We know so much about Jimmy, but what about his kids? Below, HollywoodLife gathered everything you need to know about the comedian’s four children.

Katie Kimmel

Katie Kimmel was born in 1991. She came into the world three years after the marriage of her parents. Jimmy was 24 when Katie was born and he was struggling financially. “I was working from 4 a.m. until about 11 a.m., and at the time my ex-wife was also working,” he said in a 2017 interview with Vulture. “So I was going to get Katie from daycare as fast as I could, because we couldn’t afford the $5 an hour to keep her there any longer. I would have it all day until 6 or 6:30, when my ex-wife got home. It was a difficult program. I was exhausted all the time. »

But Jimmy and Gina – who divorced in 2002 – have done a great job raising Katie. She went to college at the School of Art Institute in Chicago and now she has her own business selling her own homewares and artwork, which she promotes on Instagram. In September 2021, Katie married her longtime boyfriend Does Logsdon. Jimmy appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show before the wedding and spoke so well of his son-in-law. “I’ll tell you, the guy is awesome,” Jimmy said. “His name is Will and he’s a great guy. And if he wasn’t, he would be dead instantly. That’s how it works in my family.

Kevin Kimmel was born in 1993. His parents divorced when he was 10, but he maintained a close relationship with them as he continued to grow. Kevin frequently posts his famous father on his Instagram, where he is very active. He even partially followed in Jimmy’s footsteps by pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. He has worked in the sound department on several TV shows including Survivor And Big brother.

Kevin got married to his girlfriend Nicholas at Jimmy’s Fly Fishing Lodge in Idaho in September 2022. Kevin always gushes about his wife in the sweetest Instagram posts. On Valentine’s Day 2023, Kevin took a photo of Nicole and wrote, “Happy Valentine’s Day to the love of my life and the love of her life French Lemon Walnut Cake from coco @nicolekimmel.”

Jane Kimmel

Jane Kimmel, Jimmy’s third child, and his first with Molly McNearney, was born in July 2014. Jimmy revealed that Jane was named after his grandmother. “It’s really great,” he said PEOPLE in 2015 about raising Jane. “It adds a bit of joy to every day. Maybe more than a little.

Before Jimmy had Jane, he admitted he had forgotten what it was like to raise babies, as Kevin and Katie were both born over 20 years earlier. “It’s funny because I was just with friends who just had a baby. I was like, ‘Oh, you.’ And there are new ways of doing things,” he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Over the years, Jimmy has shared the cutest stories about baby Jane both on his talk show and on social media. In 2020, he revealed that Jane, who was only 6 at the time, was extremely invested in the outcome of the presidential election. In September 2022, Jimmy revealed that Jane had lost her first tooth and the “tooth fairy” had left her $20!

Billy Kimmel

Billy Kimmel, Jimmy and Molly’s youngest child, was born in April 2017. Billy was born with a congenital heart condition and required three heart surgeries. Jimmy has been very open about Billy’s heartbreaking health issue. “It’s a terrifying thing,” Jimmy said on the May 1, 2017 episode of his show. “You know, my wife is back in the recovery room, she has no idea what’s going on, and I’m standing in the middle of a lot of people looking worried – kind of like right now – trying to figure out what the problem is.” Jimmy also called Billy’s open-heart surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles “the longest three hours of my life.”

Every year on Billy’s birthday, Jimmy expresses how grateful he is for the medical care his son received at the hospital. When Billy turned 5, Jimmy wrote on Instagram, “Happy 5th birthday to our crazy little one. We are forever grateful to the brilliant doctors & nurses at @ChildrensLA & @CedarsSinai for saving Billy’s life & those at between you whose donations, prayers and positive thoughts meant everything Please support families in need of medical care.
