Jimmy Kimmel's son Billy 'recovering well' after 2nd heart surgery

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

He's even waded into the national health care debate.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! guest host Neil Patrick Harris was happy to report that Jimmy Kimmel's son is "recovering very well" after undergoing his second heart surgery earlier this week.

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

Now, Kimmel's wife, Live! producer and co-head writer Molly McNearney, has shared her perspective on the events that both led to and followed her husband's watershed moment. "I sobbed through the entire thing".

His wife sat home and watched. "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", she recounted to THR.

After Kimmel emotionally announced his son's medical scare during his opening monologue, McNeary recalled feeling proud of the "strength" the late-night host conveyed.

Jurassic Worldleading man Chris Pratt will host Monday's show with guests Margot Robbie and Chris Stapleton. "He did it for the other people whom we met in that hospital". "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. That was all him, all his heart".

"Jimmy and I can't go anywhere without someone coming up and thanking him for that monologue", said McNearney, who's also shares a daughter, Jane, 3, with the host.

Kimmel's infant son, Billy, had his third scheduled and successful heart surgery on Monday morning.

Kimmel broke down in a 13-minute monologue on May 1 when he disclosed Billy's surgery, then immediately pivoted to the discussion about health care.

Of course, some have accused the couple of "politicizing" their son's heart problem, which McNearney says is nonsense.
