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.

Matt Damon Kicked Off United Flight by Jimmy Kimmel in Spoof Ad - Watch Now!

In a new spoof ad for United Airlines, which aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Matt Damon was kicked off of a United Flight and replaced by Jimmy Kimmel himself.

Matt and Jimmy have had an ongoing fake feud for years.

“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. We’re people, dammit, and we deserve to be treated with dignity, not told night after night, ‘Oh, there’s somebody more important so take a hike.’”

Turns out, Jimmy booted Matt from the flight himself. Watch below.

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.

Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out United Airlines For Forcibly Removing Customer from Overbooked Flight - Watch Here!

Jimmy Kimmel called out United Airlines on Monday’s episode (April 10) of Jimmy Kimmel Live! after a man was forcibly removed from a flight on Sunday night (April 9) because the company overbooked the plane.

“That’s how my mother used to have to get me out of bed to go to school,” the 49-year-old host joked, watching the video footage. “I don’t even understand this, by the way. I’ve been to 100 games in stadiums with 50,000 seats, they never sell the seat two times to one person, but for some reason, airlines cannot figure this out.”

After the controversy, United Airlines sent out a statement that Jimmy also mocked.

“This might be the worst part of all of it. This is what the CEO tweeted…. ‘This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers,’” read Jimmy. “That’s right. He said, ‘re-accommodate.’ Just like we re-accommodated El Chapo out of Mexico.”

“That is such, sanitized, say-nothing, take-no-responsibility, corporate BS speak. I don’t know how the guy who sent that tweet didn’t vomit when he typed it out,” Jimmy continued.

But I’m not good with this sort of thing and I’m sorry – especially to those of you who came here to see the show in person, because that’s probably not what you came for. But we lost someone that we and I love very much today.”

“There will never be another Don Rickles,” Jimmy said before showing the montage. “He was probably the greatest talk show guest of all time. Here he is: Mr. Warmth – Don Rickles.”
