The Van Der Beek family feel very grateful this Thanksgiving week.
Monday, November 22, James van der beek, 44, confirmed on Instagram that his wife Kimberly Van Der Beek, 39, welcomed a baby boy named Jeremiah, which is already nicknamed Remi.
“After suffering late #pregnancy loss twice in a row (both at 17 weeks and over), we kept this one silent,” the Dawson Creek star shared with his followers. “Really, I was terrified when I found out.”
James continued, “We found a doctor here in Texas who diagnosed the latter two as having been caused by an: ‘incompetent cervix’ (I asked him what kind of misogynistic old dude coined that term and he laughed, which made me love him even more. Now it’s called a weakened #Cervix). “
According to James, a “simple” surgical banding was done and eventually removed. His wife was finally able to give birth naturally on their Texas ranch.
