Genevieve Padalecki--also known to some as Genevieve Cortese, wife of Supernatural star Jared Padalecki, gave birth to a baby boy--the couple's second child--on Sunday. The two actually met on the Supernatural set and they tied the knot back in 2010. They are the very proud parents of a 21-month-old named Thomas Colton Padalecki. Their new baby boy made his way into the world during a home birth.
2013 has been a very big year for the Padalecki family. Supernatural began season 9 back in September and is going strong. Jared also landed at number 4 on Tumblr's list of Most Reblogged Actors in 2013. Add to that the birth of their new baby, and 2013 really can't be topped.
Jared and Genevieve Padalecki's big news was announced by Jared via Twitter--and at first included a bit of a humorous (?) jab at Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo.
Hey yall- gen and I did, indeed, experience a holiday miracle yesterday: Tony Romo didn't senselessly throw the game away!!

Jared Padalecki also used Twitter to announce Genevieve's pregnancy with both of their children. However with this second one, he didn't finish the tweet before boarding a plane.
“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,” he wrote at the time.
Jared is still teasing fans via Twitter. The family has yet to announce the new baby's name.
We just wanted to wish everybody out there a safe and happy holiday season, from the four Padaleckis. Sincerely: Me, @realGpad, Thomas, and

Even though the Supernatural star may not have mastered social media, he has certainly mastered fatherhood. He will no doubt be forgiven all his Twitter blunders when the show returns to TV on January 14th at 9 PM. Hopefully at that point the actor will still be at home with his wife, helping with those middle of the night feedings.
