She was born last week, but she had no name! James Van Der Beek finally names his third child.
On Friday, the actor appeared on The Talk while promoting his new film Labor Day. He revealed why they chose to wait on the name.
“We felt like we needed to meet [her] first… and we’re just lazy,” he quipped. “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.”
The baby’s name is Annabel. Kimberly also decided to reveal the name on Instagram the same day her husband shared the news on the daytime talk show. She wrote, “We named our baby girl.”
Even though the couple decided to wait until the delivery to find out the sex of their new baby, big sister Olivia seemed to know better than anyone.
The 36-year-old actor shared on the CBS show, “Olivia knew before my wife was even showing. I was in the car and she said, ‘My sister’s hiding.’ I said, ‘Your sister’s hiding — where?’ She goes, ‘In Mommy’s tummy.’ Everybody thought ‘boy’ with this one — it was a surprise for us. Every psychic and everybody who said they knew… ‘I’m telling you, it’s a boy.'”
In addition to Olivia, the couple is also parents to son Joshua, 22 months.
