The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host's rep confirmed the engagement but didn't provide any further details.

Kimmel, 44, and 34-year-old McNearney, a co-head writer on his show, started dating in 2009. 

"After Jimmy and Sarah [Silverman] broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked," a source tells People. "They're really happy together."

The marriage will be Kimmel's second -- he was previously married to Gina Kimmel with whom he has two children -- and the first for McNearney.
