Jimmy Kimmel, Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly

Jimmy Kimmel is more than just a late-night talk show host, he's also Martha Stewart! At least that's what his wife and Jimmy Kimmel Live! co-head writer, Molly McNearney, says about him.

"He makes vinegar, he makes pasta from scratch. He really is Martha Stewart," she explains in this week's Entertainment Weekly, as quoted by People. "I've never met a man that's so feminine and so masculine at the same time."

Kimmel's parents, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman and many others recall tons of anecdotes in the issue, but none are more revealing than McNearney's, who dishes on the comedian's softer side (who knew!).

"When we started dating, I would go back and forth between my place and his," she recalls. "I have my stuff at my house, and I like my own space. One time, he was in the bathroom for a very long time, and I just figured something was going on internally."

LOL that's probably what everyone assumes! But it turns out Kimmel was up to something altogether different. Get ready to aww!

"A few days later, he presented me with this big box that had two of everything in my makeup and Dopp kit, because he saw that I was lugging stuff back and forth, and he wanted me to be comfortable in his home," she continues. "He was in the bathroom for that hour and a half with my bag going through every single thing: every lotion, razor, deodorant, shampoo, makeup."

Listen up, boyfriends and husbands. You're going to have to step it up if you're going to compete with Kimmel. To be honest, he might have already destroyed the competition.

Adds McNearney, "He really is the greatest wife you could ask for."

It looks like these two have the best relationship! (But seriously step it up, everyone else.)

Kimmel and McNearney tied the knot in July 2013 after four years of dating. Just one year later they welcomed their first child, Jane, together. Kimmel has two other children from his previous marriage to Gina Maddy.
