Jimmy Kimmel's New Baby Has a Plain Jane Name (We Love It!)

There's been baby news upon baby news this week in Hollywood, and Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, are the latest celebs who have welcomed their new additions. Kimmel and McNearney had their baby girl yesterday and have given her quite the all-American name: Jane.

In typical comedian fashion (McNearney is a head writer for Kimmel's late night show), both took to Twitter to share their news:


Sounds like it might have been a hard labor and delivery, and filled with plenty of drugs, but baby Jane is finally here. And it was a little bit of a surprise to boot: Kimmel and his wife chose not to know the sex of the baby during pregnancy.

But they had plenty of time to prepare a name. Ultimately, though, it looks like Kimmel's original baby name ideas lost out. Karate Kimmel? The Riddler? Effin? Maybe next time, Jimmy. Jane clearly won out. It's a simple name, isn't too popular (was number 355 on the Social Security Administation's top 1,000 list in 2013), but perfectly rolls off the tongue. Jane Kimmel. Cute, no?

Congratulations to the family!

What do you think of the name?
