‘Late Night’ funny guy Jimmy Fallon didn’t keep the announcement of his baby’s birth or his baby’s name a secret for long, but he did keep one thing under wraps: she was born via surrogate! Jimmy decided to reveal this intimate detail on August 9.
Just a few days after Jimmy Fallon announced that he and wife Nancy Juvonen welcomed a baby girl into the world, he posted a picture of his little darling. But, the Late Night host waited a couple of weeks to reveal a personal story about the arrival his baby girl.
Jimmy Fallon’s Baby Surrogacy — How Daughter Winnie Rose Was Born
Winnie Rose Fallon arrived on July 23, just one day after the royal baby, which made us forget that no one really knew he and his wife were expecting. That’s probably because Nancy wasn’t rocking a bump!
“We had a surrogate,” Jimmy revealed to Savannah Guthrie on the August 9 episode of Today. “My wife and I had been trying for a while to have a baby and so we’ve tried a bunch of things.”
He said the couple’s exciting news “wasn’t really a secret,” but rather something he and Nancy got to share when they finally announced their baby’s arrival.
This time we decided we’re not gonna tell anybody, it would be just more fun if it was just private between me and my wife, and then we get to introduce her to everybody.
We’re just happy we got to see a picture of little Winnie right away — she’s so precious!
Jimmy Fallon: Finding Out I Was Going To Be A Dad Was ‘So Emotional’
Since Jimmy, 38, and Nancy, 46, had been trying for a baby for some time, they couldn’t believe the news of a successful surrogate. At the same time, they didn’t know who to and not to tell!
When it happened, we were shocked. We were like, alright, who do we tell, who’s gonna be mad at us if this gets out? We had to call everybody — it was so emotional!
How adorable! No matter how the couple was finally able to welcome their baby girl, we are so happy for them — and clearly Jimmy is extremely happy too!
