James Van Der Beek and Kimberly Brook are married, the “Dawson’s Creek” and “Mercy” actor announced Sunday on Twitter, just as he’d announced back in April that they were expecting their first child together.

“The woman I love did me the honor of became my wife today... I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life,” he wrote.


On Monday morning, he acknowledged the grammar gaffe in that otherwise sweet statement -- called out by a Twitter follower who apparently had experienced, um, consequences for flashing her English skills. Said Van Der Beek: “LOL I just noticed that! Believe I was an English major?”

The actor reached a divorce agreement with actress Heather McComb, his first wife, in March. The newlyweds’ baby girl is due this fall.
