The 34-year-old Supernatural star and his wife Genevieve welcomed their first baby girl, Odette Elliott, back in March.

The couple, who are already parents to Shepherd, 3, and Thomas Colton, 5, are overjoyed about their new addition.

“It’s a really cool experience, and I’m really excited for her to grow and hopefully have a Daddy’s girl,” Jared told People.

He added, “With boys, you’re like, ‘Go skin your knees and go break your arms like I did.’ But with a girl, you’re like, ‘If somebody ever touches her, I’ll go off the handle!’”

“She’s perfect already, and it would be great if she stays that way. She seems like she has a cool inner strength of like, ‘Hey, this is me. I can’t walk and talk now, but I’m comfortable.’ I hope that sticks around,” Jared sweetly said.

Jared Padelecki Talks Dean Becoming a Stars Hollow Townie

Jared Padalecki is opened up about the evolution of his Gilmore Girls fan-favorite character, Dean Forester.

The 34-year-old actor says that he went from a big city kid to a Stars Hollow townie.

“I do think very truly that maybe as I started to portray Dean more and more, they realized that my take on his character was maybe a bit more small town-y,” Jared told EW. “But I do feel like he kind of warped.”

He continued, “Moving to this very, very small town from a big city, maybe he puffed his chest a little bit, played the outsider, the badass. And then as he started to live in Stars Hollow even more, he realized that he was comfortable there and could just be himself and be a little bit more low key and didn’t have to intimidate and act like the loner James Dean-type.”
