"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," he wrote.

And, the tweeting didn't end there, nor will it likely end soon. He warned: "I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow," he wrote. "I'm under her spell..."

The former Dawson's Creek star also cracked some jokes about his newborn baby girl. He posted: "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."

James and Kimberly got married over the summer.
