“Supernatural” actor Jared Padalecki will soon be the father of a baby boy. He and wife Genevieve Cortese will welcome their first son in March, the actor told Tonic.com.
Actor Jared Padalecki, who first gain the attention of the public with his role in “Gilmore Girls”, is now about to be a daddy. In March of 2012, the handsome star and his wife and Supernatural co-star, Genevieve Cortese, will welcome their first son into the world. Padalecki recently told Tonic.com that he first sensed the baby will be a girl. “I originally had the intuition that it would be a girl — shows what I know!” However, the actor says that the gender of his offspring is of less importance than him (or her) being healthy.
So with not more than four months before the arrival of their new family member, the couple is preparing for parenthood. “With Gen being an English major, and me being the son of an English major, and both of us loving to read, we have taken to reading all of the books that we can,” he said. They have gone through books of baby names, as well. But Jared and Gen believe that they should first meet their baby and then decide upon a name.
The couple announced the pregnancy in October. They donated all the presents received, following the baby news, to charity. “There are several charities that we support, and this one seemed like a great choice”, Padalecki said about the destination choice: St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Jared Padalecki, 29 and Genevieve Cortese, 30, tied the knot on February 27, 2010. They are currently living in Vancouver, Canada.
