James Van Der Beek's Wife Kimberly Suffers Another Miscarriage - Read His Emotional Post

James Van Der Beek has announced the devastating news that his wife Kimberly has suffered another miscarriage.

The couple previously went through a very public miscarriage in November 2019 while he was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. This is her fifth miscarriage in nine years.

James and Kimberly decided not to be public about their pregnancy this time around, but sadly they lost the baby at 17 weeks into the pregnancy.

“After suffering a brutal, very public miscarriage last November, we were overjoyed to learn we were pregnant. This time, we kept the news to ourselves. But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in… the soul we’d been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body,” James wrote on Instagram.

“We rushed @vanderkimberly to the hospital by ambulance for another harrowing night of blood transfusions. And as I stood by, grateful for the good people who navigated the maze of regulations to save her life – but helpless to do much for the woman I loved other than massage her feet and try to keep her warm (with my #DWTS robe, ironically) – something kept running through my head, again and again, which I now feel compelled to share: We’ve got to take better care of each other,” he added.

“The world is in pain right now. There’s denial, shock, numbness, anger – all the old patterns we cling to when deep trauma is unearthed. And there are no words to ease that pain… to make the process hurt less or to solve it quickly. But the way out of it? Starts with an open, broken-hearted contemplation of this question: How can we take better care of each other?” James said. “And to all the families who have gone through this… you are not alone. 🌈.”

James and Kimberly are the parents of five children – Olivia, 9, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2.

Kelly Rowland Rocks Red Gloves For 'Bad Hair' Premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2020

Kelly Rowland adds a cool pop of red to her look for the premiere of Bad Hair during 2020 Sundance Film Festival at The Ray on Thursday night (January 23) in Park City, Utah.

The 38-year-old singer and actress stars in the new film opposite James Van Der Beek, Michelle Hurd, Jay Pharoah, Elle Lorraine, Ashley Blaine and more for the event, which shines a light on black hair.

During an interview with Variety, Kelly opened up about a moment she shared with her son, Titan, that relates to the flick.

“I come downstairs and my son’s like, ‘Mommy, I really love your hair.’ And I said, ‘Thank you baby.’ And it was just interesting… because I think it was his first time seeing me receive like, you know, my natural hair.”

She added, “It’s beautiful and it looks effortless and that’s what we wanted… It made it look easy, and I think that for so long we were told as black women, ‘Well, I don’t know what to do with that,’ or ‘This is hard.’ It’s always a scrunched face or a complaint when it comes to taking care of our natural hair and this was a new easy solution.”

Bad Hair centers on an ambitious young woman, who in 1989, gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career may come at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own.

FYI: James wore a Falconeri sweater.
