However, he performed and dedicated the performance to wife Kimberly, who also pushed him to participate. He announced, "Kimberly, I love you, I’m dancing for you, I’m dancing for us, so here we go, babe.”.

While the judges awarded them a 27, Van Der Beek was all praises for his wife and her charisma. He shouted out to his wife, saying, "Kimberly, I love you. Thank you for pushing me out on that dance floor, thank you for everything you do. I don’t know how you do it. Five kids. You’re amazing.”

The actor also shared the news on Instagram, where he expressed the couple's devastating mood and the saddening dispersal of their baby, who would have joined them in April. The miscarriage was also life-threatening for Kimberly. “We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being," wrote James. He also mentioned all the family and friends who stood by them during this time and thanked them to the core.
