Supernatural hunk Jared Padalecki and his wife Genevieve have just brought a new bundle of joy into the family! The unnamed baby boy arrived in Seattle, which is just across the border from Vancouver, where Padalecki films Supernatural. An avid Twitter user, Jared announced his wife’s pregnancy on the site and asked fans to donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in lieu of gifts. Well, Supernatural fans extended their hearts and wallets and donated a collective $37,740, which the couple says they will be matching. Congratulations to them both! With the seventh season winding up, click the jump to see what Jared says about the likelihood of another year of the hit show!
Jared recently stated that, while the show has yet to be picked up for an eight season, he is all for it. ”Gen and I are both hoping for Season 8, actually. With as many hours as we work, and as much as I travel back and forth, it’s a crazy life, but on the flip side, we’ve built a family in Vancouver. Our crew, our cast — we’re close to everyone. We know what to expect. When I told them that Gen was pregnant and due in March, they were immediately like ‘Okay, we’re going to get you some time off.’I didn’t even have to ask. You can’t do that if you’re doing some big movie with Tom Cruise.”
We know a lot of you are Supernatural fans, so you’ll be happy to hear it sounds like we could be getting another year of the drama. Are you still tuning in? Let us know in the comments!
