As previously reported, the 35-year-old One Tree Hill alum confirmed her pregnancy in September, debuting her growing baby bump while attending the Primetime Emmy Awards in L.A. along with her husband.
Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan confirmed they are expecting at 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards
Days later, during a Q&A at a Supernatural convention in New Jersey, Jeffrey accidentally revealed the sex of their baby. He shared a photo a fan captured of his shocked expression on his Instagram page.
Check it out.
Whoever took this picture?? Caught a moment... thank you. We shall cherish.... I texted @hilarieburton right after I spilled the little girl beans... and, as usual... she was a rockstar. After all these years she's come to expect me to be a dope... thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless. Thank you New Jersey, and the incredible @cw_supernatural family! Love ya all, and had a blast seeing you. And most of all... all the love in the world to my boys... @jensenackles and @jaredpadalecki it's always too little time together... but it's always special. I miss ya both. Xojd
The couple, who married in 2014, are already parents to a 7-year-old son Augustus. Shortly before welcoming the newborn, Jeffrey exclusively opened up about becoming a father for the second time as he appeared at the Walking Dead season 8 premiere event in L.A. in October.
He said at the time,
I’m very excited. I think in my life, I think that being a dad is my favorite thing in the world, bar none. So the opportunity to do it again, and maybe not screw it up as bad as I have already, that would be great.
