Congratulations to my beautiful and very tough wife @mollymcnearney on delivering our baby girl this morning— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) July 10, 2014
The 46-year-old later added:
Thanks for all your kind baby wishes - turns out, not ALL tweets are mean!— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) July 10, 2014
The comedian is already father to son Kevin and daughter Katherine, both in their 20s, from his first marriage, while this is Molly's first child. He initially announced her pregnancy on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in February.
"It's funny, because I was just with some friends who had a baby. I was like, 'Oh, yeah.' There's new ways to do things," he said at the time, joking that he and his wife were considering "Karate or The Riddler" as possible baby names.
Congrats to the new parents!
