James Van Der Beek Is the Proud Dad of 5! Meet the ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Star’s Kids With Wife Kimberly

If there is one thing that makes James Van Der Beek most proud, it’s the role he plays as the dad of his five kids. The beloved Dawson’s Creek alum became a father for the first time in 2010 after he and Kimberly Brook welcomed their first child, Olivia Van Der Beek.

Since then, the 42-year-old hunk and his gorgeous wife have become the parents of five little bundle of joys. In 2013, James — who is also the dad of Joshua Van Der Beek, 7; Annabel Leah Van Der Beek, 5; Emilia Van Der Beek, 3; and Gwendolyn Van Der Beek, 1 — opened up about the transition of becoming a parent.

“I think fatherhood changes you from the inside out,” the Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 actor gushed to People at the time. “It’s not this thing where you think, ‘Oh, I have to be responsible, I have to take more on.’ You just want to, almost automatically.”
