WATCH: Snoop Dogg Gives Jimmy Kimmel Donation for Children's Hospital

Snoop was moved by Kimmel's son's health issues

May 23, 2017

As if we couldn't love Uncle Snoop anymore! The very private story that late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel shared about his newborn son back in April apparently moved Snoop Dogg to the point where the rapper did something highly unexpected during a recent appearance. Snoop was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his recently released 15th studio album, Neva Left, when he surprised Kimmel with a check made out to the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

In April, Kimmel shared the story of his son being born with a congenital heart disease. The purpose of Kimmel sharing the private story was to bring awareness for Americans who can't afford health care. Snoop, a father himself, told Kimmel that he wanted to make sure someone was looking out for the next kid that might need help.
