Molly McNearney said her husband told her that he wanted to talk about their son, who was born with two heart defects and underwent nearly immediate open-heart surgery, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live".

After reporting that Kimmel's son Billy's heart operation was a success, NPH said: "I would do anything for Jimmy". "He is eating, he is smiling".

"We're sending lots of love to all the Kimmels", Harris added. Billy is a fearless little boy.

The network also announced that Jimmy will be taking time off to spend with his family and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' will be hosted by a series of celebrity guests this week. "I sobbed through the entire thing. I figured he'd tell the story and then he'd probably cry because, well, he once cried on the show over a lion dying", she recounted to THR. He didn't have to do that. "Our family has excellent health care; he had nothing to gain from that".

Here's the "How I Met Your Mother" alum's best-received quip of the evening: "I'm what's known in Hollywood as a triple-threat: I sing, I dance, and I don't sexually harass people".

Katrina Kaif And Mahira Khan Pay Tribute To Legendary Actor Shashi Kapoor!
Shashi Kapoor , a leading Bollywood actor and producer from the 1970s and '80s, has died after a long illness. There were three rounds of fire to honour the late actor, who spent more than four decades in Hindi cinema.

"Jimmy and I can't go anywhere without someone coming up and thanking him for that monologue", McNearney said.

Despite having to endure heart surgery three days after his birth, McNeary found goal and hope in Billy's medical battles. "I thought he meant at The Oscars".

"If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make".

Jimmy tweeted, "Very thankful to Chris @PrattPrattPratt for filling in for me tonight with guests @MargotRobbie & @ChrisStapleton". Last month, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Shaquille O'Neal and Dave Grohl subbed for Kimmel.
