(LOS ANGELES) — Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, welcomed their baby girl earlier this month.
Now, the talk show host is introducing her to the world.
“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,” he said on his show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night. “You know how we did it? We made it out of sex.”
Kimmel, 46, said his wife, 36, is “doing fine” after giving birth to baby Jane.
“I’m fine too. I was so brave,” he added. “I didn’t scream. You guys would’ve been very, very proud of me.”
Describing his daughter as having a “tiny” head (“Her head’s the size of a plum!” he marveled), he explained that her name has a sentimental origin.
“We named her after my grandmother,” he explained. “Her name is Grandma Kimmel.”
The comedian, who also has two adult children from a previous marriage, said that he’s been busy taking thousands of photos of his baby every day and re-learning how to parent a newborn.
“It’s interesting how much you forget. Did you know they don’t eat pizza at this stage?” he said with a smile. “Rest assured we’re going to do everything in our power to make this the best baby since a cute little guy called Jesus.”
