James Van Der Beek makes a surprise announcement during ‘DWTS’
On Monday’s Dancing With the Stars James Van Der Beek revealed that he and wife Kimberly are expecting their sixth child. While we do not know the gender of the new baby, the couple currently has four girls and a boy.
James also opened up about their past pregnancy troubles. “We’ve had five kids and three miscarriages,” the actor said. “Miscarriage is something that people don’t really talk about, and we wanted to recognize that it happens to people. We wanted to destigmatize that as much as we possibly could.“
The former Dawson’s Creek star even shared the moment he and his wife first heard the baby’s heartbeat. After listening to the baby’s heartbeat, an emotional James said, “Hearing the heartbeat was something you never take for granted.“
James also announced the good news on his instagram page. His Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 103 costar Krysten Ritter commented, “Omg I’m DEAD!!! This is the most exciting news!!!”

Thrilled beyond belief to announce that another little bundle of joy has picked us to be their family. We chose to have our first ultrasound on camera with our #DWTS crew capturing the result – something I NEVER thought we’d ever do… but @vanderkimberly and I have been through three of those first appointments to discover either no heartbeat, or no baby, and she wanted to share this moment. Miscarriage (a word that needs a replacement – nobody failed to “carry”, these things sometimes just happen) is something that people rarely talk about, and often go through in secret. But there needs to be zero shame around it, or around giving yourself the time and space to grieve. We decided to put ourselves out there – not knowing what we’d find – in an effort to chip away at any senseless stigma around this experience and to encourage people who might be going through it to open themselves up to love & support from friends and family when they need it most. Happily, for us – this time- we walked out with tears of joy. #AndThenIDancedAQuickStep. • Pic by @jilliangoulding
