Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford isn't afraid to admit she's had a little Botox – and she doesn't think other celebs should be shy about it, either.

During the Saks Fifth Avenue Key to the Cure Charity Shopping event in New York Tuesday, the actress, 39, said she had Botox injected once before she got pregnant with her son, Hermés, who turns 2 on Saturday.

"I think it's beautiful that people are sharing," said Rutherford, noting that women should be honest about everything from childbirth to beauty secrets. "We sit around at lunch and ask each other [questions], so why not say we had postpartum, giving birth is hell but the children are amazing – and I get Botox."

She added, "I think there's a certain age that if you like having it, go for it."

As for whether she plans on getting more Botox in the future, Rutherford said she's avoiding the needle for now. "I decided I wasn't going to do it all again until I've had two kids and finished nursing them. Then it's a free for all."
