Dawson’s a daddy!
Former Dawson’s Creek actor James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly Brook welcomed the arrival of a baby daughter, Olivia, on Saturday.
“Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend… Couldn’t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters,” James beamed in a Tweet announcing the news.
“Olivia Van Der Beek, born 9/25. I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell…” he added, later joking: “If I watch football w/ my daughter now, she’ll like the sounds of the NFL & want to watch it w/ me when she’s older. (sic)”
Van Der Beek and Brook married last month after James’ first marriage — to actress Heather McComb –ended in divorce after six years. Olivia is the couple’s first child together.
