Jimmy Kimmel is offering thanks after his family respected a child kid into the world. On Monday night’s all-new Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late-night have started his show with an opening monolog that was no laughing matter.
Rather, Jimmy reported that his better half Molly McNearney respected a baby boy named William John Kimmel on Friday, April 21.
Three hours after he was born, however, nurses and doctors noticed something uncommon about the newborn. For reasons unknown, the couple’s baby was born with a heart disease that required open heart surgery.
“On Monday morning, Dr. Vaughn Starnes opened his chest and fixed one of the two defects in his heart. He went in there with a scalpel and did some magic that I couldn’t even begin to explain,” Jimmy explained while trying to hold back tears. “He opened the valve, and the operation was a success. It was the longest three hours of my life.” This past Sunday, Jimmy and Molly’s child could leave the clinic and meet his new home.
“He’s doing great. He’s eating. He’s sleeping. He peed on his mother today while she was changing his diaper. He’s doing all the things that he’s supposed to do,” Jimmy joked. “This is the best.”
Jimmy went ahead to thank various doctors, nurses, family, friends, and co-workers. He even expressed gratitude toward his toxic acquaintance Matt Damon, which rapidly got snickers from the crowd.
He additionally offered thanks for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for taking such extraordinary care of their child.
“This is some place Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. I hope you never have to go there, but if you do, you’ll see so many kids from so many financial backgrounds being cared for so well and with so much compassion,” he explained. “I’ve been supporting Children’s Hospital for years. I had no idea we’d ever wind up there.”
Maybe the best hero in the greater part of this is Jimmy’s better half who has remained solid through all the high points and low points.
“Most of all I want to thank my wife, Molly. First of all, for allowing me to have sex with her in the first place,” Jimmy joked. “That was huge right there. So few have done that. But also for being so strong and level headed and positive and loving during the worst nightmare, a new mother could experience. I couldn’t ask for a better partner. I’m so happy we had this baby together. I’m getting a vasectomy after this.”
He added, “Please say a prayer for or send positive thoughts to the families with children who are still in the hospital now because they need it. And thanks.”
