The former Dawson’s Creek star then went on to criticize the Donald Trump Administration’s crack down on illegal immigration that has a zero-tolerance policy of separating families at the border.
“As I write This kind of, kids are being ripped through the arms of their parents. By our government. For the kid’s benefit? No – the opposite – as a purposeful display of cruelty to deter could-be illegal border crossers in addition to legal asylum seekers (of which’s happening to both). in addition to of which wouldn’t be honest to wax poetic about my brand-new-baby bliss without speaking up against This kind of atrocity,” Van Der Beek wrote.

“Thrilled beyond belief to announce of which we are Again adding to our family 😍,” James captioned the pic. “in addition to I say ‘beyond belief’ because some people are probably wondering if we’re out of our minds. Which we might very well be… although I couldn’t be more excited. Or grateful. Or in awe of @vanderkimberly.”
