William “Billy” John Kimmel was born on April 21. He was like any other newborn until a nurse noticed he had a heart murmur and was skin tone was purple, USA Today reported.

He was diagnosed with “tetralogy of fallot and pulmonary atresia.” In layman’s terms, the baby’s pulmonary valve had a blockage and he had a hole in a wall of the heart, NBC News reported.

Billy was taken to surgery on April 24 and a few hours later, he came out of the operating room. He is recovering, but will have to have a second procedure in three months and a third when he reaches his teens. Kimmel and his wife took their baby son home six days after open-heart surgery, the talk show host explained in his monologue. 

The emotions turned into an impassioned plea on Obamacare, NBC News reported.

“You know, before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you wouldn’t be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition,” Kimmel said.

“If your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to,it shouldn’t matter how much money you make. I think that’s something that whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right?”

At some point, according to the arrest report, she got out of the car saying she was getting scared because Swann was becoming more angry at her. 

Swann then got out too and chased her, yelling at her to get back inside. When she did not, he grabbed her, put her in a headlock and dragged her back inside the car while she was screaming for help, according to the arrest report. 

Swann denied the allegations.
