It’s A Girl! Jimmy Kimmel Welcomes New Baby With Wife Molly McNearney – ‘Congratulations To My Beautiful And Very Tough Wife’

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

The comedian and his wife welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, Thursday morning. Kimmel opted to share the news in a popular way – via Twitter – soon after the baby was delivered.

He announced in February on Ellen that he and his Jimmy Kimmel Live! writer wife were expecting in a way that only the funnyman could say it.

“I’m having a baby . . . wait I want to finish . . .with Ellen. No, I decided to have the first one with my wife. We got married in July and, you know, it’s interesting. It’s disgusting the way babies are made,” Kimmel joked.

The late night show host already has children Katherine and Kevin with ex-wife Gina Maddy, whom he divorced in 2002.
