    During the monologue, Jimmy made this passionate plea: "If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it should not matter how much money you make...I saw a lot of families there. And no parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life. It just shouldn’t happen. Not here."

    Well, Jimmy's happy to report that Billy, now 6 months old, is healthy and happy.

    Jimmy wrote in an Instagram 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."
