Call him Daddy, not Dawson. On Monday, James Van Der Beek, 33, used Twitter to announce the arrival of his baby daughter. “Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend,” he wrote. “Couldn’t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters.” The former ‘Dawson’s Creek‘ star and his wife, model Kimberly Brook, named their new addition Olivia. “I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell,” he added. Van Der Beek and Brook married last August in Tel Aviv, Isreal and celebrated earlier this month with friends Balthazar and Rosetta Getty and Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. “The party was very small and intimate,” People magazine reported. “James and Kim were glowing. Despite being about to burst, Kim looked amazing.”
