Jimmy Kimmel will be taking a break this week to spend time with his family following his son Billy’s successful second heart surgery.
According to ABC News, the late night host will have the help of various guest hosts filling in for him this week so he can be with his family during the 7-month-old’s recovery process.
Chris Pratt took over the show on Monday, and for the rest of the week, Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris, and Melissa McCarthy will take turns making themselves comfy in Kimmel’s seat.
Kimmel and his son’s story have been one of the unexpected voices speaking out against the proposed health care bill and the national conversation about health care. In May, Kimmel made the announcement that his newborn son was born with heart disease and since then, he has used his show to advocate against the various Republican health care bills and to raise awareness by analyzing and discussing the bill on his show.
This will be the second time this year Kimmel has stepped away from his hosting gigs due to family obligations. Billy’s scheduled surgery was initially intended to take place in October, but was postponed due to a cold. Nonetheless, Shaquille O’Neal, Dave Grohl, Channing Tatum, and Jennifer Lawrence stepped up to the plate for him that week and we got some hilarious clips out of that—so this week should be just as fun.
We are all wishing Billy a very speedy recovery.
