Hollywood actor James Van Der Beek is quitting Los Angeles. The handsome television star recently took to his Instagram account to explain why he and his wife Kimberly decided to pack their bags and move their family from L.A. for a better life in Texas. Here’s what he has to say.
The actor decided to share his reasons as to why his family is moving to Texas after a quick pitstop in New Mexico. Sharing a photo of his daughter flying a Kite, he revealed that they couldn’t do the same in the L.A. neighborhood they left behind. “At the park in Beverly Hills near the house we just moved away from… you were not allowed to fly a KITE,” the actor, 43, wrote in an Instagram caption.

He also listed a number of activities that he claimed were not allowed back in the neighborhood his family left behind.
“Also not allowed at any park in #BeveryHills: Riding a bicycle, climbing a tree, throwing a ball against a cinder-block wall, learning anything from an instructor, using weights, cones or any type of pad, wearing cleats (even rubber ones), and you couldn’t use the batting cage built next to the baseball field. Not saying I need to fly a parachute with a fan strapped to my back like this guy… but when people ask why we’re moving our kids out of L.A. these are just some of the reasons. More to come…”
James added that he and Kimberly, along with their five children, Olivia, 10, Annabel, 6, Joshua, 8, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2, are looking forward to the new chapter in their lives.
“Sometimes a fuller life begins with an empty house. Leaving Los Angeles incredibly grateful for all the friends and memories we’ve made here,” he wrote in the caption. “Onto the next big adventure!”
