James Van Der Beek Expecting Baby With Girlfriend Kimberly Brook

The ink hasn’t even dried on his divorce papers, but James Van Der Beek is already expecting a child with his new girlfriend.

The former Dawson’s Creek star confirmed he and girlfriend Kimberly Brook welcome their first child later this year. James, 33, met Kimberly, a business consultant, last July, according to PEOPLE Magazine.

“Yes, it’s true – the woman I love and I are expecting our first child,” James wrote on his Twitter page Friday afternoon.

In March, Van Der Beek finalized the terms of his divorce with actress Heather McComb. The star has been ordered to pay McComb more than $7,000 a month in spousal support. Their divorce becomes official on June 3.
