James Van Der Beek recently learned that one has to be very careful what they say around children when his youngest daughter started saying a swear word in front of the whole family.
Over the weekend, actor James Van Der Beek took to Instagram to share a video of his child swearing. In the clip, the “Dawson’s Creek” star recorded his daughter, Gwendolyn, 2, riding around on a scooter.
James, his wife Kimberly, and the rest of their children appeared to be in the kitchen together when the incident occurred. The actor could be heard asking his child to repeat what she said.

Gwendolyn loudly swears again before one of the older Van Der Beek children shockingly replies: “She’s saying the F-word.” The parents couldn’t help but laugh as the child repeated the word.
The star's former business consultant wife was tormented with the swear word as the little toddler came closer and kept saying it repeatedly. Kimberly, 38, even asked the rest of the family:
“Where did she hear that?”
Her mother kept laughing in shock and told the child that it wasn’t right to say the word. James just kept recording everyone’s reaction to the continued swearing as his other children stood around.
James and Kimberly are also parents to Olivia, 10, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 6, and Emilia, 4. The actor captioned his post wanting to know if it wasn’t too late for him and his wife to submit for “Parents of the Year.”
When the Van Der Beeks aren’t being subjected to incessant swearing, they make sure to give back during the festive season. James partnered with the grocery store HEB and the Pop-Up Birthday organization.
They worked together to surprise one Texas family with Christmas decorations, gifts, and groceries. The star and his family moved to Texas from California in October 2020.
James Van Der Beek shared that he and his family relocated because of some personal circumstances.
The actor explained how giving back was a tradition in the state. He revealed that it was also a tradition his family had and something he wanted to teach his five children.
The star shared that he and his family relocated because of some personal circumstances. He revealed in an Instagram post that he and his wife had experienced two late-term pregnancy losses in the past 10 months.
During Christmas break they also thought his wife had a tumor, James was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars, his mother died, and the pandemic happened. The family decided a change would be welcome.
