As much as we like to see him on screen, we can’t deny that we are a little curious about his life behind the camera. So instead of wondering, here is all the information you need to know about Jared Padalecki’s wife, his children and the place they call home.
Jared Padalecki’s Wife
Jared got herself an actress and it’s not really a shocker. It’s not uncommon for celebrities to get married and multiply among each other. Supernatural has been on air since 2005 and with all this activity (supernatural and natural) it might not have been so easy to meet ladies. So it’s not surprising that our own Sam Winchester, a co-star, got married.
Her name is Genevieve Nicole Cortese, also known as Genevieve Padalecki, and she had a recurring role in Supernatural as Demon Rubin. This was probably the beginning of her journey on the way to Jared Padalecki’s wife. Don’t get yourself wrong when it comes to titles and roles, she is more than just Jared Padalecki’s wife.
She has a few feathers in her hat, by herself. She is better known for her recurring role as Kris Furillo in the TV series Wildfire, in which she had a special relationship with Wildfire, a horse that saved her from slaughter and made her a master racehorse.
Anyway, back to the love story that’s brewing. The two met on Supernatural’s set for the fourth consecutive season. One thing led to another and the two started dating, but it wasn’t until 2009 that Jared decided to take their relationship to the next level.
Padalecki turned out to be very romantic when he finally asked the question. According to Heavy, in October 2009 he proposed to Cortese to stand in front of her favorite painting at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. In January 2010, the couple officially announced their Engagement.
So on February 27, 2010, in Genevieve’s hometown, which is Sun Valley, Idaho, they tied the knot and 7 years later they seem to be doing pretty well. Of course, Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles was a best man.
Jared Padalecki’s Kids
The star has two children, both boys, with his wife Genevieve. First, they had Thomas Colton Padalecki on Monday, March 19, 2012. Their lovely four-year-old looks are as happy as ever. When they first announced that they were expecting their first child, the Padalecki’s decided to do something very interesting.
They decided to hold a small fundraiser and asked the fans to donate to the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Here is what the star has worked out for his fans: Let’s make the world a brighter place for those who aren’t so lucky. He also announced on March 4th that his wife and he would raise every dollar collected until their bundle of joy arrived.
The fans raised over $40,000 in cash for the hospital and remained true to their word as they kept it. Next, on December 22, 2013, the couple welcomed their second child, Austin Shepherd Padalecki. Both brothers have a Facebook fan club and are the sweetest mini-celebrities out there.
Here is some more good news for the Padalecki family, the trio is about to become a quartet. Yes, there is another baby on the way. The Supernatural star revealed the good news of Live! With Kelly. That’s what he said when I started the show [Supernatural], I was 22 years old, I was single, I did my thing, now I’m 12 years older, I’m the father of two now, in March I’ll be the father of three children”.
Jared Padalecki’s House
Jared always knew he wanted to settle down and start a family in Austin, Texas. He did exactly that in 2012 when he and his wife Genevieve Cortese Padalecki moved into a 10,600 square meter building. Texas Lodge. First of all, the couple decided to transform the house into a child-friendly environment.
That doesn’t mean they live in a playhouse, of course, but the couple tried to find a refined yet comfortable look. So for the general design of the house, they opted for a rural theme and built-in many large couches to make the house more comfortable and relaxed.
Some people love an abstract artwork of a self-portrait hanging on one or two walls. The Padalecki’s were more sentimental in this respect. The couple framed copies of their son’s footprints hanging on their walls, among other remarkable memorabilia.
Jared admitted that his favorite part of his home is the men’s cave, which is actually his home office. Everyone loves to be in their own room from time to time. He told people that it is his first stop when he comes home, and it is also the place where he enjoys the time alone with a little bourbon and his guitar while enjoying his temporary freedom from his “worldly responsibilities.”
