Jared Padalecki and Wife Genevieve Cortese Expecting Third Child Together
By Antoinette Bueno
Jared Padalecki and wife Genevieve Cortese are expanding their family of four!
The 34-year-old Supernatural actor announced Cortese is pregnant with their third child together during his appearance on Live! With Kelly on Monday.
"When I started the show [Supernatural] I was 22 years old, I was a single guy, kind of doing my thing," Padalecki said. "Now I'm 12 years older, I'm a father of two now, about to be a father of three in March."
Padalecki and Cortese have been married since 2010. The couple met on the set of the hit CW show while filming season four, when Cortese had a recurring guest role as demon Ruby. The Gilmore Girls star called falling for the 35-year-old actress in real life "special and unexpected."
"The story I tell my friends is that she wouldn't leave me alone," Padalecki joked to Ripa. "I was like, 'Alright, I'll go on a date with you, fine.'"
On a more serious note, Padalecki told the adorable story of how they eventually became more than co-stars.
"She came on set and it was season four, which was eight years ago, and I thought she was cute and smart, and she would always read books," he recalled. "And one of my pet peeves is when someone interrupts me when I'm reading ... [but] I kept on finding myself interrupting her."
"I thought she was awesome, so I asked her out to lunch, and it turned into hanging out talking about traveling, and it turned into dinner."
Interestingly enough, Padalecki's Supernatural co-star, Jensen Ackles, also has more babies on the way with his own wife, former One Tree Hill star Danneel Harris. Ackles and Harris -- who are already parents to their 3-year-old daughter, Justice -- are expecting twins!
