Yes, Dawson is officially a dad.
James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly Brook welcomed their first child, daughter Olivia, this past Saturday, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“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,” the hunky star of 90s hit Dawson’s Creek Tweeted Monday. “I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell…”
The proud papa was already at work conditioning his little one to be daddy’s little girl.
“If I watch football w/ my daughter now, she’ll like the sounds of the NFL & want to watch it w/ me when she’s older,” Van Der Beek, 33, Tweeted.
Van Der Beek and Brook married this past August at a Kabbalah Center in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Van Der Beek joins his Dawson’s Creek co-stars Katie Holmes (daughter Suri with Tom Cruise) and Michelle Williams (daughter Matilda with the late Heath Ledger) as a high-profile Hollywood parent.
