Jimmy Kimmel Introduces Daughter Jane

Meet Jane Kimmel.

Proud papa Jimmy Kimmel introduced his newborn daughter on his show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday. “We’ve been off work for the last two weeks. We’ve actually been on vacation. I got a lot done. I painted a mirror in my house. I grew this beard. Oh, and I had a baby also. My wife and I made a baby. You know how we did it?” Jimmy, 46, asked. “We made it out of sex.”

The funnyman and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed their first child together on July 10. He went on to share their daughter’s name.

“My wife is doing fine. I’m fine, too. I was so brave. I cried a little but I didn’t scream. You guys would’ve been very proud of me,” he joked during his opening monologue. “We had a little girl. We named her after my grandmother—her name is Grandma Kimmel. No, we named her Jane.”

The late-night host went on to share a shot of his daughter “freshly out of the womb.” He added: “Do you know they come out wearing clown makeup? It’s the weirdest thing. She went a little bit heavy on the foundation.” The next picture showed the newborn wearing a bow: “She’s drunk as a skunk right there.”

Another shot featured the father-of-three caressing his daughter’s face. “You can see, her head’s like the size of a plum. She weighed 6 lbs., 1 ounce, 20 inches long,” the comedian said. “Just above the legal limit.”

A fourth picture showed Jane smiling. “We showed her her first Tyler Perry movie and she loved it,” he joked. And in the fifth and final photo, Jane hid her face from the camera. “I’ve been taking in the neighborhood of 10,000 pictures of her a day and she’s finally had enough of it. She thinks I’m with TMZ now,” he joked, adding, “I have a 22-year-old daughter and a 20-year-old son already, but it’s interesting how much you forget. Like, did you know they don’t eat pizza at this age?”

He then referenced his security guard and sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez.

“Caring for a new baby is kind of scary but fortunately I’ve had a lot of practice someone who sleeps most of the day and always wants a bottle. So thank you, Guillermo. You’ve prepared me very well,” Jimmy joked.

The funnyman also has two other children, Kevin, 20, and Katie, 22, from his first marriage to Gina Maddy.

    What a gorgeous baby! Kinda love that she’s named Jane; it’s so normal yet you’d be hard pressed to find another baby wearing it.

    Yep, she’s a Kimmel alright! That crooked smile/smirk stamps her for sure. Precious.
