Kelly Rutherford Didn't Notify Ex Until Baby Was Born

Does a Dad Deserve to Know That His Baby Is Being Born?

Does daddy deserve to know mama is headed to the delivery room? Due to relationship strains, many moms-to-be opt to labor without their ex present. That may have been the case earlier this week with actress Kelly Rutherford. The father of her two children —Hermes, 2, and baby Helena — Daniel Giersch issued this statement.

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 coparent both our children responsibly and with love.

Giersch said he was supposed to be informed by text or phone. Do you think a father should be informed that his offspring is on the way?
