While comedian Sarah Silverman has said that she is in no rush to walk down the aisle, the children of her boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, have their own ideas on the topic. Jimmy’s teenage son from his first marriage has been urging his dad to “put a ring on it” – and even offered to serve as best man at the wedding.
Jimmy Kimmel’s kids are begging their dad to marry Sarah Silverman – and it looks like they will get their wish!
“Jimmy and Sarah’s break from each other last year made them realize how much they love each other,” said a friend of the couple. “Jimmy’s children keep telling him he’d better marry her. They want to know the relationship is permanent and that they aren’t going to lose her again.”
The most recent marriage push came when Jimmy’s teenage son Kevin (he also has a daughter named Katie) dined with the couple at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills on Feb. 21. Jimmy and Sarah kissed repeatedly during the lunch – and his son seemed very happy for them, revealed an eyewitness.
“Jimmy’s kid kept talking about a wedding, and even told his dad that he’d like to be the best man.”

It’s nice that Sarah gets along so well with Jimmy’s kids. I bet she would be a pretty cool stepmom. But from what Sarah has said publicly regarding the subject of marriage, she doesn’t seem too eager to make it official. Maybe that’s changed since the couple has reunited. There were reports that the catalyst for them getting back together after their breakup last year was their friend Howard Stern’s wedding last fall- maybe the nuptials made Sarah change her mind.
