Jimmy Kimmel Posts Pictures Of Now Healthy Billy After Congenital Heart Disease

As You all surely remember, James Christian Kimmel, popularly known as Jimmy Kimmel, an American television host, comedian, writer and producer opened up about his son having some holes in his heart after birth, called congenital heart disease. A speech he made on his talk show back in May.


Little Billy was born on April 21st, and as Jimmy explained, “He appeared a normal, healthy baby.” But then, about three hours later, a very attentive nurse at Cedars-Sinai heard a murmur in his heart and noticed he was a bit purple, which is not common.

“From there, the medical staff figured out that “he wasn’t getting enough oxygen in his blood, either in his heart or lungs. It was “a terrifying thing,” and we can certainly believe it. Eventually, a heart surgeon came in to explain that little Billy was born with a congenital heart disease, one that had created “a hole in the wall of the left and right side of his heart.” He explained. Little Billy had to undergo surgery to repair the holes and he’ll still need another, but he’s expected to be just fine.

It was a heart touching story, poor little lad but the good news is that Billy is now three months old and looks healthy.

“Billy is 3 months old & doing great,” “Thnx for the love & support.” Jimmy tweeted with pictures of little Billy beaming with smiles.
