Dad Crush: James Van Der Beek

Famous for his role as Dawson on the famed Dawson’s Creek, James Vand Der Beek is our dad crush for the week.

15-year-old James convinced his mother to bring him to New York in an attempt to kick-start his acting career. This proved a wise move – just a year later, the teenager made his first professional debut off-Broadway starring in productions Finding The Sun and Rain Dance.

He appeared in films Angus and I Love You, I Love You Not before auditioning for Dawson’s Creek and landing the lead role. The show ran for six seasons and made him a heartthrob to many starry-eyed teenagers

He is married to Kimberly Van Der Beek and together, they have four kids.

James is currently married to Kimberly Brook (Van Der Beek), a business consultant and together they have four children – Olivia Van Der Beek, Annabel Leah Van Der Beek, Joshua Van Der Beek and Emilia Van Der Beek.

This dad plays the doting, hands-on dad really well. We see he spends alot of time with the kids, bringing them out for days at the park, or fishing – everything kids just love doing with mummy and daddy.
