Three days after Billy's birth, Kimmel and his wife learned their son needed to have open heart surgery after doctors discovered Billy was born with tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, a congenital heart disease. Six days after he was born, Billy was able to leave the L.A. hospital and go home.
Following his tearful monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live recounting the experience, the dad joked: "Poor kid. Not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face."

Following a successful surgery, Kimmel revealed Billy is doing well, adding that his newborn son would have to undergo future surgeries in the coming years. “We would like to get [the surgeries] over with and not have to think about it all the time, but it could definitely be worse,” the talk show host told The Hollywood Reporter.

BILLY KIMMEL LIVE
One week after undergoing his second heart surgery in December 2017, Billy, 7 months, joined Dad live on air. “He’s fine everybody, he may have pooped but he’s fine,” the 2018 Oscars host told viewers as he held back tears. “Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn’t… it’s unbelievable.” Later, he added, “Billy is doing great, by the way. He has one more surgery – this is amazing – he had an operation a week ago. They say he’ll probably on track to win at least a bronze medal at the Olympics in 2036.”
