Sharing a family photo of his wife, Kimberly, and their children, Van Deer Beek said he was "thrilled beyond belief to announce that another little bundle of joy has picked us to be their family."

He revealed they chose to share the first ultrasound on "DWTS" because they've had so many miscarriages.

Saying it's "something I NEVER thought we’d ever do... but @vanderkimberly and I have been through three of those first appointments to discover either no heartbeat, or no baby, and she wanted to share this moment."


Getting deep about the misconception of miscarriage, the actor stated, "is something that people rarely talk about, and often go through in secret."

He added that "there needs to be zero shame around it, or around giving yourself the time and space to grieve."

Most importantly, Van Der Beek said, "We decided to put ourselves out there - not knowing what we’d find - in an effort to chip away at any senseless stigma around this experience and to encourage people who might be going through it to open themselves up to love & support from friends and family when they need it most."
