Jimmy Kimmel Proposes To Molly McNearney, She Says Yes!

Congrats! Late night TV host and soon-to-be Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel is engaged!

Kimmel popped the question to girlfriend Molly McNearney while the two vacationed at South Africa's Kruger National Park.

The couple have been together since 2009 and his future wife is the co-head writer on his show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Apparently Kimmel has a thing for funny women, his last high profile relationship was with comedienne Sarah Silverman.

Kimmel, 44, was married once to a woman named Gina Kimmel for 14 years, they have two kids together. Then in 2002, just months after his divorce he began dating Sarah Silverman. They stayed together for five years, called it off in 2007, got back together in 2008 but split for good a year later.

Then, much like his relationship with Silverman following his split from his wife, he immediately started dating Molly.

“After Jimmy and Sarah [Silverman] broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked,” a source once told People, “They’re really happy together.”

Fun Fact: Molly is currently the only woman who writes for “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” No wonder they got together. The dating pool kind of sucks.

Congratulations to the happy and funny couple!
