Break out the cigars - or your celebratory method of choice - because James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly have just welcomed a baby boy.
The “Dawson’s Creek” star announced the birth of the couple's second child via Twitter on Tuesday.
“Had my first son this morning … well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain," he wrote. "If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there'd be no more war."
The couple, who wed in 2010, also have a daughter, 17-month-old Olivia.
Kimberly was so excited about the new arrival that she tweeted as well: “Had such a blessed and miraculous birth experience. Cannot wait to share it with all of you! Thank you for all the love and good wishes. I can feel it all. xo”
The pair broke the news about their then-pending bundle of joy back in the fall.
“Just when we thought we couldn’t feel any more blessed, it seems the universe has plans to give our daughter a sibling,” the Beek from the "Creek" announced in October.
The 35-year-old actor stars in the upcoming ABC show “Don’t Trust the B-- in Apt. 23," which debuts on April 11.
