Jared Padalecki Announces Baby Name, Poses with Newborn

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jared Padalecki is one of TV's hottest stars - and he's also quite the proud papa. 

The Supernatural actor welcomed his second son on December 22 and now he and his wife Genevieve Cortese are revealing the bundle of joy's name. 

Say hello to little Shepherd!

Genevieve took to her Twitter account to post a squee-worthy photo of father and son.  ue the collective oohs and ahhs!

 "@jarpad and Shepherd watching some late night #supernatural," she wrote. 

Looks like Shepherd's already of fan of daddy's work. (And if you are, as well, be sure to watch Supernatural online over at TV Fanatic!)

Jared responded: "Ok. There it is, my wife @realGpad just revealed Tom's little brothers name.... Here goes."

Padalecki's Tweets are sure making headlines of late, and not just the ones related to his family.

He recently threw some shade at Justin Bieber via the social network. Following Lil Za's cocaine arrest, he implied (or straight up accused, really) that Bieber paid his pal to take the fall.

"Hey @justinbieber, how much are you paying your friend for pretending that it was HIS cocaine, and taking the fall for you?" Jared asked. 

Who knew he was so invested in drama pertaining to the Biebs?  We'll surely be following @jarpad from now on. He's quite the juicy tweeter!

What do you think of Jared's baby's name? Compare Shepherd to some of the more unusual celebrity baby names now: 

North West
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

The name Shepherd isn't really a popular first name. What is the kid's nickname going to be... Shep? German? The parents should have kept with the first normal names, like they did for the first kid. The kid should be an Andrew or a Nick or a Luke, something like that. Common names are usually not popular in Hollywood actors which is sad. Now-a-days kids will weird names end up changing them when they get older. If parents don't want their kids to be bulled, maybe parents should stop giving them weird names.
(I wish the family all the best) :) If Jared wasn't rich and famous, would he still pick the name shepherd?
