Jenny McCarthy Open Up About Autistic Son on Ellen

Ellen DeGeneres had to hold back tears on Wednesday when Jenny McCarthy opened up about her autistic son Evan.

Jenny recalled a time when Evan compared himself to 'Finding Nemo' character Dory (which was voiced by Ellen) during a car trip.

McCarthy said, "Evan has come such a long way. That kid has come such a long way to get to where he is. He said, 'Mom, you know I used to be a lot like Dory.' I literally pulled over and looked and turned around and I started crying, because of what he meant.

"He said, 'Dory had a really hard time remembering her words and I couldn't remember them...' We sat on the side of the road for about 15 minutes while I cried. He said, 'I'm not like Dory anymore, I can remember.'"

Ellen was so touched by the story she had to hold back tears. "I'm gonna cry right now... That's incredible."
