Feb 25 2014 - 9:19am

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, are expecting their first child together [1]! The talk show host confirmed the news in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres [2] that airs on Wednesday, saying, "I decided to have the first one with my wife." It'll be the first child for Molly, who is a writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the third for Jimmy, who has a son and daughter from a previous marriage. In the Ellen interview, Jimmy joked, "I told my daughter, 'Listen, there's only so much love I have to give — you're gonna have to split it up with the new kid. There's a finite amount of love, and that's that.' So they're dealing with it, but it is very weird at my age. I'm going to be one of those old dads."

Jimmy and Molly began dating in 2009 and tied the knot in July 2012 [3]. The star-studded guest list included Jennifer Aniston [4], Ben Affleck [5], Matt Damon [6], and close pals John Krasinski [7] and Emily Blunt [8], who recently welcomed a baby of their own [9]. Watch Jimmy spill the beans about his wife's pregnancy to Ellen DeGeneres [10] below. Congrats to the happy couple!
