Kelly Rutherford

Spends a Nice Holiday

with Her Kids in France

EXCLUSIVE

0903_rutherford_launch
Despite her crushing blow in family court recently, Kelly Rutherford was all smiles as she arrived in Nice, France to visit her two kids ... and TMZ has the photos.

As TMZ first reported, the "Gossip Girl" star was devastated after a judge ruled that her ex husband, Daniel Giersch, was allowed to keep their two young children living with him in France 50% of the time.

Kelly told friends afterwards she plans to challenge the ruling -- arguing that the difficult travel will make quality time with her children virtually impossible.

But on Sunday she looked happy as a clam when she arrived in Nice Airport with her brother ... while her kids greeted her with balloons and an awesome sign that said, "Welcome Super Mama."

Her ex was there too ... holding Hello Kitty balloons.

Très awkward.

if the kids are happy and are being brought up well let it stay like this and traveling will not be difficult because they have arrangements for her to come and plus hes paying for it so i think it worked out well and a judge can make your life really painful if they want to be so consider your self lucky

If mom had custody and dad came to the US to visit his kids. He would be catching a limo or a cab to his room and calling her voice mail to see when he could see the kids. I see he went all out for this b!tch. Using the super mom posters. That's why he's the primary custodial parent. He can atleast fake giving a damn in the best interest of the children.

So did you stalked her to France? or did you pay for the photos from another source?

FYI to those that are too stupid to know the case. He is NOT the primary custodial parent, they have 50/50 custody. He is not allowed back in the U.S because he had his VISA revoked permanently by the US government for fraud. She will have the kids in the US for half the year, and he has them in France for half the year. He is also persona non grata in his own homeland of Germany for fraud as well. Yeah, super guy!

Just think - if she had been more civil to her ex and obeyed the court's orders by not keeping them away from him, she wouldn't be in this mess.

Why is it unfair that traveling would prevent 'her' from spending quality time with her kids but somehow the reversed would be fair towards the kids father? How is that argument going to work in court??

Get used to it, honey. You'll never get your kids back in the U.S. Get used to traveling to France.
