The ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ host says baby Billy is ‘doing great’ but he has to undergo more surgeries to fix his heart defect.
Jimmy Kimmel gives update on his son Billy who was born with heart defect. The “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host reveals that the baby who went under the knife three days after his birth in April will need to have two more surgeries.
“Young Billy made his first visit to our office today. He’s juggling. He’s translating Flaubert from French into English,” the father of two jokes in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “No – he smiles. That’s pretty much it. He is very interested in ceiling fans. He likes those a lot. I could get him to pay the same amount for Netflix just to watch ceiling fans.”
All jokes aside, Kimmel says his son who is 3 months old now is “doing great.” The 49-year-old comedian adds, “We would like to get [the surgeries] over with and not have to think about it all the time, but it could definitely be worse.”
