"Kelly Rutherford is the best mom, on and off screen, and she deserves to have her kids back."

Posted on

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has been involved in an emotional custody battle over the past few years in an effort to bring her children back home to the U.S.

A U.S. judge ordered her two kids — Helena, 5, and Hermes, 8 — to live in France with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, who is barred from the U.S. due to a revoked work visa, ET reported.

Over the past few months, Rutherford has taken to social media to urge friends and fans to sign a petition asking The White House to help bring her children back:

Take a minute to sign the petition urging the White House to help bring @KellyRutherford's kids home: ❤️

And it's not just her fans who have been helping to spread the message — Rutherford's Gossip Girl co-stars have also been urging their followers to help the cause, including her on-screen husband, Rufus Humphrey:

And the one and only Chuck Bass:

Ed Westwick took to Twitter again today to help share Rutherford's message:

And even offered to follow fans who helped sign the petition:
