And a baby makes four!

E! News can confirm that Jimmy Kimmel's wife Molly McNearney is pregnant with the couple's second child.

During tonight's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host spoke about the family news as well as his recently announced hosting gig for the Oscars.

"My wife is hosting a baby inside her body, so that's what's coming," he joked with the audience.

"We got the ultrasound, which is weird because it's like you're already spying on the baby—but we asked the technician not to tell us whether we're having a boy or a girl. Our plan is to let the child decide for itself. We want that to be a surprise, but I have been trying to think of names that would work for a boy or girl. So far, all I've come up with is Dyson, after the vacuum, or Jelatin with a 'J'. No? That's exactly what my wife said."

Kimmel concluded his monologue by sharing, "So, there's a lot of exciting stuff going on. Congratulations to me. I'm hosting the Oscars and I had sex. Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible."

Back in July 2014, the late night show host announced via Twitter that his wife McNearney gave birth to their first little bundle of joy.

"Congratulations to my beautiful and very tough wife @mollymcnearney on delivering our baby girl this morning," he wrote for the world to see. In a second message posted just a few minutes later, he added, "Thanks for all your kind baby wishes—turns out, not ALL tweets are mean!"

This will mark McNearney and Kimmel's second child, and Kimmel's fourth as he is also a father to son Kevin and daughter Katherine from his first marriage to Gina Maddy.

Kimmel and McNearney tied the knot in Ojai, Calif., back in July 2013 in front of close family and friend, including several famous faces like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Matt Damon and his wife Luciana, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, and Ellen DeGeneres and Porta De Rossi.

Congratulations to the Kimmel family on their exciting pregnancy news!
