Late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, proposed to co-head writer for his show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Molly McNearney.

Reuters reports that the 44-year old comedian proposed to the 34-year old writer while the couple was vacationing in Kruger National Park in South Africa.

According to People Magazine the couple, who began dating in October of 2009, are “very happy together.”

“After Jimmy and Sarah [Silverman] broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked,” a source revealed to People.

Kimmel’s relationship with Silverman lasted five years before the two comedians split in March of 2009. Prior to Silverman, Kimmel’s marriage of 13 years ended in early 2002. This is McNearney’s first marriage.

Kimmel will host the upcoming Prime Time Emmy Awards on September 23 in Los Angeles.
