Usually when a couple learn that they are expecting a baby together, they go through the usual steps of talking about whether they would prefer a boy or a girl, before then going on to talk about what names they like. However, a lot of the time a couple cannot agree on a name and there are some interesting stories about how names got worked out.
Former Dawson's Creek actor James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly recently welcomed their baby daughter in to the world but it seems that they had no name lined up for when she was born. The two finally settled on the name Annabel and James has now revealed how the name came about.
Van Der Beek explained, "We felt like we needed to meet [her] first … and we’re just lazy. We had not had a single discussion about a name before the baby was born. I said, ‘By the way, do you have a name?’ She said, ‘Well, only one name came to me.’ I said, ‘Yeah only one name came to me too.’ And it was the same name."
As for his acting career, James Van Der Beek has had mixed success since the Dawson's Creek days, appearing in a number of television shows and movies over the years. The most recent project James worked on is the television series Friends with Better Lives, which will premiere on March 31.
