From our friends at Your Tango!
After hosting Late Night since 2009, Jimmy Fallon inherits The Tonight Show! The native New Yorker, 39, who’ll host the NBC show nightly from Manhattan, is understandably excited about his new gig (first guests: Will Smith and U2!), but he’s even more ecstatic about his other new role as father to seven-month-old daughter Winnie Rose.
Fallon and his wife, producer Nancy Juvonen — she’s Drew Barrymore’s partner in Flower Films — tried in vain to have a baby before ultimately deciding to use a gestational surrogate. Here, he candidly confides to YourTango about their emotional journey, from frustration to elation:
YourTango: Parenthood didn’t come easily for you.
