James Van Der Beek is about to have his hands full.
The actor's wife of three years, Kimberly, took to her lifestyle blog Old School New Rules on August 30 to reveal that she and Van Der Beek have a baby on the way. The new addition, due this winter, will join big sister Olivia, nearly 3, and Joshua, 1.
"All of the craziness, exhaustion, and moodiness aside, James and I are beyond elated and feeling so incredibly blessed," she writes in a post titled "We're Expecting!" "Olivia and Joshua are in on the news and seem to be excited about a baby coming into the family. And James, thank you for being the loving, caring, and understanding husband and father that you are."
Speaking with People, James gushes, "I feel ridiculously blessed. I feel so much love, honestly."
"I was told two was three times as hard as one, and that three is actually not as big of a leap," he says. "If anybody knows otherwise, I'm going to ask them not to tell me."
Van Der Beek's latest movie role is in Jason Reitman's "Labor Day," which debuted yesterday at the Telluride Film Festival, ahead of its December 25 limited release. He's back on the small screen this fall in the CBS comedy "Friends With Better Lives."
