It’s the great baby Hollywood baby swap! Yes, that is Supernatural star and swoon-worthy Hollywood hunk Jared Padalecki in the photo before you. And yes, Jared is a new dad.
But the baby he’s holding in this picture isn’t his newborn son, Shepherd, 7 weeks. It’s Mavi Amell, the 4-month-old daughter of Jared’s fellow CW star, Stephen Amell. Stephen, who weekly bares his abs as the titular superhero on the CW’s Arrow, welcomed his first child back in October.
So how did Stephen’s little angel end up in Jared’s arms? Well, the Arrow star doesn’t seem to be entirely sure. “Out of nowhere @jarpad sent me a photo of him holding my daughter,” Stephen tweeted the second week of February. “Assuming my wife left me and he's her new Dad.”
Jared quickly retweeted the photo, but we notice he didn’t bother to either confirm or deny whether Stephen’s wife had left him. (Kidding! Stephen and his wife, America’s Next Top Model’s Cassandra Jean, are happily married. And seeing how Jared and his wife, Genevieve, can’t stop gushing about their two adorable kids on Twitter, we’re guessing there’s no way these two would ever do some sort of creepy CW hunk wife swap.
But if they did, somebody pitch it to the network. We’re pretty sure that would make one heck of a reality show!
