Next Year 2017 Just Keeps looking Good and awesome for the Jimmy Kimmel: He’s going to be a dad for the second time again!
Secretgist can affirm that Jimmy Kimmel’s wife Molly McNearney is pregnant with the couple’s second child.
During tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host spoke about the family news as well as his recently announced hosting gig for the Oscars.
“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.”
Kimmel, who also revealed Monday that he will host the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in February, told audiences, “Also, my wife, is hosting a baby inside her body. So that’s what’s coming.”
He quipped, “So — there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on. Congratulations to me. I’m hosting the Oscars and I had sex. Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible.”
The new addition will join big sister Jane, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter. Kimmel also has an adult son and daughter from his first marriage: Katie and Kevin.
