Jimmy Kimmel announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he and new wife, Molly McNearney, are having a baby! The couple married last July after meeting on the late-night host’s show Jimmy Kimmel Live! where McNearney is a staff writer for the show. This is Kimmel’s third child and McNearney’s first and the couple couldn’t be happier.

This late-night host chose to announce this little miracle due to the 86th Academy Awards being Sunday, March 2nd with host Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel Live hosting the post-awards show.

Kimmel has two adult children from a former marriage, Katie, 22, and Kevin, 20. Based on his older children’s names it’d be no surprise if the third followed in its sibling’s footsteps with a ‘K’ name.

In fact, Kimmel had much input of the future child’s name and stated, “"I like the name Karate. I think 'Karate Kimmel' has a great ring to it. And you know, the Kardashians with the two Ks thing, you know, it's nice. But depending on the sex of the baby either 'Karate' or 'the Riddler.’”

He teased and continues on his baby naming rant by saying, “For real, I would like the baby's middle name to be Effin. Now imagine if your middle name [were Effin] and not the curse version of it. Like E-F-F-I-N. 'Ellen Effin Degeneres' ... It immediately gives you self-esteem."

Kimmel seemed to kid about these names, however it is Hollywood, and when it comes to baby names anything is possible!
