Jim Gaffigan was recently a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about his new comedy album, Noble Ape, but opened up about his wife Jeannie’s brain tumor.
Jeannie, who is also Jim’s writing partner, recently underwent a nine-hour surgery to have her brain tumor removed. However, in the interview, Jim revealed that he thought he might lose his wife at one point early-on.
Jim, who like Jeannie, is a devout Catholic, discussed the surgery and his wife’s recovery, saying, “We are the beneficiary of miracles.”
