Kimberly Van Der Beek
James Van Der Beek‘s wife opened up about her three miscarriages, “all around 10 weeks gestation,” in September 2018. She wrote on Instagram at the time: “I let them all happen naturally. I had a loving husband, a compassionate birthing team and I felt spiritually grounded about them. And even in the best of circumstances, they all broke my heart. I was devastated every single time. After one of them, I sat in the shower crying for almost five hours. Thankfully I am fully at peace with them all now and have five children.”
In September 2019, the former business consultant announced that she and the Dawson’s Creek alum were expecting baby No. 6 — but she miscarried in November. “We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being,” James wrote on social media following the pregnancy loss.
Nine months later, James announced that his wife had experienced another miscarriage. “Once again, 17 weeks in, the soul we’d been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body,” he wrote via Instagram in June 2020. “We rushed [Kimberly] to the hospital by ambulance for another harrowing night of blood transfusions.”Back to top
