Actor James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly, have welcomed their sixth child together, following two miscarriages since their fifth.

"Humbled and overjoyed to announce the safe, happy arrival of Jeremiah Van Der Beek (We’ve been calling him Remi ...," the former "Dawson's Creek" and "Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23" star wrote on Instagram on Monday, posting a video and several photos of the infant.

"After experiencing late-term #pregnancyloss twice in a row (both at 17+ weeks), we kept this one quiet," he went on to explain in the long missive. "Each child brings their own energy, their own manifestation of consciousness, their own lessons," he added. "The ones we lost each gifted us with different pieces of the puzzle … leaving us that much more grateful for the ongoing master class we get to enjoy with this sweet, wise little one."

The new child was born five weeks ago, James Van Der Beek went on to say on Instagram Stories, where posts cycle out after 24 hours. The actor, 44, and his wife, who moved to a ranch outside Austin, Texas, last year, are the parents of daughters Olivia, 11, Annabel, 7, Emilia, 5, and Gwendolyn, 3, and son Joshua, 9.
