NEW YORK (AP) — Jimmy Fallon may be the late night host with a new show, but Jimmy Kimmel has reason to celebrate, too.

Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney are expecting their first child together, his rep Lewis Kay confirmed Monday.

The TV personality first made the announcement during a taping of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," airing Wednesday.

Forty-six year old Kimmel already has two children, a 20-year-old son and 22-year-old daughter, from a previous marriage.

It will be 35-year-old McNearney's first baby.

The couple got married last July.

McNearney also is the co-head writer of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
