Jimmy Kimmel's son Billy's second heart op a success

Jimmy Kimmel's son Billy's second heart op a success

ABC released a statement, saying, "Jimmy's son Billy had a scheduled and successful heart surgery this morning".

Molly McNearney said her husband told her that he wanted to talk about their son, who was born with two heart defects and underwent nearly immediate open-heart surgery, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". "Jimmy told me today, the respirator is out", the How I Met Your Mother alum, 44, told the audience during his monologue.

"I'm thrilled his son Billy's heart operation was a success".

Harris noted that Billy is also eating and smiling. We are sending lots of love to the Kimmels. "Billy is a fearless little boy and it's heart-wrenching - literally".

Harris anchored Wednesday's show with guests Vanessa Kirby and Jules Sylvester while McCarthy will play host to Octavia Spencer and Dave Franco on Thursday. Kimmel got choked up revealing the news on his show and said that Billy would have to undergo a few more surgeries.

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.

Since then, Kimmel has been very outspoken in favor of making sure Americans, especially those with pre-existing conditions, have access to medical care.

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.

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

"We haven't gone to a coffee shop, filled up the gas tank, done anything without someone asking us how Billy is doing, and, thank God, we get to say something positive", she said.
