Jimmy Kimmel shared an update on his son Billy’s recovery after his third open-heart surgery. Billy, who is 7 years old, had the surgery a few weeks ago to fix a congenital heart defect he was born with.

Kimmel told Entertainment Tonight that Billy is doing great and seems back to his normal self mentally, but he and his wife, Molly McNearney, need to be careful with Billy for the next few months while he heals.

Kimmel described how resilient children are, explaining that doctors told him kids bounce back quickly because they are still growing. He hopes this surgery will be Billy’s last one needed to correct his heart condition.

Despite his busy schedule, including his late-night show and a new project, Kimmel remains very involved in Billy’s recovery. He joked about cutting out family time but explained that his new show only took a weekend to shoot, so he didn’t miss much time with his family.

This news highlights the challenges and joys of parenting a child with a serious medical condition, showing the strength and resilience of both children and their families.
