The Dawson’s Creek star had a rough go of it with his newborn daughter this week, but thanks to his wife, Kimberly, tweeting a play-by-play, we heard all about it!
It’s bad enough when you can’t get your infant daughter to sleep on your own, but when your wife makes sure the whole world knows about it? Well, that’s just rubbing salt in the wound, isn’t it? That was James Van Der Beek‘s problem on Wednesday night (Dec. 29), when the 33-year-old actor couldn’t get his 3-month-old daughter Olivia to sleep, and all wife Kimberly, 28, could do was alert her Twitter followers to her poor hubby’s struggles!
“After 45 min of trying2 get Olivia2 sleep w/out me my husband walks out ‘I don’t know what else to do except pour myself a stronger drink.'” Kimberly tweeted late on Wednesday night. Then, shortly afterward came, “It’s taken 3 hours for us to get 10 min of Wallstreet 2 in. I just love my demanding little pack of dynamite!”
At last, after trying everything in the book, James emerged a big winner. According to Kimberly, “Lol- husband just walked out of room victorious! Fist in air then fell to the ground. The angel is sleeping :-)”
Alas, the victory was short-lived. Just a few minutes later, she tweeted, “Guess who’s awake?!!” D’oh! Welcome to parenthood, James!
