Her ex-husband was recently awarded custody of her two children, leaving her with no other option than to fly from America to Monaco to see them.


But the Gossip Girl star surprised the crowd on Saturday, as her little ones - Helena, three, and Hermes, six - arrived with her to a charity event in the Hamptons, New York.


Kelly left Daniel Giersch in 2009 while pregnant with their second child after the German businessman’s visa was revoked, and a judge awarded him custody of the children last year.


She previously claimed that she is forced to live with a friend while she continues to fight for her children to reside with her in New York.


Her children appear to want to be with their 44-year-old mother just as much, unable to hide their smiles as they arrived nestled in her arms.
