Genevieve Cortese and Jared Padalecki announced the birth of their second son yesterday.

Padalecki tweeted the happy news earlier today (24 December), writing "My amazingly strong wife home birthday a happy and healthy baby boy last night," adding to his fans "Please send love."

The 31-year-old actor also took to Twitter to announce the news of his wife's pregnancy in July.

The couple met on the set of the drama series Supernatural, on which Padalecki stars as Sam Winchester, whilst Cortese continues to have a reoccurring role on the show as Ruby. They have been married since February 2010. Cortese and Padalecki have one son together, Thomas Colton, who is nearly two years older than his sibling. Padalecki regularly tweets about his family and recently uploaded selfies of him and his son posing during the Supernatural episode on 26 November, as E! reported. 

Padalecki and Cortese are not the only couple to be bringing home a new arrival just in time for Christmas. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman announced the arrival of their second son together yesterday (23 December). The baby, who was born over the weekend, has been named Kaius 'Kai' Jagger Berman. Although a fairly unusual name, it is not as unique as Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll's choice for their son: Bear Winslet!
