Jimmy Kimmel and new wife Molly McNearney are expecting a baby together.

It's the first child for the couple who wed last summer in a star-studded ceremony in Ojai, Calif.


Kimmel revealed the news during a taping of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," set to air Wednesday. "I'm having a baby…wait I want to finish…with Ellen," he joked before getting serious. “No, I decided to have the first one with my wife," he said.

Kimmel, 46, already has two children with his ex-wife, Gina: a 20-year-old son and 22-year-old daughter. 

McNearney is co-head writer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" The couple started dating in 2009 and got engaged in 2012 in South Africa.
