James Van Der Beek and his family are enjoying their new life in Texas.
At the end of September, the 43-year-old Dawson’s Creek actor revealed that he, wife Kimberly, and their five kids – Olivia, 10, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2 – were moving out of Los Angeles for a new “big adventure” in Texas.
In a new Instagram post, James is opening up about his family’s decision to move.
“And… we’ve landed. In the last ten months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put @vanderkimberly in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favored to win in front of the whole world, and my mom died,” James wrote along with a few photos checking out the nature with his kids.
“And a shut-down,” James continued. “All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities… and landed us here. Overflowing with profound gratitude today.”
