Guest- They do…when the celeb reveals them. But Jared and his wife haven’t yet (my guess is they haven’t decided on one yet!).

Anyway, congrats to them!

Neb1997, if you can write then you should be able to read and comprehend the answer to your stupid question.
responding to.

Congrats to the Padaleckis.

Tara on

Congratulations Jared, Gen and Big Brother Thomas

Congrats! Babies are blessings!

And Kaye, if you’re going to post a snarky b****y comment you should know what the actual turn of phrase is. Nothing like making yourself look mean and stupid.

Mandy on

Hey neb1997, clearly states in the first line of the second paragraph “The Supernatural star and his wife…”
Even though I do believe that you are trolling, I decided to post anyway.

With that over, I am thrilled for Jared and Gen, Thomas is a cute kid and I can’t believe that there is going to be another one!

MJ on

Wow! What a strong woman and such a sweet family. I’m sure their new addition will bring them much happiness.

Molly Lyions on

Congratulations! Welcome baby boy!!!!!!!

Kay Pasa on

Wow. I don’t know who that guy is but he is HOT HOT HOT!

Jae on

I will never understand the people who come on to these stories and type “Who?” as their only comment. You people chose to read the story; if you didn’t know who they were, why do you care if they had a baby. Also, you do know who they are because the article clearly states that Jared is on Supernatural and identifies Genevieve as his former Supernatural costar, meaning she was also on the show. I don’t care if you don’t watch the show, it makes you look stupid to ask “Who?” when the article already told you who they are. Can’t you read?

Congratulations to the couple on the birth of their son; I’m glad he is healthy!

Linda J Hather on

I just wanted to say congrats on the new baby boy. I am also a very big Supernatural fan love watching you on the show ..
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Lolo on

So happy for them…I just love Jared and Genevieve and him make a beautiful couple. Little Thomas Colton is absolutely adorable, and I am sure this little guy will be no different. I am a Supernatural addict…just cannot get enough of my boys Sam and Dean! Many blessings to Jared and Genevieve at the arrival of their newest little miracle!

Yay for homebirth!

Congradulations to the family. Wonderful news for them.

Congrats To JWoww! She’s Pregnant!

Congratulations on your new baby cant wait to hear the name!!! πŸ™‚

Rachel on

Congratulations to Jared and Gen! And of course to big brother Thomas too πŸ™‚

To the ridiculous commenters who come on and say things like “Who?” There are plenty of celebrities I’ve never heard of but other people follow and love. Supernatural has been on for 8 seasons and is into its 9th, with a huge fanbase (or it wouldn’t still be on). So just because you don’t know who Jared and Gen are doesn’t mean others don’t.

Denise on

So happy for them! Supernatural is one of my very favorite shows!

Inkling on

Happy Birthday, Jared, and congratulations to you and your wife on you new son. Congrats on the success of your show too. I hope it great continued success.

Nasty on

Congratulations, I wish you happiness and health

Kris on

So happy for them!!!! Congratulations Jared and Gen! You have two beautiful boys now! Thomas and Shepherd. ❀ ❀ ❀

Katherine on

Shepherd is such a beautiful name. Really classy, I’m glad Jared and Gen are down to earth and pick absolutely normal name. Some celebs have no taste in names.

safa on

Again Congrats πŸ™‚ They chose a beautiful name for their son ! I like Shepherd ! May God Bless Padalecki Family ❀
