James Van Der Beek Welcomes Baby Son Into The World Via Twitter

James Van Der Beek announced his wife’s pregnancy with a tweet back in October; why wouldn’t he reveal the arrival of his new baby the same way? “Had my first son this morning… well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain…,” the Beek gushed on Twitter this afternoon. “If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there’d be no more war. #fatherhood.” If anyone could sum up the experience of welcoming a new baby into the family in 140 characters, apparently it’s Dawson! #squee

The Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 star and his wife Kimberly are also parents to daughter Olivia, who was born in September 2010. How did they announce their first child’s arrival? We think you know the answer to that. “Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend. Couldn’t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters,” James tweeted at the time. “I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell.” With every new little bundle of joy, we get closer and closer to a Van Der Beek live-tweeted labor and delivery. Fingers crossed for a baby Number 3!
