“I’m not sure I was supposed to reveal this,” he continued with a laugh. “But nobody told me not to. I consider this their fault.”
Jimmy first announced he's hosting the 2017 Oscars — set to air on Feb. 26! — during Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, Dec. 5. He subsequently revealed he and his wife, Molly McNearney, are expecting Baby No. 2!
