Supernatural star Jared Padalecki and wife Genevieve Cortese have named their newborn son Thomas Colton, the actor's rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Born Monday, he is the first child for the couple, who wed in Sun Valley, Idaho on February 27, 2010. Padalecki, 29, had previously told Us they would be taking their time before naming their little one.

"We don't want to put it out there, like try and turn him into something before we meet the kid," the actor said in January. "We want to get a feel for who this kid is before we name him."

In addition to his leading role on Supernatural, Padalecki's TV and film credits include Gilmore Girls, New York Minute, House of Wax and Friday the 13th. Cortese, 31, appeared on 12 episodes of Supernatural.
