Jimmy Kimmel Jess Cagle Parenting Interview

Jimmy Kimmel isn’t new to fatherhood, but it’s been a while since he’s had a toddler running around the house — until now.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host sat down with Jess Cagle, Editorial Director of PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly, to talk about a milestone he and his wife Molly McNearney are working on with their 2-year-old daughter Jane.

“We’re potty training her right now. And maybe this is some kind of karmic punishment for my time on The Man Show, but she wants to take her potty on the trampoline,” says Kimmel, whose early-2000s Comedy Central series costarring Adam Carolla featured a slow-motion segment of women in revealing clothing jumping on trampolines.

“And she’ll only go to the potty on the trampoline, which is insane,” Kimmel, 48, adds through laughter. “But that’s her. She’s a weird kid.”

Jimmy Kimmel has almost ruined Halloween for kids everywhere for the past few years, so it only seems fair that his own daughter would ruin his Mother’s Day plans for wife Molly McNearney.

During Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel shared the hilarious story of how 22-month-old Jane‘s antics stole the show on Sunday.

“I thought I nailed Mother’s Day this year. I thought I did a very good job,” he said. “In the morning, my wife and her mother and sister all went to get massages. While they were out, I made a fantastic brunch: waffles on the waffle iron, eggs, homemade biscuits. Good stuff, right?”

“It’s really great,” he says of parenting 15-month-old daughter Jane. “It does add a little bit of joy to each day. Maybe more than a little bit.”

Jimmy, you big (kinda) softy.

On Monday night, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel revealed pictures of his daughter, Jane – who was born on July 10 – though he did so in a decidedly Kimmel-esque manner.

Kimmel announced that on the show’s two-week hiatus, he did some painting around the house, grew a beard and, oh yeah, had a baby.

“[Wife Molly McNearney, the show’s co-head writer, and I] had a little girl, we named her after my grandmother — her name is Grandma Kimmel,” Kimmel continued. “Here she is with a bow on,” he said, cueing another pic. “She’s drunk as a skunk right there.”
