Jensen Ackles & his wife Danneel Harris are expecting their first child

I couldn’t care less, but I know many of you love your Supernatural boys (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) so this is me taking one for the team. Jensen is going to be a father! I was startled to realize that Jensen is already married – to One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris (I can’t with that first name), who is now Danneel Harris-Ackles. Danneel (UGH THAT NAME) is pregnant with their first child and they just announced it yesterday:

Supernatural star Jensen Ackles is about to step into his biggest role yet: dad. The 34-year-old actor and his wife, One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris, are expecting their first child later this year, his rep confirms to Us Weekly.

“Thank you for all the well wishes,” the mom-to-be tweeted on Jan. 7. “We are very excited about our soon to be new addition.”

Harris, 33, who also starred in the short-lived sitcom Friends With Benefits, accepted Ackles’ proposal in 2009 after three years of dating. The couple married in 2010 in the former Days of Our Lives actor’s hometown of Dallas, Texas.

Incidentally, the Supernatural family welcomed another little bundle of joy just last year, when Jared Paledecki (who plays Ackles’ onscreen brother) had a son, Thomas Colton, with wife Genevieve Cortese on March 19.

Yes, Jared’s son is already nine months old – we had photos of them last year. So Jared will be able to give Jensen some daddy advice. It’s nice. I don’t really see why ladies have such moistness for these two dudes, because it seems like they’re just two nice, average guys. Jensen even reminds me a little bit (facially) of Kevin Connelly. Right?

    Because nice average dudes are a rarity in Hollywood. That’s why.

  2. Isa says:

    I think Jensen is very good looking.

  3. gee says:

    Nice, average, BEAUTIFUL dudes.

  4. Dragonlady sakura says:

    I love Supernatural and think both guys are major hotties! Congrats on the little baby!

  5. Mia 4S says:

    Well that’s nice. I must admit I liked the show through Season 5, and then couldn’t be bothered. What is it, like season eight now? The leads range from good to OK but likely not good enough to compete in the big leagues, that’s why I can’t say I blame them for sticking with the show.

  6. Tiffany says:

    Can’t see it Kaiser. That’s alright. Some don’t get you love of Butler or Cumberbatch, but still love you for it. I love the show and like the two of them. Congrats.

  7. maria says:

    I’m really happy for them.

    I love how close these two are, humbled in their success, and bring fellow Texans doesn’t hurt! I just really hope all the fan girls leave her alone because they can be obsessive.

    I have watched this show since the beginning and it’s slowly picking back up.I just want my ninth season, lol.

    The world is getting another little Winchester.

    I like Jensen Eckles eventhough he is sort of a bland pretty boy he has charisma on screen. I’ve never been able to get into Supernatural though…congrats.

  11. NerdMomma says:

    Woohoo!!! Thanks Kaiser! Oh, these two should make the news more often. I guess they’re too well-behaved, so that’s a good thing.

    You can’t see it in stills. You must watch the show to understand the hotness. Oh, the pensive looks and soulful gazes. Marry me, Sam and Dean!

  12. Chicoulina says:

    Jensen Ackles has so much charisma and charm when you watch him play on the show or if you simply watch him talk in an interview. He is very talented and makes the best face expressions ever. You gals don’t know what you’re missing.
    The day has come that this gorgeuous man will have a child. I can’t wait to see the baby.

  13. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Pshh Kevin Connelly wishes he looked that good! In his dreams perhaps…
    Did not care for her character on OTH, but good for them. Both guys are hot.

  14. Ms Kay says:

    Weeeeee Supernatural really grew one me! At first I thought meh another show with 2 Abercrombie & Fitch looking dude but it is actually very good and with witty humour.

  15. Sachi says:


    Now Sam’s son will have a new playmate. :D

    I haven’t seen Supernatural since Season 6. I watched the first 5 Seasons in a row, and by Season 6 I’ve gotten pretty bored. Season 1 had some legit scary scenes, though. ;)

    I once read through some comments by Supernatural fanatics and they are quite scary in their theories about Jensen and Jared and their “true love”. Yikes.

