“Thrilled beyond belief to announce that another little bundle of joy has picked us to be their family,” James wrote on Instagram when he made the announcement.
The family chose to show their first ultrasound while James was competing on Dancing with the Stars. The actor shared that they made the decision after Kimberly suffered three miscarriages.
James explained, “We decided to put ourselves out there – not knowing what we’d find – in an effort to chip away at any senseless stigma around this experience and to encourage people who might be going through it to open themselves up to love & support from friends and family when they need it most. Happily, for us – this time- we walked out with tears of joy.”
