Tonight on a new Dancing With the Stars fans of James Van Der Beek will get to see more than they expected. It turns out that James and his wife decided to do a pregnancy announcement on the show. It was also a pretty big risk considering what this couple has been through over the years. James went to his Instagram to share details.

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… but @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. Happily, for us – this time- we walked out with tears of joy. #AndThenIDancedAQuickStep. • Pic by @jilliangoulding
They even got to hear the heartbeat of the baby. James shared the news with Emma and she was really excited to hear it. These two have gotten close while being partners on the show.
James Van Der Beek and his wife have five children. He shared that they have also had three miscarriages. It has been a hard time for them. They were very happy to see that the baby was alive and well. They could have gone in there and it is bad news, but they opened up their lives to the camera. Luckily, James and his wife have a 6th little bundle of joy on the way.
