James Van Der Beek reveals wife Kimberly suffered miscarriage at ‘17 weeks in’ just months after suffering another loss – The Sun
JAMES Van Der Beek revealed his wife Kimberly suffered a miscarriage last week, “17 weeks [into]” the pregnancy.
The Dawson's Creek actor, 43, shared on social media that they’d chosen to keep this pregnancy a secret after Kimberly, 38, went through another “brutal, very public miscarriage last November.”
James shared two photos of his wife lying in bed, with their daughter keeping her company.
He captioned the shots: ”We were overjoyed to learn we were pregnant. This time, we kept the news to ourselves.
“But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in… the soul we’d been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body.
“We rushed @vanderkimberly to the hospital by ambulance for another harrowing night of blood transfusions.
The Dancing With the Stars alum continued: “As I stood by, grateful for the good people who navigated the maze of regulations to save her life – but helpless to do much for the woman I loved other than massage her feet and try to keep her warm – something kept running through my head.
“We’ve got to take better care of each other. The world is in pain right now. There’s denial, shock, numbness, anger – all the old patterns we cling to when deep trauma is unearthed.
“And there are no words to ease that pain… to make the process hurt less or to solve it quickly. But the way out of it? Starts with an open, broken-hearted contemplation of this question: How can we take better care of each other?”
He concluded by letting other people who have gone through this type of loss, “You are not alone.”
In August 2010, James and Kimberly got married in a small ceremony in Tel Aviv, Israel.
They share five children together — Olivia, 9, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2.
