The actress filed for divorce from Daniel Giersch in December 2008 while she was pregnant with their second child, and the couple subsequently became embroiled in a bitter custody fight over their two kids.
But the 41 year old is moving on from the split – she is reportedly dating an old pal.
A source tells E! Online, “Kelly has known him for years. They are old friends, she really trusts him, and she feels like he is exactly the opposite of her ex-husband.”
Her spokesperson has confirmed the news but declines to identify Rutherford’s beau: “Kelly does indeed have a new man in her life, but that’s all we’re sharing for now.”
