Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen welcomed their first child together this week, though the talk show host waited until Wednesday night to reveal the first details about her to his audience. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon, and she clocked in at 5 pounds, 9 ounces.
He opened saying “I’m your host da da,” to wild audience applause, and then went into a candid monologue thanking fans for their well wishes on social media.
He also cracked a coupe of Facebook jokes and made reference to his daughter’s birth being overshadowed by the arrival of the Royal Baby, joking that he was planning on setting up a playdate for the two new bundles of joy.
Winnie Rose is the first child for both Fallon and Juvonen.
Fallon seemed a bit overwhelmed about his baby daughter’s birth, joking that it had been a very emotional day for him and confessing that he doesn’t know much about what his wife had to go through to bring their baby girl into the world.
But he’s plenty happy, a fact that’s obvious to anyone who follows him on Twitter:
My wife and I thank you for all of the nice baby well wishes. Her first day was the best day of our lives. So happy. Thanks again.
