Jimmy Kimmel’s Wife Pregnant With Second Baby
Hosting the Oscars is a pretty big deal, but it pales in comparison to the joy and excitement of expecting a new baby. Either way, Jimmy Kimmel must not be getting much sleep these days, because he's officially doing both!
On Monday night (December 5), the late night Jimmy Kimmel Live! host announced that his wife, Molly McNearney, is pregnant with their second child.
"My wife is hosting a baby inside her body, so that's what's coming," Kimmel joked happily while referencing his gig at the Academy Awards.
While the TV star dished on the excitement surrounding the couple's happy news, he made a point to note that they will be keeping the sex of the baby a surprise, for now.
"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," he shared. "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."
"So, there's a lot of exciting stuff going on," Kimmel added. "Congratulations to me. I'm hosting the Oscars and I had sex! Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible."
Kimmel and his wife already have one child together, a daughter named Jane, who was born in July 2014.
The late night TV host also has two children from a previous marriage: son Kevin and daughter Katherine with ex-wife Gina Maddy.
