You know James Van Der Beek as Dawson Leery. You know him as Elijah Mundo. You even know him as a hilariously exaggerated version of himself. But to four little kiddos, he also goes by dad. And a few days ago the Van Der Beek family grew a little bigger: The actor and his wife, Kimberly, welcomed an adorable baby girl named Emilia.

Emilia was born on Wednesday, March 23, and the Van Der Beeks are all already in love. James announced the news and shared the sweetest pic of his wife and kids — all four of them! — on Instagram.

James and Kimberly are pros at this whole “new baby” thing, and they have plenty of backup at home. The VDB brood also includes Olivia, 5, Joshua, 4, and Annabel, 2.

Just look how cute their three oldest kiddos are! Emilia will be hamming it up for the camera in no time with her sweet little face and (we assume) curly blonde locks.
