James Van Der Beek and his family are about to embark on a brand new adventure. This isn’t about a new role in a TV series or movie. This time, the veteran actor is picking up and leaving Hollywood.
On Wednesday, he shared several photos of his family’s now empty house through his Instagram account. He included a caption expressing excitement at the endeavor.
“Sometimes, a fuller life begins with an empty house. Leaving Los Angeles incredibly grateful for all the friends and memories we’ve made here. Onto the next big adventure!”
Not long after his post appeared, several of his followers had a bit of fun with the news. One asked where in Canada he was moving. Another said a move to the Great White North was the only reasonable destination. However, other fans knew his target location.
Van Der Beek is headed to Texas, according to his wife, Kim. Through her Instagram stories earlier in the week, fans got a look at the process of moving out. She also revealed that they adopted two puppies ahead of their 10-day road trip east.
Long trip ahead for James Van Der Beek and his clan
Kim and James also joked about their undertaking in social media posts.
“Hey babe, I think we’re setting some kind of record. Do you think that anybody else in the world has ever moved out of their house with their five children and decided to adopt two rescue puppies before a 10-day road trip?” Kim asked James while the family was in the car Wednesday. “Do you think we’re setting a precedent?”
He responded, “define before, it’s day one.”
Kim added she and her famous husband planned on sharing plenty of videos and pictures of the trip. She said the goal is to bring a few smiles here and there during this rather rough time in the country.
“We will document this trip in hopes that it can bring a smile to your face during such an uncertain time in the world,” the mother of five added. “With love from our family to yours, thank you for your support on this journey. Los Angeles. ‘Twas a good run.”
The fam is social media kings and queens
Documenting the move on social media should come as no surprise to either of the Van Der Beeks’ followers. Both James and Kim are quite candid about their lives on Instagram.
They detail both the good and bad whenever they feel their followers would like to hear about them.
One detail James Van Der Beek hasn’t shared yet is just why they’re undertaking the move. It’s unlikely to stay a mystery for much longer.
