James Van Der Beek has a Little Boy


Dawson is a dad! (for the second time.)

James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly welcomed their second child – a baby boy – on Tuesday morning.

The proud father announced the big news via Twitter:

“Had my first son this morning… well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain,” he wrote. “If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there’d be no more war. #fatherhood”

The baby joins big sister Olivia, who is 17 months old. 

It’s going to be a busy few months for Van Der Beek, 35, who will soon be returning to TV with his new series – the interestingly named “Don’t Trust the B– in Apt. 23,” which debuts in April on ABC.

Hope he’s able to balance diaper duty with his day job!
