James Van Der Beek Speaks Out On Instagram
“We chose to have our first ultrasound on camera with our #DWTS crew capturing the result — something I NEVER thought we’d ever do… but @vanderkimberly and I have been through three of those first appointments to discover either no heartbeat, or no baby, and she wanted to share this moment,” Van Der Beek posted.
“Miscarriage (a word that needs a replacement — nobody failed to ‘carry,’ these things sometimes just happen) is something that people rarely talk about, and often go through in secret.”
Van Der Beek then explained that there needs to be “zero shame” around a miscarriage. We wish him and his wife all the best throughout this pregnancy and we are thrilled for their announcement.
