James Van Der Beek's brood is getting bigger! The actor's wife, Kimberly Van Der Beek, is pregnant with the couple's third child, she announced on her blog on Friday, Aug. 30.
"James and I are happy to report that we are expecting our third child this winter!" the self-proclaimed "professional mom" wrote. "Nesting mode is starting to kick in. I've been getting rid of clutter, reconfiguring rooms, reorganizing EVERYTHING, etc...My mind doesn't stop."
Married since 2010, the Dawson's Creek alum and his wife are already parents to two kids, daughter Olivia, 2, and son Joshua, 17 months. Both are eager to welcome a new little sibling.
"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."
Then, in a note to her husband, she enthused: "James, thank you for being the loving, caring, and understanding husband and father that you are."
Indeed, Van Der Beek, 36, seems to have mastered the whole family man act. "He's amazing...He's a real guy," his wife gushed to Us Weekly at a parenting event 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."
