James Van Der Beek Welcomed His 5th Child Just in Time for Father’s Day
James Van Der Beek celebrated Father’s Day in the most fitting way—by having another child.
The Dawson’s Creek alum announced that he and his wife, Kimberly, welcomed their fifth kid on Friday, June 15, and she has the cutest name: Gwendolyn. The proud dad shared an Instagram slideshow of the newborn spending some quality time with her family in honor of Father’s Day.
“Thrilled to announce we welcomed a brand new baby girl into the world Friday morning, just in time for #FathersDay….Oh, and @vanderkimberly—you’re a f**king earth goddess rock star and I’m as in awe of you as I am in love with you. And our new baby’s name is Gwendolyn. #HappyFathersDay everybody.”
Van Der Beek also explained that he has been spending his time as a new dad of five making smoothies for the family’s four other children—Olivia (7), Joshua (6), Annabel Leah (4) and Emilia (2)—and making his wife “raspberry leaf tea to ease her uterine contractions.” What a champ.
After tea time is over, the Van Der Beeks might want to look into swapping their family car out for a minibus. Just a thought.
