“I’ve really forgotten everything. It’s funny because I was just with [friends and neighbors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt], who just had a baby and I was like, ‘Oh yeah. And there’s new ways to do things,’” Jimmy tells Ellen.

Jimmy is already dad to son Kevin, 20, and daughter Katie, 22, from his previous marriage to Gina Kimmel.

“I told my daughter, ‘Listen, there’s only so much love I have to give — you’re gonna have to split it up with the new kid. There’s a finite amount of love and that’s that,’” Jimmy jokes. “So they’re dealing with it, but it is very weird at my age. I’m going to be one of those old dads.”

Jimmy Kimmel Wants Baby’s Sex To Be A Surprise

Jimmy and Molly are undecided about finding out the sex of their baby so far.

“I would like it to be a surprise and my wife was happy with that idea until about a week ago,” he says. “She started saying we really need to find out. But I don’t think it matters. I don’t think you need to make the baby’s room blue or pink — it’s inherently ridiculous. I don’t think they can even see colors.”

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Should Jimmy and Molly keep the baby’s sex a surprise? Will Jimmy be a good dad to his baby? Let us know!
