The father of three told the world about his happy news at work last night (December 5th 2016). The new addition will be their second child together, along with 2-year-old Jane. Jimmy and Molly, who is the co-writer for 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', have been together since 2009 and married four years later. Jimmy also has two children - son Kevin and daughter Katherine - from his marriage to Gina Maddy with whom he split in 2002.

'My wife, is hosting a baby inside her body', he quipped. 'So that's what's coming.' He added that the pair of them have chosen to keep it a secret about whether they are having a boy or a girl, so even they are going to surprised in nine months time.

'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', he continued. '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, I've come up with two: No. 1 Dyson after the vacuum or Gelatin with a J. No? That's exactly what my wife said.'
