Kelly Rutherford wants her kids to be happy

Kelly Rutherford wants her children to be happy.

The former 'Gossip Girl' star recently lost a custody battle against her ex-husband Daniel Giersch over the care of their children, nine-year-old Hermes and six-year-old Helena and whilst she feels incredibly upset by the decision, she hopes it will be an example to others.

She told Romania's ELLE magazine: "Children need both parents. You do not want to make them suffer. I hope that this story be an example to others ... Now, I want them to be happy, to know that they are loved. No matter how long it takes this, I want them to know the truth.

"I know that if I find my peace, they will benefit ... talk about love because I hope that is what will make them stronger. When all this is over, I hope that they will look back and have the impression that it was not as bad as it was, actually. I do not want them to feel everything. There are good people and generous and funny. Perhaps activists will increase because of this situation. I hope that something good will come of it."

Meanwhile, the 47-year-old star previously revealed she wants to "do better".

A post on her Instagram read: "Dear world - we can do better and we will. That's All. And that's everything."
