James Van Der Beek Opens Up About 'Drastic Changes' That Led His Family to Move Out of L.A.

James Van Der Beek and his family are enjoying their new life in Texas.

At the end of September, the 43-year-old Dawson’s Creek actor revealed that he, wife Kimberly, and their five kids – Olivia, 10, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2 – were moving out of Los Angeles for a new “big adventure” in Texas.

In a new Instagram post, James is opening up about his family’s decision to move.

“And… we’ve landed. In the last ten months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put @vanderkimberly in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favored to win in front of the whole world, and my mom died,” James wrote along with a few photos checking out the nature with his kids.

“And a shut-down,” James continued. “All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities… and landed us here. Overflowing with profound gratitude today.”
