Jimmy Kimmel’s Wife Shares Photo Of Their Son After Baby’s Heart Surgery
Jimmy Kimmel’s screenwriter wife, Molly McNearney, shared a sweet photo of their newborn son on Twitter on Tuesday, May 2, after the late-night host revealed the baby had to undergo open heart surgery.
“I am thankful to love and be loved by these two brave guys. Both criers,” McNearney, 39, captioned a picture of Kimmel, 49, and Billy, who was born on April 21, smiling at one another while the newborn rests in his hospital bed.
As previously reported, Kimmel broke down in tears during an emotional monologue on the Monday, May 1, episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! He told viewers that just three hours after Billy’s birth, doctors at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles noticed that he had a heart murmur and appeared purple in color. They found that Billy’s pulmonary valve was blocked and there was a hole in the wall of his heart.
