The ABC star took a moment to point out how seeing this firsthand was a wakeup call about the healthcare debate in our country. He said simply at one point:

"If your baby is going to die, and it doesn't have to, it should not matter how much money you make."

So true.

And we weren't the only ones watching who thought so. President Barack Obama tweeted:

Jimmy Kimmel Fights Back Tears As He Reveals Newborn Son Billy Underwent Open Heart Surgery

No jokes here.

On Monday evening, Jimmy Kimmel emotionally revealed that his son with wife Molly McNearney had to have open heart surgery at only three days old. Oh no!

According to the late night host, Miz McNearney gave birth to a baby boy, named William "Billy" Kimmel, on April 21. However, the twosome's joy was short lived as hours after Billy's birth, an attentive nurse noticed the newborn had a heart murmur and was turning purple. Apparently, the youngest Kimmel has congenital heart disease which means there's a "hole in the wall of the left and right side of his heart."

What a scary situation for any parent. Thankfully, Billy successfully underwent open heart surgery at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and was able to go home six days after being born. Nonetheless, the youngster will have to undergo another operation in three to six months. Although Jimmy is clearly shaken up by his son's health scare, he's still able to make jokes as he quipped:

"Poor kid, not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face."

Awwwww. Be sure to watch Kimmel's tearful address for yourself (below).

Ryan Seacrest Tapped As Kelly Ripa's New Live! Cohost!

kelly ripa picks ryan seacrest live cohost

UPDATE 5/1/2017 9:10 A.M. EST: It's official! Ryan was announced as Kelly's new cohost during the show this morning!



We should've seen this casting coming.

As you may've heard, Kelly Ripa is slated to introduce her new Live! cohost today (May 1). And while the pint-sized TV personality has yet to confirm the news herself, CNN reports that her new partner in crime is none other than Ryan Seacrest. Yup, the hosting King is heading to New York in order to fill the big shoes Michael Strahan left behind.

In case you forgot, last year Strahan announced he would be leaving the morning show so that he could take on a full time position at Good Morning America. Nonetheless, Miz Ripa was in no rush to find Michael's replacement as she had a slew of A-list guest cohosts for about a year — including Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Dwyane Wade, and others. We mean, Seacrest was even tapped several times to sit by Ripa's side while she searched for the right copilot. Well, it looks like the hunt is finally over. Phew!

Thankfully, Ryan has plenty of hosting experience on his resume as he hosted American Idol for years, has his own radio show (On Air with Ryan Seacrest), AND is the face of New Year's Rockin' Eve. In fact, we're kind of surprised that he has time to take on Live!. LOLz!

Regardless, we couldn't be happier for Ryan and Kelly on their new professional partnership. Squeeee!

Emma Watson Can't Tell Jimmy Fallon & Jimmy Kimmel Apart!

| Filed under: TV NewsOops!Jimmy KimmelEmma WatsonJimmy FallonLate Night TV

Emma Watson had a perfectly lovely interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show — this time!

But the last time she was on, back in 2012 to promote The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, it was awkward city!

On Thursday night's show, the Beauty and the Beast star recounted the story of her first interview with Fallon:

"I just dove straight in there with, ‘I love that Halloween candy thing that you do.' And there was just silence."

OMG! No wonder she hasn't been back in five years!

Of course we never saw that cringeworthy moment on the air. When Fallon explained to her she was talking about Jimmy Kimmel, Emma was so mortified they had to cut and re-tape the interview from the beginning! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out the whole story, and a much more graceful Emma (above)!

Starbucks doesn't need to look any further for their "latest abomination"!
