It seems Jimmy Kimmel's parents were unfortunately left in the dark about their famous son's Oscars hosting gig!
"I forgot to tell my parents, and then they found out online," the 49-year-old TV star recently told [Entertainment Tonight](http://www.etonline.com/news/204581exclusivejimmykimmelsaysheforgottotellhisparentsabouthisoscargig/). "So, that’s probably the best feedback I got."

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!
"In February I'll be hosting the Oscars... And also, another thing I wanted to mention, my wife is hosting a baby inside her body. So, that's exciting!" Jimmy told his audience. Congrats!
