Padalecki’s announcement was met with cheers from the audience.

“That’s a big announcement,” co-host Richard Curtis said to him. “That’s incredible, congratulations.”

The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, are already parents to four-year-old Thomas and two-year-old Shepherd.

Padalecki, known as Dean Forester in ‘Gilmore Girls’, has previously opened up about trying to find the balance between fatherhood and his work.

“I am violently protective of my - I call it my ‘off-time’ - when I’m not working,” he told E! Online in 2014.

“I’m straight home and whether [the kids] are in Vancouver or they’re in Seattle or wherever we happen to be, I’m straight to them.

“But, simply put, there is no balance yet, but that’s okay.”
