Hey, it’s only normal to dream big when you’re 3 years old — that’s why little Hermés thinks he can be a superhero!

Don’t you just love it when your kids tell you their crazy, grand ideas? Gossip Girl star and mother of two (son Hermés, 3, and daughter Helena, 14 months), Kelly Rutherford, thinks it’s simply adorable! “My son comes up with things and I just wonder where he gets it,” the 41-year-old actress told HollywoodLife.com exclusively Aug. 27 at the US Open Player Party at the Empire Hotel in NYC. Just recently, “He said, ‘Well, Mommy, I’m here to change the world!'”

“And I said, ‘Oh, really?” Kelly explained. “We all looked at him like, ‘What are you talking about?’ It was pretty extraordinary.”

Kelly thinks the idea came from her son’s favorite TV show, Go Diego Go!, whose lead character is an animal rescuer.

Hermés is “into heroes — Superman and Spiderman,” Kelly added. “I think he’s getting this idea that maybe he can be a superhero and do something to change the world. He’s jumping on the sofa [trying to] fly. He’s [also] into the Wonder Twins‘ powers. That’s a new thing he really wants — to activate his Wonder Twins power.”

“He’s at the age where literally every day it’s something new,” the proud mom said. “I think it’s a good message!”
