Jimmy Kimmel's 7-Month-Old Son Billy Had a 'Successful' Second Heart Surgery

  Jimmy Kimmel's 7-Month-Old Son Billy Had a 'Successful' Second Heart Surgery Jimmy Kimmel ‘s baby boy William John “Billy” is a fighter! ABC announced on Monday in a statement that the 7-month-old “had a scheduled and successful heart surgery this morning.” The network also revealed that Kimmel is “with his family” and will have celebrity guests filling in as host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the week. In Kimmel’s place, Chris Pratt will kick things off Monday, and he’ll be followed by Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy. Guests include Margot Robbie, Chris Stapleton, Mary J. Blige, Amanda de Cadenet, Miguel, Vanessa Kirby, Jules Sylvester, Octavia Spencer, Dave Franco and Hanson. Originally, Billy’s surgery was scheduled in late October but had to be postponed “due to the common cold,” the network said in a statement at the time. In April, Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed William John “Billy” Kimmel and announced that at 3-days-old, Billy underwent the surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles because of his condition, the tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.

Kimmel and McNearney also share a 3-year-old daughter, Jane. The host has two older children – Kevin and Katie – from a previous relationship.

The late David Cassidy wasn’t always estranged from his only daughter, Katie, whom he left out of his will.

In 2009, PEOPLE caught up with the Partridge Family star and the 31-year-old actress to discuss their unique father-daughter relationship.

Though Katie was raised by her mother — former model Sherry Williams — and her stepfather, Richard Benedon, Cassidy still played an important role in her life.

“Because I didn’t raise her, I didn’t have to parent her,” he said. “I’m always here and totally nonjudgmental.”

“To be able to go to someone I’m genetically linked to, tell them anything and know that they’re not going to judge me — it’s unbelievable,” Katie added. “It’s nice when your dad can be your friend.”

But Cassidy, who suffered from dementia toward the end of his life, wasn’t just a friend — he was also a strong mentor with great advice.

“Do not work for money,” he told his daughter. “Do not work for fame. Work for the work. And if you get a great role and they offer you nothing, take it.”

And Katie took that advice. “That’s all he’s said, and I’ve taken the advice,” she told PEOPLE.

Despite their close relationship seven years years ago, Cassidy confessed that he was no longer in contact with his eldest child.

“I wasn’t her father. I was her biological father but I didn’t raise her,” he exclusively told PEOPLE. “She has a completely different life.”

Although the father-daughter duo had a falling out, he was still impressed with the woman she had become.

“I’m proud of her,” Cassidy added. “She’s very talented. It’s hard for me to even accept how old she is now, like 30.”

And Katie was among the family members who rushed to Cassidy’s side when he was hospitalized last month.

On Nov. 21, the ’70s teen heartthrob died of organ failure at the age of 67. A few days after his death, the Arrow actress shared a heartbreaking tweet honoring the late star.
