Dawson is a dad.
James Van Der Beek, the former star of Dawson’s Creek, and his wife Kimberly welcomed a daughter, Olivia, on Saturday. And the actor, 33, is already gushing with emotion.
“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 Twitter.
