James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly, are currently expecting their fifth child together. The Dawson’s Creek alum and Kim are the parents of Olivia, Joshua, Annabel, and Emilia, who are 7, 5, 4, and one respectively.
In an Instagram post pictured below, Kim can be seen surrounded by her loving children who appear to be fascinated by her growing baby bump. The 40-year-old actor wrote, “thrilled beyond relief to announce that we are once again adding to our family.”
Van Der Beek wrote on on his social media page that he and his wife, while some may think it’s crazy to have kids, are stoked to be making the fifth addition to their already extensive family.
Van Der Beek said, “I couldn’t be more excited” and “grateful.” Some of James’ co-stars commended the pair on the delightful news including the ex-wife of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes.
The 39-year-old, who is currently dating Jamie Foxx, wrote, “Wow. Congratulations!” Mary-Margaret Humes, the woman who played James’ mother on the popular series created by Warner Brothers, said, “like, I was just saying to you.”
As you may know, James and the producer, 33, started dating back in July of 2009 and got married in August of 2010, just one year after beginning their relationship.
At the time of their wedding, Van Der Beek wrote he was honored to announce his fiancée became his wife on that day.
Sources close to the couple stated, “their wedding was fabulous and they couldn’t have looked happier together. Everyone in the family is so happy that they’re having a lot of kids because they both always wanted to have a big family.”
