Kelly Rutherford

Another prime-time-soap-worthy plot twist for Kelly Rutherford.

The 40-year-old Gossip Girl actress, who happens to be expecting her second child, has filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Daniel Giersch, her rep confirms to E! News.

Rutherford cited the most cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, which didn't seem imminent last month when she was talking about how her spouse was helping her prepare their 2-year-old son, Hermes Gustaf Giersch, for the arrival of a little sibling. (View the documents)

"My husband actually found some really cute books about explaining to your kid about the baby that's coming and the mommy being pregnant and what goes on with the mommy and then what happens when you bring the baby home," Rutherford told People.

Rutherford also spent five months being married to first husband Carlos Tarajano before they divorced in January 2002.
