Joshua Van Der Beek: James Van Der Beek's Son!

James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly have named their son Joshua!

The couple, who welcomed the baby boy earlier this month, revealed the name on Kelly‘s new blog for People‘s Moms & Babies section.

“This new life has brought about new joys,” she wrote in her first post. “It’s hard to top hearing your baby’s heartbeat for the first time, finally holding them in your arms and nursing them, or trying to cook while they’re hanging from your legs.”

Joshua is the family’s latest addition and joins older sis Olivia.

    That is def a strange pick. He work with Joshua for such a long time and then names his kid with the same name…

    Every time I see JVB’s head all I can think is “ouch!” I hope his babies get their mama’s head size. For her sake and theirs.

    How sweet naming his son after his awesome friend Joshua Jackson! Ok, that may not be the exact reason behind the name but it’s what I will believe.

    When I read what they’d named their son, I laughed. After all the reports of how much James and Joshua Jackson did NOT get along, I’m stunned James would agree to name his son Joshua.

    Now all I can think of is FRINGE whenever I read about Olivia (also the name of the female lead character on Fringe) and Joshua (Jackson, star of Fringe). It’s all very amusing to me. I just wonder if James ever honestly thought one day he’d name his kid Joshua?

    Also, it’s so obvious these two are desperate for attention. They didn’t reveal their son’s name on twitter as they did with Olivia, as obviously they had an “exclusive” deal with People Magazine and now his wife is writing a ‘column’ for the mag.

    I think JVDB is still mighty insecure, despite a new show on the way, he’s still doing everything he can to sell his family to the press.

    Finally! A celeb that gives their kid a normal name. I think that Joshua is one of the cutest names for a boy.
    This may be a little off topic, but his wife looks just like Jessica Chastain!
