Showing she was apparently in good spirits following Jane’s arrival, Molly also posted a message to her Twitter page about giving birth.

“Kids, don’t do drugs. Until you have a baby. Then do ALL OF THEM,” she wrote.

Jimmy first broke the news that Molly was pregnant during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in February.
