James and Kimberly Van Der Beek got married in August 2010. The pair were expecting their first child, a daughter they would name Olivia, but they got married because marriage was a step they wanted to take together.
James confirmed news of their marriage on Twitter, simply writing, “The woman I love did me the honor of became my wife today … I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life.”
Since then, James and Kimberly have built a family of seven: in addition to Olivia, they share Joshua, Annabel, Emilia, and Gwendolyn. Kimberly has also experienced numerous miscarriages
While the pair has admirably shared those dark days with the public (in a bid to normalize conversations about miscarriage), their large family size has definitely piqued the curiosity of many.
A family of seven is large by just about anyone’s standards, but it’s absolutely massive by Hollywood family trends!
Here’s a look into the home life of the Van Der Beeks and everything we know about the influences that shape how they are (and are not) raising their children.
