James Van Der Beek says wife Kimberly suffered miscarriage

Published

on

June 21 (UPI) — James Van Der Beek announced on Instagram that his wife Kimberly has suffered her second pregnancy loss in less than a year.

“After suffering a brutal, very public miscarriage last November, we were overjoyed to learn we were pregnant,” the Pose and Dancing with the Stars actor wrote in a post Saturday.

“This time, we kept the news to ourselves. But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in … the soul we’d been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body,” he continued.

“We rushed @vanderkimberly to the hospital by ambulance for another harrowing night of blood transfusions. And as I stood by, grateful for the good people who navigated the maze of regulations to save her life — but helpless to do much for the woman I loved other than massage her feet and try to keep her warm (with my #DWTS robe, ironically) – something kept running through my head, again and again, which I now feel compelled to share: We’ve got to take better care of each other.”

The Van Der Beeks exchanged wedding vows in 2010. They are the parents of Olivia, 9, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2.

Sept. 26 (UPI) — Grown-ish star and Black-ish alum Yara Shahidi is set to play the iconic fairy Tinker Bell in Disney‘s new live-action version of Peter Pan and Wendy.

Shahidi has joined a cast that includes Jude Law as Captain Hook, Alexander Molony as Peter Pan and Ever Anderson as Wendy.

Pete’s Dragon director David Lowery is helming the project.

Shahidi is the first woman of color to play Tinker Bell on screen.

Margaret Kerry was the live-action model on whom the sprite was based in the animated 1953 film classic, Peter Pan, while Julia Roberts played Tinker Bell in the live-action Hook and Ludivine Sagnier played the pixie in 2003’s Peter Pan.

The movies were all inspired by J.M. Barrie‘s 1904 play, Peter Pan, and/or his 1911 novelization of it, Peter and Wendy.

The tale follows the adventures of a boy who never grows up and the curious human children he squires away to the magical world of Neverland.
