— Jimmy Kimmel and his adorable family are more than ready for the new year.
The TV host took to Instagram to wish the world a happy new year and share a cute family photo featuring himself, his wife Molly McNearney and their two little kids — William “Billy” John, 8 months, and 3-year-old Jane — chilling out in bed together.
“Happy new year from our family to you and yours,” Kimmel captioned the image.
Baby Billy appears to be doing well after his heart surgery in December.
Kimmel introduced his infant son to his studio audience and viewers at home on a recent episode of his show “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Kimmel was choked up talking about his son’s health and treatment.
“Hi, I’m Jimmy and this is Billy. I was out this week because this guy had heart surgery,” he introduced to the audience before thanking his guest hosts for filling in for him while he was out. When he got emotional thinking about his son’s health, Kimmel tried to laugh it off. “Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn’t.”
“We also want to thank the very bright and talented doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital who treated Billy, and not just Billy, and many kids with so much care and compassion … children from every income level whose health is especially threatened right now because of something you probably never heard of,” he said, holding back tears. “It’s called CHIP [Children’s Health Insurance Program].”
CHIP helps families who make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but can’t get coverage through their jobs, according to Kimmel. He told the audience that CHIP may be cut off for some families because funding has not been approved by Congress.
“Billy’s doing great by the way. He has one more surgery,” Kimmel said. “They say he’s probably on track to win at least a bronze medal in the Olympics in 2036.”
Billy was born with a heart defect in April and underwent his first surgery at three days old. Kimmel opened up about his son’s health just days after bringing him home for the first time.
“He will have another surgery in three to six months,” Kimmel said at the time. “And, a third, hopefully non-invasive surgery in the future.”

— Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams is getting married.
The 37-year-old singer is engaged to pastor Chad Johnson, 40, after a year of dating.
Johnson, founder of Elevate International, led the retreat in Arizona and said he and Williams were in “very similar places on a personal level.”
“I was in a horrible, dark place,” Williams said. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”
“Michelle was coming off the heels of a really bad relationship, and I was just in a place of despair as well,” Johnson, a professional sports chaplain who has worked with the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers, said.
The two kept in touch after the retreat and progressed from texts to FaceTime calls.
“We spent almost three months without even seeing each other, just building a strong foundation on the phone and through FaceTime,” Johnson told People. “It was really built on friendship and communication.”
The two went on their first date at a wedding in the Dominican Republic, had their first kiss and decided to date officially.
“I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,’” Johnson said.
A year to the day Johnson first reached out to Williams -- on March 21 -- the two got engaged. Johnson proposed with a 5-carat ring and a video of himself with members of Williams’ family.
“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” Williams said. “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said, ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!’”

Williams said she was drawn to her now-fiance because she could be herself with him, adding that Johnson calls her by her first name.
“My first name is Tenitra; my middle name is Michelle. I felt like I could be Tenitra; just ratchet, I didn’t have to have on any makeup, if I had to have on my hair bonnet — he just made me feel very safe in being myself,” she said.
The two plan on having a wedding this summer.
“It’s gonna be … think James Bond-meets-’Midsummer Night’s Dream’ — with a little hood in it,” Williams said. “It’s gonna be very traditional. We’re doing black-tie. We want it to be small and intimate and very private.”
