Rutherford's Husband 'Sickened' After Reading Baby News Online

KELLY RUTHERFORD's estranged husband DANIEL GIERSCH is "sickened" he wasn't notified when the GOSSIP GIRL star gave birth - because he only learned he was a new dad after reading the news online.
The couple has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their son Hermes, two, since filing for divorce in 2008 - when Rutherford was pregnant with Helena Grace, the daughter she welcomed on Monday (08Jun09).
The German entrepreneur maintains he was never alerted of the birth - although he insists Rutherford had agreed to contact him by phone when she went into labour.
And he was left stunned after reading Internet reports that alleged he had turned down the chance to see the new arrival in hospital.
Giersch says in a statement, "Media reports claiming that I neglected to attend my daughter's birth are total lies and fabrication.
"I was never informed by Kelly about the birth of our daughter, nor was I invited to attend. In fact, I found out about it through Internet reports like everyone else. Although this sickens me, I am of course overjoyed that our baby was born healthy.
"I would've wanted nothing more than to hold our newborn daughter for a few moments, and I only seek to co-parent both our children responsibly and with love."
Rutherford's publicist Jill Fritzo insists Giersch had been asked to come see the baby, saying, "The doctors advised that no one be in the birthing room; (Daniel) was notified when (Helena) was born and was immediately invited to come see her."
