Jared Padalecki’s Christmas present came a bit early this year. The Supernatural hunk’s wife, Genevieve Cortese, gave birth to the couple’s second son just three days before the holiday.

Jared and Genevieve welcomed a healthy baby boy on Sunday, December 22, 2013. The proud papa didn’t tweet the news instantly, but instead chose to wait a day before sharing about the new arrival on Twitter.

It started around noon on December 23, which Jared sent out a playful tweet. “Hey yall- gen and I did, indeed, experience a holiday miracle yesterday: Tony Romo didn't senselessly throw the game away!!” he wrote.

Gen was already showing by the time she and Jar confirmed her pregnancy back in July, so it seemed safe to assume that Jared wasn’t exactly talking about football. It wasn’t until 7pm that night, however, that Jared officially confirmed the news on Twitter.

“Ok. For real ;)” he wrote. “My amazingly strong wife home-birthed a happy and healthy baby boy last night :). Please send love :))”

No word on the little guy’s name so far, but he joins older brother Thomas Colton, born on March 19, 2012. Congrats to the family on their new addition! Sometimes, the best Christmas presents really don’t come wrapped in bows at all.
