Forget demon hunting for the time being. Jared Padalecki has got bigger priorities—like diaper duty.

The Supernatural star is going to be a dad again as he and his actress wife Genevieve Cortese are expecting their second child together.

Padalecki (sort of) announced the pregnancy to his Twitter followers Sunday after his manager confirmed the good news to People.

"Shoot! I got on a plane and THEN realized that my tweet wasnt finished! Not used to this 140 character thing. I confirm that Genevieve is pre," teased the actor.

Word that his 32-year-old missus had a bun in the oven first surfaced on Friday when Padalecki reportedly cradled her baby bump on the red carpet at a Comic-Con party in San Diego, Calif.—not a bad way to celebrate his 31st birthday.

The couple is already proud parents to 16-month-old son Thomas Colton.
