James Van Der Beek and Wife Reveal New Baby’s Name! Call Her…

James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly welcomed the fifth member of their party last week and they’ve just announced the newest Van Der Beek’s name. And it’s... hold on, hold on. Let’s get a little baby-naming context first.

“We felt like we needed to meet [her] first… and we’re just lazy,” the 36-year-old actor told the ladies of The Talk (via People) when he stopped by the show on January 31. “We had not had a single discussion about a name before the baby was born. I said, ‘By the way, do you have a name?’ She said, ‘Well, only one name came to me.’ I said, ‘Yeah, only one name came to me too.’ And it was the same name.”

Sweet story, right? Aren’t you glad you waited? And now, after probably too much ado, James and Kimberly named their little girl — you sure you want to know? Okay, okay, her name’s Annabel!

The couple shared the news on Instagram, where Kimberly posted a photo of “Annabel” written out in white against a wood grain background. Too cute!

Lil Annabel joins big brother, 22-month-old Joshua, and 3-year-old sister, Olivia. Congratulations once again to the happy family!
