossip Girl actress Kelly Rutherford certainly had practice before her kids, Hermes and Helena came along. She had practice with her pet pooch!

“[The kids] love him,” she tells OK!“It’s perfect timing because he was a little bit older when I had kids, so he was much more calm. He got so much attention when he was a puppy – he was kind of my first child. It was good practice. Now, he’s calm, he gets it, and his pace is the same as ours. I used to throw the ball for hours for him. For hours. He had a lot of energy. Now he’s at our pace –good with the kids. He’s great. He sets boundaries. He doesn’t let them jump all over him, but he is totally sweet with them.”

“He protects my kids, he’s with us all the time,” Kelly adds of their now 15-year-old pet. “He keeps the house calm and loving.”
