Jimmy Kimmel Tearfully Reveals Son's Birth & Open Heart Surgery (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel has revealed that his wife Molly recently welcomed their second child together, a baby boy named William “Billy” Kimmel, and he underwent a successful open heart surgery days after he was born.

The 49-year-old late night talk show host opened the Monday (May 1) episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live with an emotional monologue in which he tearfully talked about what he went through in the hospital following his son’s birth on April 21.

Billy underwent open heart surgery after it was discovered that he wasn’t getting enough oxygen, which was caused by a heart issue.

At the end of the monologue, Jimmy encouraged viewers to donate to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as no family should have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.

Jimmy‘s show will be guest hosted by his friends this week while he is on paternity leave.
