Sweet baby Jane! Fresh off of paternity leave, Jimmy Kimmel finally showed off photos of his newborn daughter — and she’s friggin’ adorable! But don’t take my word for it. See the cuteness for yourself below:
The big reveal happened during Monday’s taping of Kimmel’s late-night show, the Daily Mail reports. Naturally, the proud dad devoted his monologue to life with Jane, starting with her July 10 delivery. “My wife is doing fine, I’m fine too,” he told the audience. “I was so brave. I cried a little but I didn’t scream. You guys would’ve been very, very proud of me.”
The third-time dad — he has two older children from his first marriage — is clearly smitten with his baby girl. Explaining that he’s taking “somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 pictures of her a day,” he joked that Jane has finally had enough. “She thinks I’m with TMZ.” He and wife Molly McNearney have also set the bar pretty high for themselves as parents. “Rest assured we’re going to do everything in our power to make this the best baby since a cute little guy named Jesus,” he said.
Check out the full monologue — and see the rest of Jane’s baby photos!

It’s a girl for Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney! According to Us Weekly, the funny man’s wife delivered their daughter, Jane, this morning, and it didn’t take long before the proud dad shared the news with the world.
“Congratulations to my beautiful and very tough wife @mollymcnearney on delivering our baby girl this morning,” he tweeted. A few minutes later, he followed up with, “Thanks for all your kind baby wishes—turns out, not ALL tweets are mean!”
Not to be outdone, Molly — a co-head writer on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” – also tweeted, “Kids, don’t do drugs. Until you have a baby. Then do ALL OF THEM.”
This is Molly’s first child; Jimmy has two other children, Kevin and Katherine, from his first marriage. The couple, who have been together since 2009, were married in July 2013. Congratulations to the new parents — we can’t wait to see the baby pictures!
