Genevieve Padalecki is way more than just Jared's wife & co-star

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

Jared Padalecki's wife Genevieve is the matriarch of the cutest family ever

There's no doubt about it. Jared Padalecki and his wife Genevieve are pretty much the most adorable couple out there — and now that they're expecting their third baby, the cuteness is expanding.

Supernatural die-hards are already well acquainted with Genevieve, but for those who haven't watched the whole series, she's still somewhat of a mystery. Here are some things to know about her.

1. Supernatural brought her and Jared together

Genevieve became a series regular on Supernatural in Season 4 as Ruby, and quickly hit it off with Jared while on set. The rest, as they say, is history.

2. She's a classically trained actress

Genevieve holds a BA in English and a BFA degree in drama from the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. She's got an extensive theater background, and has performed in regional theater productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Crimes of the Heart, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

And she didn't go through the whole "struggling actress" phase, either. Genevieve revealed in a 2013 interview that she booked a pilot pretty much right off the bat when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an onscreen career.

3. She and Jared have matching nicknames

You've probably heard the moniker JarPad thrown around at one point or another, and Genevieve also lovingly refers to herself as GPad. Her Twitter handle is even @realGpad. So cute.

4. She makes ridiculously gorgeous babies

Thomas Colton Padalecki and Austin Shepherd Padalecki are pretty much perfect. We can't wait to see how adorable baby No. 3 will be!

5. She's got a major rock on her finger

Not that material things are the end-all, be-all when it comes to happiness in life, but Genevieve's 4-carat cushion-cut engagement ring is impressive.

6. She's a hardcore Duck Dynasty fan

Genevieve regularly tweets in support of the Robertson family and makes it no secret she watches the show every darn week.

7. She loves the outdoors

The whole Padalecki family seems to spend as much time outside as possible, and it sure looks like Genevieve is totally at peace when she is out in nature.

8. It didn't take JarPad very long to realize that she was "the one"

Jared told fans during a 2012 panel that he was instantly drawn to Genevieve as soon as she started working on Supernatural — and by Episode 6 of Season 4, he was pretty much head over heels.

"I thought she was beautiful like that," he said snapping his fingers. "And the first scene we filmed she's in her underwear! I was like ahhhh!"
