Comedian Jim Carrey and girlfriend Jenny McCarthy are celebrating–the actress/model is reportedly expecting their first child together.
The couple has been dating since 2005 and their happy news was made public by McCarthy‘s TV presenter pal Chelsea Handler on Tuesday night during her talk show on the E! network.
Making the impromptu announcement, she said: “And by the way, Jim, Jenny wanted me to tell you–she’s pregnant.”
Carrey has a 20-year-old daughter named Jane from his first marriage to actress Melissa Womer, while McCarthy has an autistic 5-year-old son, Evan, with her ex-husband, director John Asher.
