Late night host Jimmy Kimmel has a baby on the way.
The “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host revealed he and wife Molly McNearney are expected their first child together, during an interview with Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” airing Wednesday.
“I’m having a baby…,” Jimmy said, before joking, “…With Ellen.”
Already a dad to two adult children, Jimmy said he’s getting used to the idea of becoming a dad two decades after his last child was born.
“I have a 20-year-old son and a 22-year-old daughter and I’ve really forgotten everything,” he told Ellen. “It’s funny because I was just with some friends who had a baby and I was like, ‘Oh yeah…’ And there are new ways to do things.”
“It is very weird at my age… I’m gonna be one of those old dads,” the 46-year-old added.
Jimmy said he is hoping to keep the sex of his child a secret until the little one’s arrival, but he joked he already has a name or two ready.
“I like the name Karate. I think Karate Kimmel has a nice ring to it,” he joked. “And the Kardashians with the two K’s thing, you know, it’s nice, but depending on the sex of the baby either Karate or The Riddler are the names that we’re thinking of.”
