'I'm under her spell,' 'Dawson's Creek' star Tweets

James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly Brook, welcomed a baby girl Saturday.

"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," the "Dawson's Creek" star wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning.

"Olivia Van Der Beek, born 9/25. I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I'm under her spell…" added Van Der Beek, who wed Brook over the summer.

He's already planning father-daughter bonding activities.

"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 #momdoesntthinkso" Van Der Beek joked on Twitter.

Van Der Beek last appeared as Dr. Joe Briggs on NBC's "Mercy."
