Sorry, Emma Slater – James Van Der Beek has a brand new dancing spouse: his daughter!
The actor and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant shared an lovely video of himself and daughter Annabel Leah, five, on Instagram dancing a part of his Week 6 samba routine.
“The request to re-create week 6’s samba made how hard it was to learn 100% worth it – and then some,” he captioned the video with a heart a emoji and the hashtag #dwts.
In the video, Annabel Leah is all smiles as she spins into her father’s arms before some arm choreography to the track “Light It Up” by Major Lazer. Van Der Beek also dips her before sharing some words of encouragement.
“There ya go,” he says in the clip. “Whoo!”
Van Der Beek has been competing with pro-dancer Slater during Season 28 of the reality dance competition.

Soon, Van Der Beek will have even more dancing partners at home.
In October, he announced that he and his wife, Kimberly Brook, are expecting their sixth child together.
“Thrilled beyond belief to announce that another little bundle of joy has picked us to be their family,” he captioned a sweet photo of his matching brood on Instagram.
He first revealed the news on “Dancing with the Stars” earlier by allowing cameras into the couple’s first ultrasound appointment. He admitted that it’s “something I NEVER thought we’d ever do” after going through several miscarriages.
