James Van Der Beek: First Pic of Daughter Olivia!

Check out this photo of James Van Der Beek, his wife Kimberly Brook, and their adorable daughter Olivia!

“We were one of those couples who was all about natural birth. We had the right doctor, we had the right doula and the right nurse at the hospital,” the 33-year-old actor, who welcomed the little girl in September, told People.

Kimberly did it as naturally as she could, but at the end of the day we were very glad we were in the hospital,” he added.

James said they picked the name because “she looked like an Olivia.” Plus, “there’s an olive tree in Israel that’s special to us.”

    Baby they have baby?

    @Whatever: In some European countries there is also a custom to put a red bracelet on a newborn baby. But I suppose the bracelet on this baby has something to do with Kabballah. At least they didn’t give her a weird name.

  • Go

    Cute baby.Nice traditional,common sense name.
    the Kabablah brecelt of string,odd. Hollyweird couple making apoint jumping on bandwagon.Dangerous to put a string on a infant.

    “there’s an olive tree in Israel that’s special to us.”

    The stupidity never ends! Keep idiocy alive, man, keep it alive!

  • LALA

    Poor Dawson. Joey STILL gets all of the attention. Even Jen gets more publicity than him. He’s got to find SOME way to keep up with his alimony payments!!

  • Madhatter

    I think his wife is absolutely beautiful.
    Bracelet freaks me out a little bit, though.

  • losers….

    What a sellout!!! He’s obviously desperate for cash. This isn’t like an A-list star that sells the photos to keeps the paps from scrambling for the first photos.
    …and look at someone like Michelle Williams. She could make millions selling Heath’s child to magazines, but she has way too much real love for her child. I can’t picture Josh ever doing this either. The only time you see Josh or Michelle posing for the cameras is when it’s work related (for Josh that means for Diane’s work, too).
    James and Katie seem to be complete fame wh**es. Sad sad sad…

  • Emma

    Adorable baby! I wish them the best, they’re a beautiful young couple.

  • mattchew

    woo hoo! another celebrity kid for Just Jared to exploit!

  • Butter_Fly

    Cute baby! Love the diaper! I hope they don’t leave that bracelet on her and just put it on for the photo. What if it comes lose?

  • angelina

    Wait JVDB is jew? Or is another kabbalah member?
    ok for olive tree in Israel but hey, there are olive trees everywhere loool


    COME ON !!!
    What a kiss-ass !!!
    He knows Jews run Hollywood and that’s why he entered Kabbalah.
    This way he hopes the Jewish studio- bosses will think he’s part of their tribe and will reward him with good parts.
    I’m convinced if Hollywood was run by Buddhists he would have joined a Buddhist sect. He has the same career-strategy than Katie Holmes with Scientology : joining a powerful group in hopes of being favoured and privileged.
    I guess he used this Jewish networking strategy from the beginning of his career because there is NO WAY such a fugly guy would get the lead role in a teenage-series like Dawson’s creek. NO WAY.
    An influential Hollywood big boss certainly pushed his name on top of the list at the time.

    Adorable baby

    @losers….: Spot on, I agree completely.
