The 38-year-old actor also had some warm words for the family's close friends, who helped keep their big news a secret until they were ready to reveal it.

The proud parents also have a son, 3-year-old Joshua, and two daughters, 21-month-old Annabel Leah and 5-year-old Olivia.

Van Der Beek opened up about fatherhood in an interview with People earlier this year.

“We are taking it day by day. You learn how to embrace the chaos and appreciate every moment and give up the expectation that it’s not going to be chaotic,” he said. “They’re just chock full of beautiful, new experiences at every stage of the game. It’s always surprising and it’s always, basically, the best thing in life.”
