Expect to hear lots of cute baby stories and diaper-changing anecdotes on Jimmy Kimmel Live from now on, because the talk show host is a father again! Jimmy Kimmel and his wife,  Molly McNearney , welcomed their first daughter together, Jane Kimmel, on July 10.

Jane is one of those great timeless names that’s not exactly old-fashioned, but is classic, pretty and always in style. We’ll refrain from calling her Baby Jane, though, due to the creepiness of the Bette Davis and Joan Crawford classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, but maybe she’ll get a “Janie” moniker until she’s a little older.

Jimmy announced the news by tweeting, “Congratulations to my beautiful and very tough wife @mollymcnearney on delivering our baby girl this morning.” He followed up with, “Thanks for all your kind baby wishes—turns out, not ALL tweets are mean!”

Molly also tweeted, “Kids, don’t do drugs. Until you have a baby. Then do ALL OF THEM.”

We hear you, Molly!

Jane joins Jimmy’s son and daughter, Kevin, 20 years old, and Katie, 22 years old, from a previous marriage. Jimmy and Molly tied the knot last July.
