Kimberly Van Der Beek Reveals The Names of Her & James Van Der Beek's Unborn Sons

Kimberly Van Der Beek has reflected on her two miscarriages during a recent Instagram Live.

The 38-year-old wife of James Van Der Beek opened up about suffering the miscarriages at just 17 weeks along, the first time late last year, and the following one just this spring.

“I was told I was gonna have the [first] miscarriage a few minutes before it happened; I was told I was gonna have to go to the hospital a few minutes before they had to make a decision,” she shared in her video.

Kimberly went on, revealing that she had buried both of her unborn sons in a “mama plant,” which is a passion-fruit vine that she had recently procured.

“So we have two fetuses in our mama plant, and we named them John and Zachariah,” she says. “And so John and Zachariah are buried in the mama plant, and I decided today to have an artist make some sort of wood structure that I’ll put the mama plant in the earth [underneath], and so she can grow up around it.”

Kimberly continued on, “The cool thing is I had this whole spiritual awakening that happened and the next day, mama plant had her first flower. It was really wild.”

The couple share five children together – Olivia, Joshua, Annabel, Emilia and Gwendolyn.

James and Kimberly just recently moved from Los Angeles to Texas and opened up about the reason why.
