It’s a boy! Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki and Genevieve Cortese have welcomed their first child. “It’s a boy :),” Jared tweeted late Monday night. The baby was born in Seattle, just over the border from where Jared shoots “Supernatural” in Vancouver.
When he announced Genevieve’s pregnancy via Twitter, Jared asked that instead of gifts, fan send donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. At press time, Supernatural fans have raised a total of $37,740 – a generous donation, which Jared and Genevieve have promised to match dollar-for-dollar.
Among the first to congratulate Padalecki was D.J. Qualls. The “All About Steve” actor, who once made an appearance on Supernatural, was quick to send Padalecki a tweet that read, “Yay! Congrats! I love you, buddy!” In his response, the Clay Miller of Friday the 13th simply wrote back, “ditto :).”
The happy couple is seen here with Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel Harris Ackles at Supernatural PaleyFest 2011 back on March 13, 2011.
