Happy Birthday, Billy! Jimmy Kimmel Celebrates His "Tough" Little Boy's First Birthday
Billy Kimmel is one! Jimmy Kimmel posted on Instagram on April 21 to celebrate his adorable son's first year and thanked the individuals who helped to save his life. Jimmy and his wife, Molly McNearney, have been open about Billy's congenital heart defect and the emotional journey that they've gone through as his parents.
Billy underwent two separate open-heart surgeries before turning one and will likely undergo a third when he's six or seven years old. Throughout this experience, both of Billy's parents have been vocal about healthcare budgetary cuts and how they can impact children across the nation. Jimmy uses his post's caption to encourage people to celebrate Billy by registering to vote. "We cannot stay quiet," Jimmy wrote. And really, how can you say no to that cute, smiley face?
