Jared Padalecki Pens Beautiful Letter to His Three Children

Jared Padalecki‘s wife Genevieve just launched her brand new blog, Now + Gen, and he wrote a really special letter to their three children.

The 34-year-old Supernatural star penned it for his sons Thomas, 5, and Shepherd, 3, and his daughter Odette, 3 months.

“Around Father’s Day, Jared wrote a letter to our children. It’s one of the most beautiful and special letters I have read, so I just had to share,” Genevieve said. “The kids may be a little too young to fully appreciate it, but one day I hope they read this and know what a great dad they have. When it comes to being a father, Jared has found his calling.”

“i realize fathers day was supposed to be about…well…’fathers’… praising them and thanking them and making them feel needed and appreciated,” Jared wrote. but, as the ‘father’ in this relationship, i wanted to change things up a bit. specifically, i wanted to take this opportunity, after my FIFTH fathers day (and counting), not to say ‘you’re welcome,’ but to say ‘thank you.’”

Then he listed all the things his kids have done, including “you’ve peed on me, pooped on me, and vomited on me (though not always necessarily in that order)” and “you’ve reduced me to tears whenever i witness you in pain.”

Then Jared goes on to thank them.

“thank you for letting me experience that special feeling you have when you know the world around you is sleeping,” he wrote. “thank you for making me wash my clothes more often than i used to (did your mother put you up to this?)”

“i have your back. now and always,” he continued. “though, i should warn you, sometimes ‘having your back’ will mean not letting you do something you think you want to. or, maybe it will even mean ‘scolding you’ when you’re doing something dangerous, or ‘correcting you’ when you’re frustrated and lashing out, or not quite being who your mother and i know you can be.”

He concluded, “you’ve humbled me. you’ve helped me rediscover the joy of discovery. you’ve turned my world upside down…and i wouldn’t have it any other way.”
