On September 25th James Van Der Beek became a dad for the first time and now he is showing her off in People Magazine!
Besides debuting his awwwdorable baby girl, they explained how Olivia got her name. The Dawson’s Creek star was given full control when it came to naming her, but he waited until she came out before he decided what to call her. He looked at her and thought she looked like Olivia and he explained, “there’s an olive tree in Israel that’s special to us,” adds Kimberly, “We spent time under it when we first met in Israel, then we went back to this tree when I was pregnant.” How sweet.
In case you couldn’t tell by the red string bracelet on her arm, they study Kabbalah and that is how the two met.
