James Van Der Beek goes on to show that he is a perfect daddy in addition to being an acclaimed actor, through his social media channels.
On April 10, the actor, who rose to fame by starring in the legendary teen series ‘Dawson’s Creek‘ as ‘Dawson Lerry‘ updated his Instagram feed with a couple of photos of himself with Emilia Van Der Beek while going on a “date” together.
The actor clarified the photos where he and his little daughter are seen matching outfits, posing to the camera, by saying that they are going on a date together to a grocery store. He first wrote Emilia wanted to match him for their date, and then continued:
“I told her we could go anywhere she wanted for our special time… and she requested: ‘The grocery store.’ I didn’t know whether to feel like the lamest parent in the world or the most genius.”
The father-of-five then touched on the importance of spending one-on-one time with each kid is quite important, as a parent of multiple children. In his own words:
“But, as anyone with multiple kids can attest, one-on-one time is so important… and so is grocery shopping. So I’m calling this a #ParentingWin. #TakeYourVictoriesWhereYouCanGetEm.”
Following the actor’s post, a great number of users of the platform jumped into the comments section to share their own experiences with their kids. Judging by the number of comments, Van Der Beek is on the way to becoming an Insta-Dad.
