Jimmy Kimmel is gearing up for fatherhood a second time around. The late-night host, 46, revealed that he is expecting a baby with wife Molly McNearney, 35, during an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" set to air this Wednesday. "I'm having a baby … wait I want to finish … with Ellen," Kimmel joked, before clarifying to the audience that it's with his bride of seven months, who also happens to be a co-writer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" This will be the first child for the couple, who wed last July, but the third for Kimmel, who has two children — daughter Katie, 22, and son Kevin, 20 — from his previous marriage. Though he's already experienced parenthood, Kimmel told DeGeneres he's "really forgotten everything" about taking care of a little one. "It's funny because I was just with some friends [John Krasinski and Emily Blunt] who just had a baby I was like, 'Oh, ya.' And there's new ways to do things. You hold them by the front of the neck now it seems." In addition to learning the latest baby techniques, he and his kids are also going to have to adjust to him being an "old dad." "I told my daughter, 'Listen, there's only so much love I have to give. You're gonna have to split it up with the new kid. There's a finite amount of love and that's that,'" he teased. "So [my children] are dealing with it, but it is very weird at my age to, you know … I'm going to be one of those old dads."

Paula Deen is back!
The celeb chef, 66, made her first public appearance since settling the racial discrimination lawsuit that practically destroyed her empire, and was moved to tears after receiving a 10-minute standing ovation at the Metro Cooking & Entertaining Show in Houston on Saturday. "These are tears of joy, y'all," she said. "This is my first time out in three months. … The one place I wanted to make my first step out was in Texas. You are forgiving folks with hearts as big as your state." She added, "We all experience pain in some way, but pain is also a good thing because it makes you grow."
Following her emotional outburst, Deen quickly pulled herself together and, after joining sons Jamie and Bobby for a cooking demo, strutted up to a cameraman's lens and proclaimed, "I'm back!"

Sigler, 31, was snapped while shopping in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday with her adorable pooch. Though the actress looked cute and casual in her jeans, a striped top, and sandals, there was nothing casual about her massive bling! Get a load of that rock.
The mom-to-be also popped into the Cheesecake Factory to pick up some sweets for her sweetie (either that or she was having some major pregnancy cravings) and shared a photo of the delicious treats on Instagram.
