Jared Padalecki and his wife, actress Genevieve Cortese will soon become parents, his rep confirms to JustJared.com.
“OK yall I’d rather you officially hear it from me.. So, yes. Genevieve is pregnant. We’ll be welcoming a new member to our family in 2012 :)” the 29-year-old Supernatural star tweeted.
Jared had been teasing his Twitter followers about the baby news, writing, “Hey guys- I’ve been hearing a lotta rumors and getting a lotta questions so I’d like to go ahead and say that OF COURSE I’m not pregnant!”
“Ooohh!! Jeez well now I feel silly. Sorry, i simply fundamentally misunderstood the inquiries. To clarify, ‘I’ am not pregnant, and Genevie,” he said in another tweet, later adding, “Stupid character limit! Sorry-I was about to tell yall something and it cut me off! Wont happen again. Now what was it y’all were wondering?”
Jared and Genevieve tied the knot in February 2010.
Congrats to the happy couple and parents-to-be!
