Congratulations are in order for Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney!

The TV host announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that the pair were expecting their second child together. 

He broke the news while talking about his upcoming hosting duties at the Oscars – saying his wife was also playing host… to a baby!

Although we are a little concerned with the baby names the 49-year-old has suggested so far…

“My wife is hosting a baby inside her body, so that’s what’s coming,” he joked with the audience.


“We got the ultrasound, which is weird because it’s like you’re already spying on the baby—but we asked the technician not to tell us whether we’re having a boy or a girl.

“Our plan is to let the child decide for itself. We want that to be a surprise, but I have been trying to think of names that would work for a boy or girl.

“So far, all I’ve come up with is Dyson, after the vacuum, or Jelatin with a ‘J’. No? That’s exactly what my wife said.”


He finished the announcement with a typical gag. Gotta love him. 

“So, there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on. Congratulations to me,” he said.

“I’m hosting the Oscars and I had sex. Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible.”

Jimmy and Molly had their first child, Jane, in 2014, while the talk show host also has two children from his previous marriage – Kevin and Katie.
