Ellen Surprises Jimmy Kimmel With Hospital Room Named After Son Billy

Ellen DeGeneres is famous for making celebrity guests howl with laughter on her talk show, but on Tuesday's episode, the funny woman actually made Jimmy Kimmel cry tears of gratitude. 

DeGeneres surprised Kimmel by revealing that a room at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles has been named in honor of his son Billy, who underwent surgery as an infant to correct a congenital heart defect. 

"That will forever be the Billy Kimmel room," she said, before adding that several of Billy's nurses were in the audience at the show. 

Kimmel reacted by telling them jokingly, "You should be at work!"
