“He’s lucky to be alive,” Jensen said. “And not only that, but he’s a home recovering which—the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car.”

Jensen shared that his close friend—who he starred alongside for 15 seasons on the CW show—was “recovering” and “sends his love” amidst his journey to return to full health. 

Although, Jensen noted, Jared is certainly feeling a little sore in the aftermath.

That airbag packs a punch,” Jensen explained, before adding that Jared told him it felt like he “went 12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson” following the incident.   

But he’s doing OK. He’s moving around,” Jensen told the audience. “Just keep him in your thoughts, send him some love if you get a chance on social and he’ll be back with us soon.”  

The actor then jokingly added, “He’ll be back messing up mic stands before we know it. It’ll be great.” 

Padalecki thanked fans on Twitter

Following Ackles’ comments, fans took to Twitter to send their best wishes to Padalecki, who responded on Tuesday.

“Hey y’all! I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love,” Padalecki wrote on Twitter, alongside a photo of himself and his daughter Odette. “I’m definitely on the mend and hoping to return to filming later this week.”

Padalecki went on to share his gratitude for his loved ones and for his fans. “I’m so lucky to have had the best care and be surrounded by people who love me. So grateful for everyone #SPNFamily #WalkerFamily #AKF,” he added.

Currently studying Communication sciences, when I’m not crying for university, I’m crying for TV series. I like running off into imaginary worlds because they’re way better than reality. Oscar nominated for mental movies. A perfect mix of Jane Sloan, Jessica Day and Clary Morgenstern (The book version, though). In my free time, I write articles and TV series reviews, so to combine two biggest passions of mine.
