Jimmy Kimmel ties the knot with Molly McNearney

Kimmel marries hisco-head writer

Jimmy Kimmel is having an amazingly good year. First, his show was moved into the coveted 11:35 p.m. time slot, and now... he's a married man!

According to, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host's rep has confirmed that Kimmel married Molly McNearney, his co-head writer, at a ceremony in Ojai, California, on Saturday, July 13. The 45-year-old host reportedly proposed to McNearney, 35, last year while on vacation in South Africa. Who knew the funnyman could be so romantic?!

Sources said the wedding included a Friday rehearsal (Duh. Don't they always?) and some very big-name guests. Supposedly in attendance were Ben Affleck, Matt Damon (Kimmel's real true love), Howard Stern, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. After Kimmel and Damon's long-standing and good-humored feud, we wonder whether Damon "gave away" the groom.

Kimmel seriously has a way with attracting the ladies... to his show >>

This was McNearney's first wedding but Kimmel's second. Kimmel was previously married to Gina Kimmel from 1988 until 2002, when they were divorced. Kimmel had two children with Gina, but whether or not they attended this wedding has yet to be disclosed. While he didn't marry comedian Sarah Silverman, Kimmel did date the hilariously potty-mouthed actress for seven years before they parted ways. After that, Kimmel and McNearney began dating, and it's been smooth sailing ever since — at least to our knowledge.

We wish them the best of luck!
