As a biography, Genevieve was born as Jennifer Cortese in San Francisco, California on January 8, 1981. Her family moved to Sun Valley, Idaho when she was a little girl.

This beauty finished her college career with degrees in Drama and English from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She is a professional stage actress and loves snowboarding, surfing, jogging, and reading books.

Genevieve is famous for her role as Kris Furillo on the t.v series ‘Wildfire’. In 2008, she played an evil demon called Ruby, in Supernatural. There she met the love of her life, Jared Padalecki – who plays Sam Winchester in the CW tv show. The 29 year-old actress and the t.v hunk started dating after they met in 2008, while filming Supernatural’s fourth season. They had some super hot sex scenes together and kept their relationship very low key. But after rumors of engagement swirled around the couple, reps for the actor confirmed the news and announced a Jared and Genevieve engagement in January. Last month, she celebrated her bridal shower in California while Jared was at the Supernatural 100th episode party in Vancouver.

E! reports, Jared’s oldest brother, Jeffrey was his best man, but his co-star and fictional Supernatural brother, Jensen Ackles was one of the groomsmen. The couple exchanged vows and celebrated with family and friends. Congratulations to the newly wed couple and Happy married life!!
