Kristen Bell Gives Update On Pal Jimmy Kimmel's Family

Kristen Bell filled in for Jimmy Kimmel last week while he was taking care of his family and now she’s giving an update on how they’re doing.

The 36-year-old actress served as one of the guest-hosts of Jimmy Kimmel Live after Jimmy revealed that his son was born with a condition that required open-heart surgery.

“[They're] good. Everybody’s home, everybody’s nursing, everybody’s gaining weight,” Kristen told ET. “Right after the show he said thank you so much again. First, early reviews are in with an attachment from his dad which was a very long text saying how much his dad loved the show. So really if Jimmy’s dad liked the show I feel like I don’t even need to know if anyone else enjoyed it. I’m cool with just knowing Jimmy’s dad enjoyed it.”

Pictured: Kristen, Kelly Rowland, and Rebecca Gayheart attend the Baby2Baby and Tiny Prints Mother’s Day Party on Saturday (May 6) in Los Angeles.

Snowboarder Shaun White Had Same Heart Condition as Jimmy Kimmel's Newborn Son - Watch Now

Jimmy Kimmel revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night that his newborn son Billy Kimmel was born with a heart condition and needed open heart surgery.

The 49-year-old talk show host’s guest that night, snowboarder Shaun White, comforted Jimmy while making his appearance, because Shaun had the same heart condition when he was a baby.

“I was probably just born. Similar situation like I was slowly turning blue,” Shaun said. “My parents knew something was up. The doctors came in found out that was the scenario—the heart condition—so I don’t obviously remember much at that point. I was so young.”

“It brought back a lot seeing that same exact photo with the tubes and the whatnot,” he added. “I have a lot of socks from when I was that age because the only thing my mom could dress me in was socks because she couldn’t touch me in my tube there.”

“You are an inspiration to a lot of families who go through this situation,” Jimmy responded. “It makes me believe that my son, too, is going to win Olympic medals for the United States of America.”

“We’re United Airlines,” Matt began. “We work hard to get you safely to your destination and that’s why we… You know what? No, no, I can’t do this anymore because I know what it’s like to get bumped. Trust me, I’ve been getting bumped from Jimmy’s show for the past eight years and it takes a toll.

Armie Hammer Almost Missed The Birth Of His Newborn Baby Boy Ford!

Armie Hammer almost missed the birth of his newborn baby boy – Ford Douglas Armand Hammer!

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (April 12), the 30-year-old actor revealed that he had to undergo surgery for a torn pectoral muscle in January, and had scheduled the procedure to take place after his wife Elizabeth Chambers was due to have their baby.

“Right before she was supposed to have the baby, I tore my pectoral muscle completely off my skeleton. I was in the gym with my brother-in-law, John; we were just working out,” Armie told Jimmy. “Basically, what happened is I tore my pectoral muscle. They went in and they opened it up and they go, ‘Your muscle is free. You don’t live very gently, do you?’ I was like, ‘No, I’ve never been accused of that.’ So, I’m walking around my house – really kind of hobbling – and my arm doesn’t work. It’s really kind of a sad thing. And my wife finally goes, ‘You know what? Just go get the surgery. Honestly, you’re not doing anybody any favors.’”

“So I go and get the surgery after she’s due, but she was was a little late with the baby,” Armie continued. “I go in for the surgery and then we’re thinking, ‘Now I’ve had the surgery; I’ll be able to help.’ But really, what happened was, I go in for the surgery and then I wake up in another hospital and all of a sudden my wife is having the baby. You know, ’cause I’m on medication and all that.”

FYI: Armie is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo suit during the interview.
