It’s only natural that actor Jared Padalecki is super excited, he and his wife have a baby on the way!

The 29-year-old actor announced that wife Genevieve Cortese is pregnant.

“OK yall I’d rather you officially hear it from me … So, yes. Genevieve is pregnant,” the CW star wrote on Twitter. “We’ll be welcoming a new member to our family in 2012.”

It appears his legions of “Supernatural” fans flooded his Twitter account with well-wishes and questions about where to send baby gifts.

“PLEASE PLEASE send gifts not to us, but to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital! Lets make the world a brighter place for those not as fortunate,” the actor wrote in another Tweet.

The former “Gilmore Girls” star, who played Dean on the series, married Genevieve, who also once starred on “Supernatural,” in February 2010.

“Supernatural” airs Fridays at 9 PM on The CW.
