Jimmy Kimmel celebrates his son William “Billy” John’s 5th birthday.

On Thursday, On Instagram, Jimmy Kimmel paid tribute to his son with a sweet post in which he expressed his appreciation for the nurses and doctors that helped to save Billy, who was born with a congenital heart condition.

“Happy 5th birthday to our little nut. We are eternally grateful to the brilliant doctors and nurses at @ChildrensLA & @CedarsSinai for saving Billy’s life and to those of you whose donations, prayers and positive thoughts meant everything,” Kimmel writes. “Please support families who need medical care. Link in bio. 💙”

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney overcame a challenging first year with their baby son. He had to undergo three heart surgeries after being born with the congenital heart condition, tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.

Jimmy Kimmel also shares daughter Jane, 7, with McNearney and has two older children, Katie and Kevin, from a previous relationship — he first opened up about his son’s situation in May 2017 with a tearful monologue on his show.

“There were secrets we kept from each other that we revealed only after the second surgery. The biggest one was that, I think subconsciously, we didn’t want to get too close to the baby because we didn’t know what was going to happen,” Jimmy Kimmel said in an interview for O, The Oprah Magazine’s April 2018 issue.
