They met on the set of the Supernatural S4 opening episode Lazarus Rising when Genevieve Cortese took over the pivotal role of Ruby the Demon who claimed to be on Sam Winchester’s side in the race to stop Lillith from freeing Lucifer. Sam Winchester is played by Jared Padalecki, who stars along with Jensen Ackles, who plays older brother Dean Winchester, in the hit series. Today EclipseMagazine got direct confirmation from Padalecki’s PR rep that he is indeed engaged to Cortese.
“Yes I can confirm that Jared and Genevieve are engaged,” the publicist for Jared Padalecki stated in response to our query about the engagement, which took place on October 24, 2009 in New York City where Genevieve Cortese is reported to currently reside. Padalecki resides in Vancouver, BC while he is filming Supernatural, which is now in it’s 5th season on The CW Network Thursday nights at 9PM.
Internet rumors state the wedding is to take place in late February of this year, but no official confirmation has been made regarding this.
EclipseMagazine wishes the happy couple all the best. Look for our continued coverage of Supernatural as new episodes of Season 5 return to the CW Thursday night lineup on January 21st at 9PM EST with the S5.11 episode titled Sam, Interrupted.
