Gilmore Girls and Supernatural star, Jared Padalecki, and his wife Genevieve Cortese have welcomed a daughter to their increasingly adorable brood.

Team Gen!

He-Will-Always-Be-Dean-from-Gilmore-Girls-To-Us-Jared and wife Gen announced baby Odette’s arrival via Instagram just a few short hours ago, an obviously snuggly new addition to their gang.

Odette was born on March 17th and is a baby sister for the couple’s sons, 4-year-old Tom and 2-year-old Shepherd.

“Please welcome the newest Padalecki, Odette Elliott!!” Gen posted to her brand new Instagram account, alongside a shot of herself cuddling up to her newborn.

“Spread the love”

The mum-of-three was keen to make the most of Odette’s arrival.

She seized the opportunity to raise awareness for two causes close to her heart – Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign – sharing the release of some cute monogrammed heart-shaped tags that will raise funds for her chosen organisations, alongside the birth announcement.

“I wanted to celebrate this special occasion by collaborating with one of my favorite brands, @popandsuki, to raise funds for two amazing causes: Planned Parenthood and Human Rights Campaign, who need our help now more than ever. Help us spread the love and joy Odette has brought us by monogramming your own heart tag,” Gen explained.

Indeed you really can join the Padelecki gang and snaffle your very own heart tag – in Cotton Candy (pink!), Noir (black!) or Bluebell (um… blue!) – at Pop & Suki. Baby Odette really wants you to!

Far from Stars Hollow

Gen and Jared met on the set of Supernatural, when Gen was playing a demon, going on to marry in 2010 and start a family together.

Jared’s currently shooting a new season of the series (Season 12!), obviously in-between getting to know this new little person and enjoying the little sister baby bubble with his boys.

A huge congrats to this Stars Hollow regular and his ace wife on the arrival of their gorgeous girl!
