Jimmy Kimmel and Anna Faris know what it feels like to have a young child with health issues.

The pair candidly discussed their experiences when the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host, along with his screenwriter wife, Molly McNearney, joined Faris on her Unqualified podcast, opening up about their son, Billy, who at less than a year old, has already undergone two life-saving heart surgeries.

"Billy’s great," McNearney shared, noting, "He had his second surgery and he’ll have one more when he’s older. It was tough."

McNearney also remarked on the resiliency of children, sharing, "He had open-heart surgery on a Monday and we were home on Friday."

Faris then discussed their experience of sending Jack, her 5-year-old son with estranged husband Chris Pratt, into surgery.

"Jack had a few surgeries," she said. "Hernia surgeries, he’s had a few eye surgeries and he had a little heart issue as well."

At the top of the show, Faris opened up about Jack's premature birth, while promoting GAPPS, an organization for research and awareness into preterm and stillborn births.

"My unbelievably beautiful and brilliant son, Jack, decided to come into the world two months early," she shared. "It was the most difficult part of my life."

To raise money for the organization, Faris offered fans a chance to win a trip to meet her in Los Angeles, and even appear on the podcast if they want.
