James Van Der Beek is going to be a dad again! The actor’s wife, Kimberly Van Der Beek, is pregnant with their third child, she announced today.
“James and I are happy to report that we are expecting our third child this winter!” the self-proclaimed “professional mom” wrote on her blog. “Nesting mode is starting to kick in. I’ve been getting rid of clutter, reconfiguring rooms, reorganizing EVERYTHING, etc…My mind doesn’t stop.”
The couple have been married since 2010, and already have two children, daughter Olivia, 2, and son Joshua, 17 months.
“All the craziness, exhaustion, and moodiness aside, James and I are beyond elated and feeling so incredibly blessed,” Kimberly wrote. “Olivia and Joshua are in on the news and seem to be excited about a baby coming into the family.”
She also wrote a note to her husband, “James, thank you for being the loving, caring, and understanding husband and father that you are.”
James, 36, loves being a father. “He’s amazing…He’s a real guy,” she told US Weekly in May. “He’s very manly and sexy, and he’s also got this sensitive side to him that [makes] him a great husband, a great dad. He’s an honest guy.”
“James is very, very hands-on,” she continued. “People would be really surprised. He wakes up at night with the kids. He gives me breaks. He wakes up in the morning with them. He makes pancakes on Sundays.”
“The pancakes I make are gluten-free,” the Don’t Trust the B actor clarified. “They are gluten-free banana pancakes with blueberries. I’ve been making them only since I’ve had kids…I can’t even put the joy I have being a dad into words. I really can’t.”
