Jimmy Kimmel’s baby son is “doing great” after undergoing heart surgery. 
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! late-night talk show host and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed their second child together, a son named Billy on 21 April, but the baby required surgery for a rare congenital heart defect at three daysold.
Jimmy has now shared that Billy has recovered well but will need to undergo two more procedures in the future.
“He has to have two more open heart surgeries,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “We would like to get them over with and not have to think about it all the time, but it could definitely be worse.”
The comedian added that Billy was hitting normal milestones and had even made a visit to his office. And like most babies, the tot is easily entertained.
“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,” joked Jimmy.
The 49-year-old TV host also shares three-year-old daughter Jane with Molly, as well as daughter Katherine and son Kevin with his ex-wife Gina Maddy.
