Los Angeles - Jimmy Kimmel has become a father again.

The chat show host has announced he and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed a baby girl - their first child together - into the world on Thursday morning.

Revealing the exciting news on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he said: "I'm having a baby . . . wait I want to finish . . . with Ellen. No, I decided to have the first one with my wife. We got married in July and, you know, it's interesting. It's disgusting the way babies are made."

Jimmy already has children Katie and Kevin with his ex-wife Gina, who he split from in 2002, but he admitted earlier this year that he was worried that he would be out of practice when it comes to looking after babies.

He took to Twitter on Thursday night to thank fans for the"kind baby wishes".

Molly also took to Twitter, joking about the pain endured when giving birth:

Ellen Degeneres was one of the happy wishers on Twitter:
