James’ wife, Kimberly, shared the news on Instagram on Wednesday, February 24, and said that the 4-year-old needed a wound on her head to be glued after an accident and shared a picture of an ER worker with her daughter. "@vikcompletecare_er ONCE AGAIN delivers the ultimate in care."

"Not terrible but not an air heal situation,” she shared with a picture of the cut on her daughters’ eyebrow. “She breathed through it all and the doctors and nurses here have had a [100 emoji] success rate with us of handling situations with fully informed decision offerings, friendliness and care. These two were scared and immediately comforted and commented out the door how 'amazing' they were."

"In the last ten months, we've had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put @vanderkimberly in the hospital," James shared on Instagram last year. "We spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), a business colleague I hired hijacked the project and stabbed me in the back, I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favored to win in front of the whole world, and my mom died."

"And a shut-down," he noted of the coronavirus pandemic. "All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities... and landed us here.

"Overflowing with profound gratitude today."

Kimberly also showed fans around their new home on an Instagram Live at the time and said she is "loving" life outside of Austin: "It's a very compound-like, village life that we're building here." 

James and Kimberly are also parents to Olivia, 10, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 7, and Gwendolyn, 2.
