Need proof that celebrity exes can still be incredibly supportive of each other? Just look at Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel. The pair dated from 2002 to 2009, and while that’s a super long time in Hollywood, they hold no ill feelings towards each other. In fact, Silverman has appeared on Kimmel’s show a few times since they decided to call it quits.
So when Silverman opened up about Kimmel’s recent emotional monologue — in which he talked about the complicated birth of his brand-new son — it makes sense that she was full of nothing but love and admiration.
(And in case you missed it, William “Billy” Kimmel was born last week with a congenital heart condition and needed to have surgery a few days after birth. Thankfully, everything seems to be okay now).
Entertainment Tonight reached out to Silverman at Hulu’s upfront presentation in New York, and her words are absolutely lovely.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
This isn’t the first time that Silverman has said sweet things about Kimmel. Late last year, she mentioned she’ll always have feelings of love towards the host.
We want to give our best to Kimmel, his wife Molly McNearney, and their brand new baby.
