James Van Der Beek reunited with his "Dawson's Creek" TV mom Mary-Margaret Humes
In 1998 every American teenager was watching a new series called "Dawson's Creek" and enjoying the fictional lives of the characters.
James Van Der Beek played the lead as Dawson Leery, and his fictional mother and father were played by Mary-Margaret Humes and John Wesley Shipp in the hit show that ran between 1998 and 2003.
In March 2018, the cast got together for the show's 20th anniversary but Humes and Shipp were not included or invited.
Now Humes' screen son has made it up to her in a sweet "mother and son" reunion, and she shared that special moment on Instagram.
‘Okay, so let me get this off my chest as the initial hurt has subsided just a bit...’
Mary-Margaret Humes, Instagram, 29th of March 2018.

Humes set her hurt aside and enjoyed a warm and joyful reunion with her TV son and the 41-year old actor shared a delightful photo of the two of them on Instagram.
Humes, now 64, reposted the photograph on her Instagram account and captioned it: 'The smile on my face...#authentic. The love in my heart for this amazing soul...#unconditional.'
