CNN reports Jimmy Kimmel continues taking time from his show this week to be with his infant son Billy, who had heart surgery Monday.
ABC released a statement Monday, “Jimmy’s son, Billy, had a scheduled and successful heart surgery this morning.”
Billy (William John Kimmel) was born April 21 and found to have a serious heart problem, prompting open heart surgery a few days after birth.
Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy have been helping fill-in for Jimmy.
Kimmel continues being a strong advocate of child health care.
Prayers for Billy’s health improvement.
