Supernatural star Jared Padalecki is expecting his second child with wife Genevieve Cortese Padalecki, who also starred on the CW show.
The pair are already parents to Thomas Colton, 16 months. Speculation that Padalecki and Cortese were expecting another child started on Friday when Padalecki cradled his wife’s beginner baby bump.
The pair were attending the Maxim, FX and Fox Home Entertainment Comic-Con party at the Andaz Hotel on Friday. Us Weekly reports that Padalecki married Cortese in February, 2010.
The couple met on the set of CW hit Supernatural, where Padalecki plays Sam Winchester, a hunter of all things evil. Genevieve Cortese Padalecki starred on the show as well, where she played double-crossing demon Ruby.
Jared Padalecki’s agent confirmed the news on Saturday, according to PEOPLE. The TV show star added of fatherhood so far:
“We’ve met a lot of new parents with little babies, and a lot of babies seem to like babies, but [Thomas] feels like he’s kind of an old soul. He kind of looks at you and tries to figure you out, which is cool. I hope he’s a mature kid.”
Along with Padalecki’s agent, the star also tweeted a pseudo-confirmation of his wife’s pregnancy on Sunday night. He wrote, “Shoot! I got on a plane and THEN realized that my tweet wasnt finished!Not used to this 140 character thing. I confirm that Genevieve is pre.”
While we’re pretty sure that makes for a pregnancy confirmation, we think that Jared Padalecki may need a little more help figuring out Twitter.
Along with his baby news, Padalecki celebrated his 31st birthday on Friday by taking a trip to the zoo with his son. The star posted photos of the excursion on Twitter. He also received happy birthday wishes from co-star Misha Collins, who plays Castiel. Collins tweeted, “Happy b-day, @jarpad! We’re glad you were born! don’t think of the past 31 years as wasted, think of them as a big mistake u can learn from.”
While Jared Padalecki and wife Genevieve Cortese Padalecki are expecting their second child, their fans await the next season of Supernatural, which starts on October 15.
