Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy have welcomed their second child via surrogate.
The couple’s daughter, Frances Cole Fallon, was born at 8:45 a.m. today!
Baby Frances weighed in at 5lbs, 11 oz and measured 18.5 inches in length.
The 40-year-old late night show’s rep confirmed the happy news for Fallon and his 47-year-old wife Nancy.
The new addition joins 16-month-old Winnie Rose, who was also born via surrogate.
The rep adds the couple “opted to keep their baby joy to themselves until their new daughter…made her official debut”.
The comedian recently described fatherhood as the “most exciting, amazing thing.”
Fallon said back in June, “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.”
Jimmy Fallon previously opened up about their fertility struggles.
He said last year, “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”.
Jimmy, who took over hosting The Tonight Show in February, was named Entertainment Weekly’s 2014 Entertainer Of The Year on Wednesday.
He credited his great team for the success of the show, stating, “We honestly have the best human beings for this job possible. They’re bleeding for the show. Everybody’s at their A game.”
Congrats to Jimmy Fallon and Nancy on the birth of their second child!
