Jimmy Kimmel's baby son has successful second heart surgery


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

Jimmy Kimmel is now away from his late night TV show while his son recovers from heart surgery - so Neil Patrick Harris is filling in for him!

Neil Patrick Harris guest hosts "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on December 07, 2017.

"So there I am, in my living room breastfeeding Billy with my mom beside me, and we're watching". "I sobbed through the entire thing. I figured he'd tell the story and then he'd probably cry because, well, he once cried on the show over a lion dying".

"He didn't have to do that", she said. Since then, Kimmel has remained an active participant in the national health care debate and spoken out on other issues, including gun control.

Here's the "How I Met Your Mother" alum's best-received quip of the evening: "I'm what's known in Hollywood as a triple-threat: I sing, I dance, and I don't sexually harass people".

Kimmel's words - and tears - she said, came from his heart: "He had 14 writers sitting in a room ready to write, and he said, 'I got this, ' and went into his own office and closed the door".

Chris Pratt will be the first of several guest hosts filling in for the 50-year-old Kimmel, followed by Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy. "That was all him, all his heart".

This new update comes a few days after Kimmel's show rep told ABC News that Billy had undergone a "scheduled and successful" heart surgery. Our family has excellent health care; he had nothing to gain from that.

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

And while the couple do receive the occasional piece of hate mail, McNearney said the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
