Dawson is a dad!

James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly Brook, are the proud parents of Olivia Van Der Beek, they announced last night.

“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,” he wrote on his Twitter, adding, “I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. “I’m under her spell…”

James and Kelly married over the summer in Israel. This is the first child for both.

    “James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly Brook…” then the last paragraph there’s “James and Kelly married over the summer…”

    I’m confused – is his wife’s name Kimberly or Kelly? Whatever it is, congratulations to them both on the birth of their daughter.

    @Lucky Charm: His wife’s name is Kimberly. JJ got it wrong in the last sentence. And yeah, Olivia is a nice name – so nice I want to name my first daughter that (assuming I have one). Hope the girl looks like her mother though, her father isn’t an attractive man at all.

    @Lucky Charm: Well, there does seem to be some debate about just who, in fact, is Suri’s biological father. And Suri does resemble Josh quite a lot… so… it depends on what you’re willing to believe, I guess.
