James Van Der Beek, actor, doesn’t regret moving from Los Angeles to Austin Texas.
Van Der Beek said that the move was “grounding” for him and his family.
He told People magazine that he knows it has been a centering experience for him and his children.
The actor opened up about how much time he spends with his six children and Kimberly, the wife he got when he married Kimberly in 2010.
“We love it. Van Der Beek said that there is a lot more space. We all need to have a closer connection with nature. It was a great decision and the children are very happy.
Van Der Beek and Kimberly decided to relocate to Texas in 2020 from Los Angeles. The family wanted to be closer to the natural world. This was Van Der Beek’s reasoning. According to the “Rules of Attraction” star, life has been “very different” thus far.
He said, “The parks are amazing.” We’ve been to both state parks and national parks. It was one of the many benefits of moving out of big cities. We could have more space outside our doors. It’s quite a different way of living.
People magazine interviewed the “Dawson Creek” star about how the greatest change was to move from California’s urban life to a more rural setting. He said, “Just the things we are all aware of, such as what phase the moon appears in when we come out, and we look at it.”
He said, “I feel like our relationship is with these natural cycles that happen,” and he spoke about his family’s decision in Texas to move there.
Rain in L.A. was like “Ah, man, I’m going to be 20 minutes late because it raining.” Van Der Beek shared that it was a blessing.
Kimberly, the actor’s wife, has six children. They have Olivia, 12, Joshua 10, Annabel, 8, Emilia 6, Gwendolyn 4, and Jeremiah 1.
They jump all over. Van Der Beek described his children as singing, “rain, rain come today,” and running out in it because they need it. It connected us to nature and the natural cycles of life all around us.
The actor from “Varsity Blues,” noted that Los Angeles’ busy streets meant there were no food delivery options.
He said that one of the most important things we lost after moving to Texas was food delivery services. “So we began cooking more and the kids enjoy it.
Jeremiah was recently celebrated by the Van Der Beek family in Texas.
“It is going to sound strange, but we thought that he was a miracle worker when we first met him. Van der Beek said. Van der Beek said, “Which I find insane since we had five children before him.” We were so grateful for all that we had to go through before he came along. He anchors our family in a truly beautiful way.”
He said, “Everything is bigger in Texas.” He is by far our biggest baby. He has been truly a blessing. He’s well worth whatever he costs in sleeping — and still does —
