Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney, is pregnant with the couple’s first child together! The late night host confirmed the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday, but Star readers have known about the pregnancy for weeks.

On Jan. 29, we exclusively revealed that the couple is expecting, and that the 46-year-old is ready for a third kid (he’s already dad to 22-year-old Kate and 20-year-old Kevin from a previous marriage). “He knew how much Molly wanted to have a child with him,” an insider revealed. “And all he wants to do is make her happy.”

At the time of our initial report, nearly four weeks ago, the couple wasn’t quite ready to announce the news themselves just yet. “They had been trying to have a baby for a while now, and feel like the luckiest people in the world,” the source added, at the time. “It’s still early in the pregnancy, so they want to wait a bit to make sure Molly doesn’t have any problems before they tell people.”

Jimmy and Molly got married last July.
