In honor of baby Billy’s six-month birthday, proud dad Jimmy Kimmel shared an adorable photo of his tooth-less son to remind us true happiness can be found via Sophie the Giraffe.
Over the weekend, Kimmel gave an update on Billy’s health on Instagram and Twitter and reassured fans that his now-6-month-old baby is as joyful as ever. He captioned the post, “Young Billy is six months old today. He is healthy and happy and we are all very grateful for your prayers, good wishes, thoughts and support of @ChildrensLA and children’s hospitals in your area.”
In the pic, Billy flashes his gummy smile from the comfort of his stroller and wears a colorful plaid shirt with blue pants. His ensemble is accessorized with an embroidered “Billy” spit-up towel and, of course, superstar of the teething world, Sophie the Giraffe.
Billy was diagnosed with a rare heart condition, tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with pulmonary atresia, shortly after his birth on April 21, 2017. Billy underwent an emergency procedure to fix part of the defect but will need an additional operation in his early teenage years to fully repair his heart condition.
A mere 6 months old and the kid already has the world wrapped around his chubby little finger.
