What has Jimmy said about his son Billy's heart defect?

Billy was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia just after he was born.

He's undergone two surgeries, one when he was 3 days old, another at 7 months.

The condition tetralogy of fallot is characterised by a combination of multiple defects that affect the heart's structure and function.

Speaking on his show, Jimmy recounted that a nurse first noticed something was wrong with Billy, when he was only a few hours old, noting that the infant "was a bit purple."

The baby was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit where the medical staff started to see signs that something was wrong with his heart.

"The room started to fill up. More doctors, nurses, and equipment started coming in and they determined that he wasn’t getting enough oxygen into his blood," Jimmy said. "It’s a terrifying thing."
