His son's operation was originally scheduled for October but due to his family issue, the operation didn't go as planned. The pair welcomed their son Billy in April.
But he had to undergo a surgery at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The reason for the operation was his condition, the tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.
In an emotional monologue, Jimmy said,
“Basically, the pulmonary valve was completely blocked and he has a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart,”
Well, the pair is now elated as their son had a successful operation. They share a 3-year-old daughter named Jane. He is the father of two children, Kevin and Katie from his past relationship.
