[ # ] James Van Der Beek reveals his wife miscarried before being eliminated from DWTS
November 19th, 2019 under Dancing with the Stars, James Van Der Beek

A few weeks ago, James Van Der Beek revealed on Dancing with the Stars that he and his wife, Kimberly, were expecting their sixth child. Yesterday, on the dancing competition, he shared the sad news that she lost the baby on Saturday. Even though, he was ready to quit and be with her, Kimberly told him to go on because she was not done watching him dance.

While she was not done, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were. When the Dawson’s Creek star found himself in the bottom two, all three of them chose to save Ally Brooke instead of him. The Fifth Harmony singer did not agree with their decision and offered to leave the show instead of him. Host Tom Bergeron said to her that is not how things work. It was a sweet gesture on her part.

Also, it is a messed up one on the judges’ part. I hate that they have so much say this season. I never thought they know what the viewers want which is why people like me danced their last dance with them a while ago.

Alas, it is not about them, it is about Van Der Beek. After the show ended, he wrote a heartfelt message about his loss: “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. 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.”

My heart goes out to the couple as they deal with their tragic loss.
