The Padaleckis are raising the bar for celebrity birth announcements

The Supernatural star Jared Padalecki and his wife Genevieve Cortese welcomed their newest addition to the Padalecki family on Friday, March 17.

Odette Elliott will join their two insanely cute sons, Shepard, 3, and Thomas Colton, 5, in their family home in Austin, Texas.

Cortese Padalecki announced their daughter’s birth on — where else? — Instagram. The couple used their announcement not only to brighten your day with a snuggly baby picture, but also to raise funds for two charities in need.

Collaborating with accessory brand Pop & Suki, the Padalecki family showed off two personalized leather hearts created especially for their daughter. By purchasing a monogrammed heart tag, $20 from each leather heart will be donated to Planned Parenthood, which supports women’s health, and the Human Rights Campaign, which supports LGBTQ rights.

"Help us spread the love and joy Odette has brought us by monogramming your own heart tag. They are super limited edition so will run out quickly!" Cortese Padalecki wrote in her caption.

The Padalecki's have now morally justified our obsession with celebrity baby births — how's that for a memorable birth announcement?
