Jimmy Kimmel is about to be a dad for the third time!

The late-night host revealed the happy news while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week:

“I’m having a baby,” Kimmel stated flat-out when Ellen asked him about his “big announcement.”

The 46-year-old funny man couldn’t get by without making at least a couple of jokes though, as he continued to reveal that the mother of his child is in fact, Ellen.

In reality, the baby will be Kimmel’s first with wife Molly McNearney, who he married last summer. Kimmel also has two children from his previous marriage, son Kevin (20) and daughter Katie (22).

When it comes to the gender of the baby, Kimmel says that as of now, he and Molly are planning to be surprised, but he does have a couple of names picked out.

“Depending upon the sex of the baby, either Karate or The Riddler,” Kimmel tells Ellen, but regardless of whether it’s a boy or a girl, the comedian is gunning for “Effin” as a middle name.

We don’t know about you, but we kind of think naming a child Karate Effin Kimmel would be amazing!
