James Van Der Beek Welcomes Baby Boy
If Dawson's Creek ever gets a new spin-off, Dawson's Crib would make a great title. Former teen heartthrob James Van Der Beek, 35, and wife Kimberly welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday — their second child and first son.
Van Der Beek made the announcement on Twitter. "Had my first son this morning… well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain…," he tweeted, adding that the feeling was pure and positive. "If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there'd be no more war. #fatherhood"
Married in August 2010, the couple produced baby Olivia about a month afterward. Their son's name has not yet been announced.
Van Der Beek, whose post-Creek credits include Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Franklin & Bash, will next appear in the made-for-TV movie Salem Falls and the ABC show “Don’t Trust the B**** in Apt. 23," which premieres April 11.
