Jimmy Kimmel gets parenting tips from a precocious 6-year-old

Jimmy Kimmel is going to be a father this summer, as he mentions occasionally to his viewers. And like a lot of soon-to-be dads, he says he's nervous about his very rusty parenting skills (Kimmel already has two older kids, Katie and Kevin, both in their early 20s, from a first marriage). On Thursday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live he sought out advice... from a 6-year-old girl named Aylah. Kimmel plays the fool, but Aylah really does know a lot about infants. Seriously, she could teach a class. And Kimmel? He'll probably make a fine new father (again), but here's betting he's already a pretty popular uncle. --Peter Weber
