‘Supernatural’ star Jared Padalecki shares his excitement over becoming a first-time dad.

Jared revealed that he and wife Genevieve Cortese are expecting a baby boy! He shared: “I originally had the intuition that it would be a girl — shows what I know! I grew up in a family where the oldest sibling was a boy and I appreciated the extra guidance and protection. As cheesy as it sounds, I really want, and wanted, nothing more than a healthy baby.”

Jared says that they’re going to wait for the baby’s arrival to decide on a name for him: “We’ve thrown around countless names, probably every one in the books and a few that we kind of made up. But we both agree that we’d like to meet our child before we decide [on] a name.”

In the meantime, he says that they’ve been reading every parenting and baby book they can get their hands on:

“With Gen being an English major, and me being the son of an English major, and both of us loving to read, we have taken to reading all of the books that we can.”
