At the end of a long week which has, unfortunately, been filled with sad news, it’s always nice to share some positive vibes with the arrival of new life – and we have much-loved actor James Van Der Beek to thank for this morning’s story.


The former Dawson’s Creek star has become a father for the fourth time, after wife Kimberly gave birth to a daughter earlier this week.


Taking to Instagram to announce the news, the CSI:Cyber star confirmed that the latest addition to his family is a daughter named Emilia, who was born on Wednesday, March 23.



James uploaded a stunning photo of Kimberly gazing adoringly at her newborn, along with her other three children: five-year-old Olivia, four-year-old Joshua, and two-year-old Annabel.


“Happy to share that two days ago, Kimberly and I were lucky enough to welcome a little baby girl into the world…Emilia Van Der Beek. Crazy how deeply in love you can fall with someone you just met,” gushed the 39-year-old.


What a beautiful dedication – and what a stunning choice of name!



The couple, who have been married for almost six years, announced their lovely pregnancy news back in November.


Congratulations to the family on their wonderful news.
