Malungkot na binalita ng star ng '90 teen drama na Dawson's Creek na si James Van Der Beek na nag-suffer ng isang miscarriage ang kanyang misis na si Kimberly Brook.
Noong nakaraang Monday, November 18, James broke the sad news sa pamamagitan ng isang video na pinalabas sa kasalukuyang sinasalihan niyang dance competition show na Dancing With The Stars.
"My wife Kimberly and I went through every expectant parent's worst nightmare. We lost the baby. The little soul that we had expected to welcome into our family took a shortcut to whatever lies beyond. You never know why these things happen. It's what I've been telling my kids. All you know is that it brings you closer together. It breaks you open. It opens up your heart. It deepens your appreciation. It makes you more human," sey pa ni James sa video and he dedicated his performance sa kanyang misis na nagpapagaling sa ospital.
Pero iyon na pala ang last night ni James sa naturang show dahil na-eliminate siya at ang kanyang dance partner right before the finals.
Pag-observe ng audience, wala sa kanyang element ang 42-year old actor noong gabing iyon. Isa pa naman daw siya sa paboritong manalo sa Dancing With The Stars.
Ayon sa dance partner ni James na si Emma Slater: “The experience that he went through with his wife and their kids just happened within 36 hours. It wasn’t really easy for James to come out and dance tonight… he almost didn’t come."
Nag-share din si James ng isang pic sa Instagram showing his wife and their daughter sa hospital:
“Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April... has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life. We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being.”
Noong Martes, nag-post naman si Kimberly sa kanyang Instagram Story: “I don't even know how I'm going to begin to respond to it all. So, I think I'll just have to do it here. We lost our baby boy… I almost lost my life.”
Hindi na dinetalye ni Kimberly ang mga naganap sa emergency room noong gabing nagka-miscarriage siya.
Na-shock din si Kimberly na natapos na ang journey ni James sa Dancing With The Stars na inasahan niyang aabot ng finals dahil sa husay nitong sumayaw.
Noong nakaraang October lamang noong i-announce ni James that he was expecting his sixth child with Kimberly.
“Thrilled beyond belief to announce that another little bundle of joy has picked us to be their family. We chose to have our first ultrasound on camera with our #DWTS crew capturing the result – something I NEVER thought we’d ever do," post ni James on IG.
Along with a clip of their first ultrasound, James revealed that they have suffered miscarriages in the past.
“@Vanderkimberly and I have been through three of those first appointments to discover either no heartbeat, or no baby, and she wanted to share this moment. Miscarriage (a word that needs a replacement – nobody failed to ‘carry’, these things sometimes just happen) is something that people rarely talk about, and often go through in secret. But there needs to be zero shame around it, or around giving yourself the time and space to grieve. We decided to put ourselves out there – not knowing what we’d find – in an effort to chip away at any senseless stigma around this experience and to encourage people who might be going through it to open themselves up to love & support from friends and family when they need it most.”
