AceShowbiz - Jared Padalecki has given fans an update on his condition following a near-death car accident. Greeting his online devotees on Instagram, the "Supernatural" actor revealed that he's currently "on the mend."
Making use of Instagram, the 39-year-old shared a photo of him and his cute daughter. In the caption, he wrote, "Hey y'all! I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love. I'm definitely on the mend and hoping to return to filming later this week."
"I'm so lucky to have had the best care and be surrounded by people who love me," the Texas native added. "So grateful for everyone #SPNFamily #WalkerFamily #akf."
On Sunday, April 24, Jared was forced to skip a "Supernatural" fan convention after he was involved in a crash. While speaking to the crowd at the event, his co-star Jensen Ackles said, "[Jared] sends his love. I spoke with him yesterday. He's sad he can't be here...But he is doing ok, and he's moving around. But yeah, [it was a] really, really bad car accident."
Sharing more details, Jensen continued, "He was in a very bad car accident. He wasn't driving. He was in the passenger seat, and he's lucky to be alive." The "My Bloody Valentine 3-D" actor further explained, "That airbag packs a punch. He's like, 'I feel like I went 12 rounds with [Mike Tyson],' " before concluding, "Just keep him in your thoughts, send him some love if you get a chance on social [media] and he'll be back with us soon. He'll be back messing up mic stands before we know it. It'll be great."
Fans have since showed their support and well-wishes for Jared by trending #WeLoveYouJaredPadalecki and #GetWellSoonJared on Twitter. "@jarpad Sending lots of love and positivity your way for a fast recovery. Take good care of yourself and we will be here waiting to welcome you back with open arms," one fan in particular tweeted.
