Posting a snap of himself with his hands over his face while on stage at the convention, he wrote: "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."

He added: "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." Jeffrey and Hilarie, who share a seven-year-old son, Gus, appeared together at the Emmy Awards in September, where Hilarie revealed her growing baby bump. Jeffrey opened up about fatherhood when Gus was a baby, telling E! News the experience had been "spectacular," and adding that being a parent meant "a lot of not sleeping". The couple regularly share snaps of their son on Instagram, and Jeffrey recently posted a snap of the three of them enjoying a day out together. He wrote: "Kazoontight!! Pumpkin patchin it up after hay maze... hay fever hitting NOW."
