Jimmy Kimmel broke down Monday night when discussing the live-saving heart surgery his newborn son underwent at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Kimmel’s son Billy was born with what doctors soon diagnosed as a heart defect. He was rushed from Cedars-Sinai to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where Dr. Vaughn Starnes performed successful open-heart surgery.
Kimmel took to his Jimmy Kimmel Live primetime talk show Monday to thank everyone, including the doctors at CHLA, for nursing his son back to health.
