James Van Der Beek, one of the stars in Pose and a father of five kiddos, got candid when it comes to sharing some of the baby products new parents can live without. While speaking with preshow cohosts Missi Pyle and AJ Gibson on the Golden Globes red carpet on Jan. 6, Missi reminded James of something he'd once advised: "You told me, 'Don't bother with baby wipes.'" The 41-year-old dad replied: "Yeah, it's a scam. You don't need medicated baby wipes. Just water." Frankly, we appreciate the pro tip from the seasoned dad. After all, there's nothing wrong with sticking to the basics, right?
