After the announcement, the actor, whose show is currently in its seventh season, was barraged with congratulatory tweets from all over, even from a fellow CW star, former One Tree Hill actor, Chad Michael Murray, who tweeted "Congrats!!!" 

And, Padalecki didn't stop tweeting there. He also instructed well-wishers on where to send gifts, writing "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."

Genevieve plays a recurring character, Ruby, to Jared's Sam on the show.
