Jimmy Kimmel gets real talking about his newborn’s open heart surgery

Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel has always worn his heart on his sleeve. His heart-felt tribute to comedian Don Rickles just a few weeks ago resonated, but nothing like this.

Kimmel’s new born son just survived open heart surgery and an emotional Kimmel tearlfully shared what happened to his family while he was absent from his late night television show. So glad he prefaced it with “it’s a happy ending” or it might have just about killed me. Anyone who’s had a child in NICU can understand the emotional roller coaster he and his family were on. Thankfully, his son William is relatively healthy following surgery.
