Jimmy Kimmel is now away from his late night TV show while his son recovers from heart surgery - so Neil Patrick Harris is filling in for him!

"I'm thrilled his son Billy's heart operation was a success. He's recovering very well", the actor announced during his monologue on Wednesday night.

"Jimmy asked me to host for him - I immediately said yes".

Harris noted that Billy is also eating and smiling. We are sending lots of love to the Kimmels.

Billy - who was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with pulmonary atresia - was originally scheduled to have his second heart operation in late October, but it had to be postponed because the family were suffering from colds. "And I'm so glad he's doing well".

Neil Patrick Harris guest hosts "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on December 07, 2017.

"So there I am, in my living room breastfeeding Billy with my mom beside me, and we're watching". "I sobbed through the entire thing. I figured he'd tell the story and then he'd probably cry because, well, he once cried on the show over a lion dying". He didn't have to do that.

Six months ago, Jimmy Kimmel made the health care battle personal. He did it for the other people whom we met in that hospital. "He came home that night and I just hugged him and I wouldn't let go".

Despite having to endure heart surgery three days after his birth, McNeary found goal and hope in Billy's medical battles. "I thought he meant the Oscars", he joked.

Jimmy tweeted, "Very thankful to Chris @PrattPrattPratt for filling in for me tonight with guests @MargotRobbie & @ChrisStapleton".
