James Van Der Beek and his family looked adorable and happy in Christmas photo that shows them wearing matching pajamas and making funny faces.

Christmas is about the joy of family, and DWTS star James Van Der Beek got to experience it with his family. They looked happy and goofy in the photo shared by the celebrity's wife, Kimberly, on Instagram.

In it, the Van Der Beek family wore matching pajamas with a candy-cane design. The photo appeared to be a selfie, and the family-of-seven seemed to be screaming in excitement while making goofy faces.

"Christmas photos? Thanks for the candy-cane PJs' @lesliedurso!"

The actor's wife's followers reacted with heartfelt comments. One person joked that it appears the family consumed a few candy-canes before the photo, referencing how hyper they appear.

Thrilled to announce we welcomed a brand new baby girl into the world Friday morning, just in time for #FathersDay 😍 These last few days, as I’ve enjoyed the privilege of making smoothies I know my older kids will like, making my wife red raspberry leaf tea to ease her uterine contractions, spending “boy time” with my son and getting my two year-old down for a nap in the way only I know how... I’ve been heart sick about something. As I write this, kids are being ripped from the arms of their parents. By our government. For the kid’s benefit? No - the opposite - as a purposeful display of cruelty to deter would-be illegal border crossers AND legal asylum seekers (it’s happening to both). And it wouldn’t be honest to wax poetic about my new-baby bliss without speaking up against this atrocity. If we allow our government to de-humanize fathers, and mothers, and children in the name of defending our borders... we’ve lost a huge part what makes those borders worth defending. And even if you don’t believe in karma, or in extending basic human decency to people who didn’t win the geographic birth lottery... even if you’re hard-liner enough to say, “Break the law, suffer the consequences,” shouldn’t the punishment at least fit the crime? And if you’re still cold enough to say, “Well, it’s effective,” consider this: This heinous practice was put into place by our own attorney general (who justified it with a cherry-picked Bible verse), and our president blamed rivals before tweeting his list of legislative demands to be met before he stops it. Regardless of how you feel about immigration, or a wall, or this president... if we say we’re okay with our government using human rights violations as a deterrent or as a bargaining chip... what happens when we find ourselves on the wrong side of the agenda? Either in this administration or the next? This should not be a political issue - it’s a human one. A crime against humanity is a crime against us all. More info in link in my bio. Oh, and @vanderkimberly - you’re a f*cking earth goddess rock star and I’m as in awe of you as I am in love with you. And our new baby’s name is Gwendolyn ❤️ #HappyFathersDay everybody.

Another wrote that the snap is lovely. One person described it as "Everything," while Leslie Durso commented that the photo is Christmas card worthy, and the PJs' looks "Cute on y'all."

Van Der Beek and Kimberly's attempt to have more children ended in miscarriages

Van Der Beek and his family are all creating moments and documenting them on social media. In November, while the "Dawson Creek" star was still participating in DWTS, he recreated his Samba dance routine with his daughter, Annabel Leah.


He shared a video of himself and his little girl busting Samba moves, and captioned it,

"The request to recreate this week six's Samba made how hard it was to learn 100% worth it, and then some."

A month earlier, the actor shared a video of his children recreating his performance of the song, "He's a Pirate" for the Disney-themed night. It featured Annabel, Olivia, Joshua, and Emilia.


The only Van Der Beek child missing was 16-month old, Gwendolyn. The dad-of-five applauding his children's effort wrote that what a person does with all his heart can get contagious.

The actor is a proud father, and he is not shy to show it. He has the assistance of Kimberly, and together, they focus their attention and energy on their children.

The couple got married nine years ago and welcomed their first child soon after. Their last child came in June 2018, and the actor shared how thrilled he was on Instagram.

Since then, Van Der Beek and Kimberly's attempt to have more children ended in miscarriages. Although the loses broke their hearts, the parents-of-five are focused on raising the children they have and loving them unconditionally.
