A second baby on the way makes four for Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host broke the news that the couple is expecting their second child during Monday night's episode, and it's clear that 2017 is shaping up to be full of blessings for the comedian.

The prank king, who garnered rave reviews during his Emmys stint back in November, addressed the news that he is set to host the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in February, joking that his goal is to "somehow get arrested during the hosting of the show."

As if that wasn't big news enough, the late night emcee also revealed another highlight of the upcoming year, telling the audience, "Also, my wife, is hosting a baby inside her body. So that's what's coming."

The couple, who are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Jane, apparently plans to wait to find out the sex of their newborn and are busy brainstorming gender-neutral monikers.

The 49-year-old joked, "So far, I've come up with two: No. 1 Dyson after the vacuum or Gelatin with a J. No? That's exactly what my wife said."

"So—there's a lot of exciting stuff going on. Congratulations to me. I'm hosting the Oscars and I had sex. Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible," the TV personality concluded.
