'Gossip Girl' Star

I Spied for My Son

5/22/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a move straight out of the Bart Bass playbook, "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford hired a detective to videotape her ex -- but today outside court, she insisted it was only to check in on "my son's safety."

Rutherford hired the private eye to prove her ex, Daniel Giersch, didn't properly secure the pool and play areas at his home -- which she said endangered the couple's 2-year-old son Hermes. She also wanted Daniel to stop potty training the kid.

The judge ordered Giersch to properly cover the pool -- and today in court Daniel proved that had been done. As for the toilet talk, Hermes will continue to use pull-ups and can use a toilet if he so chooses.

Breastfeeding a 6 year old!!! My 6 year old is in 1st grade! She is reading chapter books and doing long addition. I can't imagine her breastfeeding!!!!!

I also have a two year old that IS potty trained already. He is my last "little baby" but I can't imagine holding him back from being a "big kid".

Breastfeeding at 2 isn't weird, and I don't see how she can force her son to do it - the child still has to latch on. About the potty training a 2 year old isn't necessarily ready, our eldest daughter wasn't til nearly 3, depite us trying her earlier, while our youngest is pretty much trained at 2 yrs and 4 months. I beleive that boys tend to be ready to potty train later than girls as well.
