On Monday, Jimmy Kimmel, host of the late-night ABC talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," delivered a stirring monologue to open his show. With tears in his eyes, the host revealed that his wife had recently given birth to a beautiful baby boy.
But soon after, a nurse realized there was something wrong.
"Billy was born with heart disease," Kimmel said. "At just three days old, he would need open heart surgery."
The surgery was successful, though horrifying. "It was the longest three hours of my life," Kimmel said. The child will require multiple other procedures in his early life, as well.
