James Van Der Beek revealed that his wife had suffered a miscarriage during an episode of Dancing With The Stars.
The couple has five children together and Kimberly Van Der Beek has gone through three other miscarriages.
Kimberly thanked everyone for the support in an Instagram story last week. She said in a video along with her daughter Annabel Leah, “Thank you so much for all the love. I’m so grateful for it. A lot of you have asked how I’m feeling physically. I’m healing. I am definitely healing.”
The 37-year-old also said, “My biggest thing is my blood pressure. I just get very lightheaded very easily so I can’t really get up and walk around for more than a couple minutes right now. A lot of blood transfusion action this weekend, so I’m just taking it super easy trying to restore and build my blood.”
“Thank you for the outpouring,” she said. “I have over 200 voice messages and over 200 messages to read through as well, and I’m trying to not just pore through my phone right now. So if I haven’t gotten back to you, I probably haven’t even seen your message or heard it, but I’m just grateful for all of them and all of the love. Thank you.”
Furthermore, the Dawson’s Creek alum James also posted the heartbreaking news on Instagram writing, “Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April… has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life. We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being.”
Further adding, “Grateful that she’s now recovering, but we’ve only just begun unpacking the layers of this one. Thank you to all of our friends and co-workers (and dance partners) who have shown up for us so beautifully during this time. As many of you have said, “There are no words…” and it’s true. Which is why in a time like this it’s enough to know that you’re there. Grieving AND counting our blessings today.”
James Van Der Beek and Kimberly got married in 2010. They share five children including, Olivia, Annabel, Emilia, and Gwendolyn, and Joshua.
