James Van Der Beek welcomes a new baby girl

September 28, 2010 |  2:21 pm

James-van-der-beek-baby "Dawson's Creek" actor James Van Der Beek is one proud new papa, and he took to Twitter to share his joy over the bundle he shares with Kimberly Brook.

"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," he wrote on Sunday.

The happy couple welcomed Olivia Van Der Beek on Saturday, all 7 pounds, 2 ounces of her.

"I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I'm under her spell," he added.

Brook and Van Der Beek were married in late July. This is the first child for both.
