Jimmy Kimmel’s little girl is not so little anymore. She’s all grown up, and not only does she look unrecognizable, but also has an interesting career path.


Before the world knew the name Jimmy Kimmel, he had a daughter, Katie, at 24 with his first wife, Gina Maddie Kimmel.


Born in ’91, Kimmel’s daughter, grew up moving from place to place as the then radio presenter’s job required him to relocate frequently. Over two decades later, Katie looks nothing like the young girl she was. She lost the braces she had on, and from her Instagram pictures, it's evident she grew into a very confident woman.

Out of the four Kimmel children, the young woman had a more humble beginning that has today shaped the person she became.

The Mojave Desert resident learned from an early age to forge her path. It took her on a creative route, distinct from her famous father and costume designer mother.


After graduating high school, Katie, who didn’t know what to study in college enrolled at the Oxbow School in Napa Valley, California. There, she learned to tap into her creative side, and later said:

“It was amazing and life-changing. It was like a fast track to building confidence, especially surrounded by art.”

The time at Oxbow helped the artist decide to attend the School of the Art Institute, Chicago, and the rest became history. Today, she is a multimedia working artist, with a specialty in ceramics. Kimmel’s daughter also designs T-shirts and make food art with funny facial expressions.


Katie has also had a stint in acting and voiceover work. She joined her father on his “The Man Show,” and lent her voice to a puppet version of herself in, “Crank Yankers.”

Kimmel is exceptionally proud of his not so little girl, and his rise to fame is equally as prominent. After deciding that college was not for him, the Academy Award host left in his second year to pursue a career as a radio personality.


The work took him around the country, to Florida, Arizona, and Seattle. The Brooklyn-born TV host worked small jobs until he got a break with KROQ “The Kevin Bean Show” as “Jimmy the Sports Guy.”

Kimmel’s first television appearance was in’97, with “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” and he left in 2001 to create “The Man Show” on Comedy Central. By 2003, the Primetime Emmy host started the show he’s best known for till today, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Kimmel is now a primetime TV king and has no regrets about quitting college to pursue his passion. Katie, on her part, is still discovering her artistic side, but she’s proud of her accomplishments, and the occasional self-doubt only serves to reaffirm her belief that being creative is what she was born to do.
