Jimmy Fallon With Baby Daughter Winnie on People Cover: “I Never Knew I Could Be This Happy”

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Jimmy Fallon covers the latest issue of People, joined by his baby daughter Winnie Rose — and the two even wear matching suits!

The late night host opens up about how fatherhood has changed his life.

Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen welcomed Winnie Rose via surrogate last summer, months before Fallon took over “The Tonight Show,” and Fallon calls the period “the craziest year of my life.”

“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,” he tells the magazine.

The host admits that having a baby comes with challenges.

He says, “When you have a baby, sleep is not an option. You can’t sleep. Even on vacation, you wake up at 6:30 a.m.”

But Fallon is overjoyed about being a father, revealing, “I didn’t think it was going to be this fun.”

“Everything just gets heightened when you have a baby,” he says. “The volume gets turned up on life. I never knew I could be this happy, and that’s the truth.”
