Jimmy Kimmel Gives Emotional Health Update on His Baby Boy

Jimmy Kimmel might be one of the funniest men on television but at home, he’s just another committed, hands-on dad who would do just about anything for his children, include make an emotional appeal to Congress to save the Affordable Health Care Act.

I mean, wouldn’t you?

It’s been several months since he told the world about the birth of his son Billy and his life-threatening heart defect that required surgery within three days. And how the late-night funny man reveals how his baby’s crisis inspired him to stand up for Children’s health care and rights, which former presidents reached out to support him and why it’s clear politicians aren’t listening on health care. I’m sure that this is something that we can all agree on, too.
