Jimmy Kimmel and Wife Molly Expecting a Baby

By: Pam Wright - February 26, 2014

Jimmy Kimmel revealed that he and new wife Molly McNearney are expecting their first child on a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show set to air Wednesday..

“I’m having a baby…wait I want to finish…with Ellen,” he joked. “No, I decided to have the first one with my wife.”

The couple — who got engaged in 2012 in South Africa — married last summer in Ojai, Calif. with a multitude of stars on hand for the ceremony.

Kimmel, 46, already has two children with his ex-wife, Gina: 20-year-old son Kevin and 22-year-old daughter Katherine.

McNearney is co-head writer on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The couple started dating in 2009.

On Tuesday, Kimmel offered some advice to Joel McHale who is going to Washington to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on May 3.

“Did you know that the President Barack Obama will be there?” asked McHale, “Of the United States.”

“Should I go blue? What do you suggest? Just curse it up?” McHale asked.

“Cursing is not a great idea. I don’t think cursing is a good idea,” Kimmel said.

Kimmel admitted to McHale that he had never been “more nervous in his life” and actually started cleaning his hotel room “like a lunatic.”

“Like you were on cocaine or something?” McHale joked.

“You know I went and got a huge coffee beforehand and that was a mistake,” Kimmel said. “And I was already nervous to start with and I turned into a member of the housekeeping staff.”
