King has been candid in the past about her dedication to her children, including embracing James' decisions to wear whatever clothes he likes and Leo's heart condition.
The Sin City actress told PEOPLE Now last year that she first found out her younger child had something called transposition of the great arteries, "which is a very serious heart defect," while she was 33 weeks pregnant.
King also revealed that Jimmy Kimmel, who has been through a similar journey with his now-3-year-old son William "Billy" John, inspired her to be more open about Leo's story after the comedian's tearful address about his son’s congenital heart condition, tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.
"You know, Jimmy's part of the reason why I felt like it was important to be open about it," she said. "When you have a voice, you need to use your voice in a responsible way.
