James Van Der Beek has enjoyed immense success in his professional life. The actor is best known for his portrayal of Dawson Leery in the TV series Dawson’s Creek. But for all his professional success, his personal life has been filled with trials and tribulations. The star actor is married to Kimberly Brook and while the pair make a lovely couple, their marriage has been marred by miscarriages. Kimberly, especially, has been emotionally and physically drained. But despite the heartaches along the way, Brook and Van Der Beek are enjoying their time together. And given Brook’s love for privacy, the pair get all the alone time they wish for. This is one of the reasons why not much is known about Brook and what’s known is scattered all over the place. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Kimberly Brook.

However, after her relationship with Van Der Beek flourished, Brook took on the creative side of filmmaking. She worked as a producer in the short movie entitled, Teenage Paparazzo. The movie which was released in 2010 proved to be an important stepping stone for Brook who was featured in the same role for, Heads Up: The Disappearing Art of Vaginal Breech Delivery.

Despite the large family, Van Der Beek and Brook have experienced five miscarriages, something that has torn the family apart. The pair announced their fifth miscarriages in January of 2020.
“After suffering a brutal, very public miscarriage last November, we were overjoyed to learn we were pregnant. This time, we kept the news to ourselves. But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in… the soul we’d been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body.”
