Heartfelt congratulations go out today to James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly Brook, who welcomed baby Olivia into the world a few days ago. Van Der Beek Tweeted about his new baby, writing “Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekendÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ CouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters. I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m under her spell.”
Olivia is the third girl born into the Dawson’s Creek family – a family which, ironically, has pushed Dawson himself to the wayside because everyone else from that show has blossomed into a megastar. There’s Joshua Jackson‘s success with Fringe and Michelle Williams‘ Oscar nomination for Brokeback Mountain, and, oh, a woman you may have heard of named Katie Holmes who left Capeside to live Cruise-side.
But what of the other Creek kids, Suri Cruise and Matilda Ledger? Will Olivia’s birth mean they’ll find themselves out of work at the Cuteness Emporium? Doubtful, but just as a gentle reminder of what Olivia is up against, let’s take a look at some of their past adorability. Oh, and just because it’s amazing, we’ve included our favorite photo of Joshua Jackson wrangling his girlfriend Diane Kruger off a Segway before she runs over Sharon Stone.
