Congratulations are in order yet again! Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy have welcomed their second child, a bouncing baby girl, to the world. Frances Cole Fallon was born at 8:45am on Wednesday, via surrogate. The baby was born weighing 5lbs, 11oz and measuring 18.5in long.
The 40-year-old comedian and Tonight Show host recently described fatherhood as the most exciting, amazing thing:
“This has been the craziest year of my life. But being a father is the most exciting, amazing thing that ever happened to me. And everything’s going well on the show. My life has never been this cool.”
The TV show host and his 47-year-old wife have been going through some tough times, due to fertility problems. Fallon also recently opened up that struggle: “For anyone out there struggling to have a baby, me and my wife went through a bunch of stuff. Hang in there if you can. I know it’s hard. It’s awful, actually. But when you finally get to the end of the road it’s a miracle, and you have this little bundle. You just fall in love.”
The couple had their first child, daughter Winnie Rose 16 months ago.
Meanwhile, the star, who took over hosting The Tonight Show in February, was named Entertainment Weekly’s 2014 Entertainer Of The Year on Wednesday, but he says it’s all thanks to the hard work of his team: ‘We honestly have the best human beings for this job possible.”
