Nancy Juvonen Fallon and Jimmy Fallon have come out to reveal their secret that they used a surrogate to conceive their newborn baby.
The 38 year old late night TV host and his 46 year old wife have had difficulty trying to conceive, Jimmy Fallon revealed on the Today show this week, and that was their reason to use surrogacy.
However, he also explained how the couple decided to keep the surrogacy a complete secret, even from close friends and family. That meant that when daughter, Winnie Rose Fallon, was finally born then they had to be careful with how they announced her sudden arrival and not hurt any close friends' feelings.
However, they also had a little fun with how they told the world the news. A rep for Fallon said in July that they were overjoyed at being first-time parents and the "arrival of their beautiful daughter," however, the rep did not note that Nancy Juvonen Fallon did not carry Winnie.
The news was a big shock to many in Hollywood as well as Fallon fans; they were dumbfounded when Fallon announced on July 23 that he was now a dad. It came out of the blue, and people were caught completely unexpected.
Fallon said on the Today show: "We said, 'We're not going to tell anybody.' It'd be just more fun if it's just private between me and my wife. And then we get to introduce her to everybody."
Nancy Juvonen Fallon of course is a big name in Hollywood as well, albeit more behind the scenes.
After meeting Drew Barrymore through her brother, a writer/producer working on the 1995 movie Mad Love, Nancy moved into the movie world, and she now runs Flower Films with Barrymore.
She has worked on a number of projects with the actress and is leading a very successful career in the film industry.
Nancy was an executive producer on the 1999 television Christmas movie Olive The Other Reindeer and the Charlie's Angels movies.
In 2005 she was also notably a producer on the movie Fever Pitch, in which Jimmy Fallon co-starred with Drew Barrymore.
