There were plenty of sweet tributes making the rounds on social media this Father鈥檚 Day, but James Van Der Beek just may have trumped them all. The Pose star鈥檚 wife, Kimberly, made him a dad five times over by giving birth to their fifth child!

The actor confirmed the arrival of his newest daughter, who was reportedly delivered in their home with the help of a doctor and midwife, with a sweet series of photos posted to social media.

鈥淭hrilled to announce we welcomed a brand new baby girl into the world, just in time for #FathersDay,鈥 he wrote on the family鈥檚 first snap.

Rather than merely reveling in the glory of parenthood, however, the 41-year-old took the time to address our country鈥檚 current immigration controversy, writing the lengthy passage as follows. 鈥淭hese past few days, as I鈥檝e enjoyed the privilege of making smoothies I know my older kids will like, making my wife red raspberry leaf tea to ease her uterine contractions, spending 鈥渂oy time鈥 with my son and getting my two-year-old down for a nap in the only way I know how鈥 I鈥檝e been heartsick about something. As I write this, kids are being ripped from the arms of their parents. For the kid鈥檚 benefit? No 鈥 as a purposeful display of cruelty to deter would-be illegal border-crossers AND legal asylum-seekers (It鈥檚 happening to both). And it wouldn鈥檛 be honest to wax poetic about my new baby bliss without speaking up against this atrocity. 鈥淚f we allow our government to dehumanize fathers, mothers, and children in the name of defending our borders鈥 We鈥檝e lost a huge part of what makes those borders worth defending.鈥

He continued on to speak his mind regarding the issue before returning to the matter at hand with a message for his wife, adding, 鈥淥h, and @vanderkimberly 鈥 you鈥檙e a f*cking earth goddess rock star and I鈥檓 as in awe of you as I am in love with you. And our new baby鈥檚 name is Gwendolyn. #HappyFathersDay everybody.鈥

The couple鈥檚 new addition joins siblings Olivia, 7, Joshua, 6, Annabel Leah, 4, and Emilia, 2.

Congratulations to the happy family!
