Jimmy Kimmel's son Billy 'recovering well' after 2nd heart surgery

The 50-year-old talk show host and wife Molly McNearney welcomed their second child William John, known as Billy, into the world seven months ago, and were devastated to learn he had to undergo life-saving heart surgery after doctors discovered he had a congenital heart defect, but surgery went well on Monday. He is recovering very well.

After reporting that Kimmel's son Billy's heart operation was a success, NPH said: "I would do anything for Jimmy".

Harris also announced that Billy is eating and smiling after his successful December 4 operation, which is all "good news". "We're sending lots of love to all the Kimmels", he added. Billy is a courageous little boy. "And I'm so glad he's doing well".

Jimmy Kimmel shared this photo of his son Billy on Instagram on October 21, 2017.

The network also announced that Jimmy will be taking time off to spend with his family and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' will be hosted by a series of celebrity guests this week.

"So there I am, in my living room breastfeeding Billy with my mom beside me, and we're watching".

Little did McNearney or Kimmel realize, the remarks would strike quite a nerve in the public discourse as debate over health care was heating up at the same time. I couldn't believe the strength that it took to tell that story a week after it happened. He did it for the other people whom we met in the hospital. "I thought he meant at The Oscars".

"Jimmy and I can't go anywhere without someone coming up and thanking him for that monologue", McNearney said.

"If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make".

As Kimmel stays home to be with Billy, guest hosts are filling in for him: Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis Ross, Melissa McCarthy and Harris.
