Padalecki Teases with Cryptic Tweets Before Announcing Pregnancy
Jared Padalecki fans on Twitter were a little frustrated as he seemed to have difficulty making an announcement regarding rumors that he and his wife, actress Genevieve Cortese, are expecting their first child.
The Supernatural actor first denied that he was pregnant, then tweeted that he had realized what people meant and that he felt “silly” about misunderstanding.
Padalecki followed this up with an attempt to address the rumors but then ran into difficulty with the character limit on Twitter before finally getting it out that his wife was indeed with child. The expectant father was clearly thrilled at the prospect of becoming a dad, tweeting that he and his wife will be “welcoming a new member to our family in 2012.” Shortly after making the announcement, Padalecki received a congratulatory tweet from his House of Wax co-star Chad Michael Murray.
Fans of Supernatural have followed Padalecki and Cortese with interest over the course of their romance. The couple met when Cortese guest starred on the show playing Ruby, a demon previously portrayed by Katie Cassidy, who was to begin occupying a new host every few episodes. The couple became engaged in January of 2010 and married the following month.