  16. kpist says:

    Love Supernatural, and love Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester. I love it that they are low key compared to other celebs.

  17. Dani says:

    How do you pronounce her name? Danielle? Daneal? Dan-elle? So confused.

  18. embertine says:

    I’m not part of SPN fandom anymore, being another one that got sick of the shark-jumping at around the S5 mark. I do remember that Jensen is baby crazy though, so I wish him and his good lady well with what is probably a very much wanted little ‘un.

  19. Miss M says:

    Congrats to the couple!

    I used to watch Supernatural.

    I remember Jensen’ small role in Smallville and Jared used to be in the Gilmore Girls, :) .

  20. ab says:

    eric brady! I don’t watch supernatural but I keep an eye on jensen ackles news because I was heavy into days of our lives when he was on it.

    how does one pronounce danneel? please tell me it’s not danielle.

  21. Oi says:

    In my fantasy world, the SPN boys play John Ross (Jensen) and Christopher (Jared) on the new Dallas show. How good would that be?

    Congrats Dean!

  22. Jenna says:

    He’s HAWT. And super nice. Congrats! And Danneel is only her middle name. Her real one is Elta Graul. Oy.

  23. Maria_Spain says:

    Team Dean for ever ;)
    Congrats to Jensen :D

  24. SolitaryAngel says:

    OMG congrats!
    I love Supernatural and love these two; I agree with the poster above who said you just gotta see them in action to see the sex appeal. Wonderful show, but this season it’s been hard to watch because (*spoiler alert*) of Bobby being dead and Castiel isn’t around much. Cas is really sexy too–that VOICE! *shiver*

  25. Bijlee says:

    Wow these are some cute attractive couples. I wonder if they ever have swinger parties…. Anyways congrats to them.

    Just visited youtube. Jensen’s singing and joking around, and his truly lovely speaking voice, give me a clue as to what you’re talking about.

    Back in the 80s and 90s there were some great buddy movies. I don’t know if these two are too blond/Aryan to get cast in big movies, but I bet if someone could actually write a funny movie that would work to have two such ridiculously gorgeous guys in the lead, with a good story? I’d probably get into the theatre.

    Maybe there’s a fantasy film out there. Throw in Taylor Kinney (is that his name, who was in that gigantic flop?) And i’d probably put it on my calendar…

    • LAK says:

      Taylor Kinney is Lady Gaga’s BF. The only thing i can remember him from is a few episodes of Vampire Diaries. He is mainly a TV actor but has a small role in ZERO DARK THIRTY.

      I presume the person you are referring to is Taylor Kitsch. the flop actor of 2012. sad really because he was supposed to be the breakout star of 2012.

      i read a really funny industry review of the year in which it was concluded that the only way to avoid a studio flop was obviously NOT casting Taylor Kitsch. a cruel joke, yes. And the funny thing is that one couldn’t really blame his acting skills. He was just the common thread in all these big budget studio flops which were poorly conceived, and over blown and marketed.

      of course if you DID mean Kinney rather than Kitsch, then ignore my ramble and carry on…. :)

      • midnightmoon says:

        Nope, you’re right-Taylor Kitch. What is wrong with me that I know every female eedjit’s name and story but I cannot keep the (very few and far between) hunks’ names clear. Yes, sad TKitsch is gonna fall over the side while TommyGirl soldiers on!! Why why why?

  27. GoodCapon says:

    I used to have a big crush on Jensen when I watched the first few episodes of Supernatural.

    Congrats to the couple!!

  28. midnightmoon says:

    Maybe if Hollywood stops ordering comic book movies and retreads from the used screenplay pile from India, we might make a bit more money? There is a WHOLE LOTTA postmenopausal sex fiends (women!!) Who want some man meat inspiration!!

    I guess I have a new career :)

  29. onoris says:

    Not a fan of Danneel as a name, but when I found out her given name was Elta Danneel Graul, I was a bit more understanding…I might have picked Danneel over Elta. At least folks can call you Dani for short.

    I adore Jensen (and his name, it was even on my list of baby names if I ever had a boy!) and am happy for the expectant couple.

    That is going to be one good looking baby! Happy for them.
