Easter is that special time of the year when we celebrate life, but Jimmy Kimmel, our favorite face on television, had another reason to be extra joyful on that day. His youngest son Billy turned two.

 

Billy was born with a congenital heart condition and had to undergo surgery only three days after he was welcomed into the world. Those were tough times for the family, but the brave little baby managed to overcome the condition. He had his second surgery when he turned 7 months, and he’s now doing fine and brings happiness in his family.

Back in 2017, Jimmy opened up about his son’s condition in a monologue in which he made a plea for the government to continue financially covering the health care of children with preexisting conditions, especially for the families who weren’t able to cover the expenses on their own.

He also used the opportunity to publicly thank the doctors who treated Billy, as well as the rest of the medical staff who were devoted to his healing.
