NEW YORK (AP) - Jimmy Kimmel didn’t have to look too far for his new fiancée.

The ABC funnyman is newly engaged to girlfriend Molly McNearney. His spokesman, Lewis Kay, said Wednesday that Kimmel popped the question during a recent vacation in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

McNearney is the co-head writer for the network’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live." They started dating in 2009, after Kimmel’s breakup with comic Sarah Silverman.

Kimmel is 44 _ 10 years older than his fiancée. The engagement was first reported by People magazine.
