James Van Der Beek & Wife Kimberly Secretly Welcome Sixth Child

James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly are new parents once again!

The 44-year-old actor revealed the happy news to fans in a cute Instagram post, showing off his newborn son, Jeremiah.

“Humbled and overjoyed to announce the safe, happy arrival of Jeremiah Van Der Beek ❤️,” James captioned in the video and picture slideshow.

He added that after he and Kimberly had experienced “late-term #pregnancyloss twice in a row (both at 17+ weeks), we kept this one quiet. Truthfully, I was terrified when I found out.”

“But we found a doctor here in Texas who diagnosed the last two as having been caused by an: ‘incompetent cervix’ (I asked him what kind of misogynistic old dude invented that term and he laughed – which made me like him even more. Now it’s called a #WeakenedCervix),” James continued. “A simple surgical cerclage was done, removed at full-term, @vanderkimberly gave birth naturally on the ranch… and here we are. The medical books say to only look at a cerclage as an option after three late-term losses. Our doctor recommends considering it after one. Spread the word.”

“Each child brings their own energy, their own manifestation of consciousness, their own lessons. The ones we lost each gifted us with different pieces of the puzzle… leaving us that much more grateful for the ongoing master class we get to enjoy with this sweet, wise little one.”

James and Kimberly are also parents to Olivia, 11, Joshua, 9, Annabel, 7, Emilia, 5, and Gwendolyn, 3.

The family moved to Texas during the pandemic.
