In honor of his father’s birthday, Hollywood star James Van Der Beek updated his Instagram feed with a series of TBT photos belong to him & his father plus a current snap of them captured by his wife Kimberly Van Der Beek.

Describing his former professional baseball pitcher father as “always a solid guy” and “always a good father,” ‘The Rules of Attraction’ actor continued:

“Always supportive, and a provider, and kind, and thoughtful, and present, and a whole host of other qualities I had the immense privilege of taking for granted as a kid.”

“We’ve always had a good relationship, but as he’s opened up more and more about just how human he is, the more clearly I’ve come to see him for who he really is… and the more I love him.”

The Hollywood actor concluded his touching post, by thanking his father for being a “rock” but “having the courage to be soft.”
