Actor Jared Padalecki is currently busy with the 13th season of U.S. TV hit series "Supernatural" which premiered on October 12, 2017. The actor has grabbed tremendous success as Sam Winchester from the series since 2005.

Along with the professional success, the actor also has maintained his married life with wife, Genevieve Cortese. Are you interested to know the relationship between the couple? How did they meet? We have all the details here.

The Relationship Of Jared Padalecki And Genevieve Cortese                          

Supernatural star Padalecki is married to Genevieve; an actress known for her role as Kris Furillo in the popular series Wildfire. The couple tied the knot in 2010 and is almost inseparable since then.  

Padalecki and Cortese first met on the sets of CW hit "Supernatural" in 2008 where Cortese made a guest appearance. Padalecki was immediately attracted to her

The 35-year-old actor said during a Supernatural panel in 2012:

"I was a single dude, and she was a pretty girl in her underwear on her first day on set. I was very excited to meet her. Meanwhile, I think she was like, 'Who is this long-haired A-hole who thinks he can come talk to me while I'm reading a book?' . . . I interrupted her while she was reading a book and I think she got kind of fussy about it."

The pair eventually started dating and Padalecki popped the question in October 2009 in front of their favorite painting, "Joan of Arc" at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

They officially announced their engagement in January 2010. The pair eventually tied the knot on February 27, 2010, in Cortese's hometown of Sun Valley, Idaho.

The pair shares a beautiful relationship and we can witness that on their Instagram account. Jared wished his wife on her birthday on 9th January and the caption literally melt our hearts. 

To my sweet angel, my dh, and the love of my life (and the only person who’s allowed to smush my nose into my face whenever they want) @nowandgen, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I’m so grateful to be sharing this world and this life with you. There is no me if there is no you. -hp
