James Van Der Beek Broke Down During Wife’s Labor

Actor James Van Der Beek broke down in tears while his wife was in labor – because he hated seeing her in so much pain.

Kimberly Brook gave birth to baby Olivia in September (10), but it was a traumatic experience for the model and her partner.  She tells Britain’s OK! magazine,

“Once we got to the hospital, it took 15 hours before she arrived. It was the four and a half hours of pushing that was the hard part. I got to the point where I thought I might literally pass out while my body was uncontrollably pushing.”

And Van der Beek admits seeing Brook’s struggle had a profound effect on him.  He explains,

“It’s not easy to watch the person you love go through that. At one point in the middle, I had to excuse myself and secretly take 20 seconds in the bathroom to break down, wipe my eyes, beat my chest and man up for her. There’s a reason they don’t let men give birth.”

James Van Der Beek Shows Off Daughter

James Van Der Beek  showed off his baby girl, Olivia – who was born on September 25 – in People magazine (click for photo).

The baby’s name was unknown until the new parents saw her face.  James’ wife, Kimberley admitted to letting have her husband have the say as to what the name would be. 

“I gave him full naming power,” she said.

“We wanted her to come out and then see what her name would be.”

“She looked like an Olivia,” James added.

James says he’s found solace in the “best advice” he’s received as a father thus far — that babies don’t break as easily as you think.

“That helps me to be a lot less nervous,” he notes. “I am calmer and then the baby picks up on the energy.”
