Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney are expecting a baby, RumorFix has learned.
The late night talk show host breaks the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday.
He joked: “I’m having a baby …wait I want to finish — with Ellen … No, I decided to have the first one with my wife.”
It could explain this photo on his Twitter handle:
So do they know the sex of the baby yet? Jimmy say, “I would like it to be a surprise and my wife Molly was happy with that idea until about a week ago she started saying we really need to find out. But I don’t think it matters. I don’t think you need to make the baby’s room blue or pink I mean it’s kind of — it’s inherently ridiculous. I don’t think they could even see colors, right? I mean or is that dogs I’m thinking of?”
And what about names? “I think Karate Kimmel has a great ring to it,” he joked.
“But depending upon the sex of the baby – Karate or The Riddler are the names we’re thinking of right now,” he adds.
And he even has a middle name in mind — Effin. “And not the curse version of it like e-f-f-i-n. Like Ellen Effin DeGeneres. I mean, what a great name,” he says.
Jimmy has a son and a daughter with his ex wife.
