Jimmy Kimmel is set to make another trip down the aisle!

The late night host is engaged to girlfriend of three years Molly McNearney, according to People.

Jimmy, 44, proposed to Molly, 34 – a co-head writer on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” – during a trip to South Africa’s Kruger National Forest, the mag reports.

The soon-to-be-spouses began dating in 2009, after Jimmy split from Sarah Silverman.

The upcoming nuptials will mark the first marriage for Molly, and the second for Jimmy. The TV host was previously married to Gina Kimmel from 1988 until 2002. They have two children together.

In addition to wedding planning, Jimmy has another big event to prepare for – he’ll be hosting the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards on September 23.
