Jared Padalecki Expecting Second Child

Jared Padalecki is a pro at hunting down demons, but can double daddy duty be just as easy?

The Supernatural star, 31, and his wife Genevieve Cortese are expecting their second child together, his manager confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Speculation that there was a sibling on the way for son Thomas Colton, 16 months, began when Padalecki cradled Cortese’s beginner bump while walking the red carpet during a Comic-Con event in San Diego, Calif. on Friday.

“We’ve met a lot of new parents with little babies, and a lot of babies seem like babies, but [our son] feels like he’s kind of an old soul,” Padalecki has said of his baby boy.

“He kind of looks at you and tries to figure you out, which is cool. I hope he’s a mature kid.”

Padalecki wed former Supernatural costar Cortese in February 2010 in Sun Valley, Idaho.
