Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek is a first-time dad after welcoming a daughter at the weekend.

The actor’s wife Kimberly Brook gave birth to baby Olivia on Saturday and Van Der Beek announced the news via his page.

In a series of posts, he wrote, “Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend… Couldn’t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters… I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad Tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell…”

The 33-year-old star wed Brook last month. He was previously married to actress Heather Ann McComb.
