Taking to Instagram, Brook, 37, thanked followers for the support she and Van Der Beek, 42, received since announcing the pregnancy loss.
“In 48 hours we lost our baby — boy, by the way — and I almost lost my life,” Brook said in her story, according to People. “Which is not a story that has been told, but at some point I can dig into the details with you guys about what happened in the emergency room.”
Though Brook said she is “not really ready to talk further about everything yet,” the mother of five did comment on Van Der Beek’s surprising elimination from “Dancing with the Stars” on Monday.
“Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April… has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life,” the “Dawson’s Creek” alum shared.
“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. Grateful that she’s now recovering, but we’ve only just begun unpacking the layers of this one,” he continued.
