Happy Birthday, James Van Der Beek & Freddie Prinze Jr.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and James Van Der Beek
These Hollywood throwback stars still have their fans' love.

The '90s brought us great pop songs, flannel shirts and more importantly, hot TV shows with even hotter actors.

Among them was James Van Der Beek, who starred in the hit TV show Dawson's Creek and swooned teen viewers' hearts.

 

Since losing Joey, what's he been up to? The blonde-haired, blue-eyed star was formerly married to actress Heather McComb, but they divorced in 2009 after six years of marriage. Celebrating his 36th birthday on March 8, the Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 star and second wife, Kimberly Cook, share two children: 2-year old daughter Olivia and baby son Joshua.

"Just when we thought we couldn't feel any more blessed, it seems the universe has plans to give our daughter a sibling," Van Der Beek wrote at the time.  

For the dark-haired lovers, the '90s brought Freddie Prinze Jr.—who rose to fame with movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Head Over Heels. Meeting his future wife on set, the actor wed Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar in a 2002 ceremony in Mexico. Married for 10 years and counting, they have two children together, daughter Charlotte Grace Prinze, 3, and 6-month-old son Rocky James.

Surprisingly, Prinze has always had a love for wrestling, and after leaving a small stint with World Wrestling Entertainment in 2008, he returned two years later as a producer and director for WWE. Turning 37, both he and Van Der Beek toast another year of getting with hotter with age.
