The Morning Brew: Jimmy Kimmel tearfully recounts newborn son's heart surgery

It's Wednesday. Here is a news recap:

Jimmy Kimmel tearfully recounts newborn son's heart surgery

The late-night host recounted his son's life-threatening ordeal in a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" monologue.

A tearful Jimmy Kimmel turned his show's monologue into an emotional recounting of his newborn son's open-heart surgery — and a plea that all American families get the lifesaving medical care they need.

"It was a scary story and before I go into it, I want you to know it has a happy ending," Kimmel assured ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" studio audience Monday as he detailed how his son's routine birth April 21 suddenly turned frightening.

Several hours after his wife, Molly, gave birth to William John, a "very attentive" nurse at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center alerted the couple and doctors to the baby's purple-ish color and an apparent heart murmur, the host said.
