Who needs snail mail when you got Twitter, right James Van Der Beek?

The ex-Dawson's Creek star has tweeted out some happy news Monday night, announcing that he and wife Kimberly Brook welcomed a new addition—a baby girl named Olivia.

"Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend... Couldn't come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters," he wrote about the baby, born Saturday.

"I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow," Van Der Beek added. "I'm under her spell..."   

She may be brand new, but the Beek already has plans for some daddy-daughter bonding time over football. 

"If I watch football w/ my daughter now, she'll like the sounds of the NFL & want to watch it w/ me when she's older," he tweeted.  

Van Der Beek, 33, is on his second marriage. He and his model wife tied the knot over the summer, which inspired him to take to Twitter and gush: "The woman I love did me the honor of became my wife today...I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life."
