"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon is celebrating his first year as a dad by posing with his 10-month-old daughter Winnie on the cover of People's June 23 issue. The photo shoot features dad and daughter in matching gray suits, white shirts and pink ties. Winnie, however, also modeled a floral headband.
Since he became a first-time father in July 2013 and replaced late-night icon Jay Leno in February 2014, Jimmy's been pretty darn busy. "When you have a baby, sleep is not an option. You can't sleep," the former "Saturday Night Live" star says with a laugh. "Even on vacation, you wake up at 6:30 a.m."
Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen had brushes with pregnancy before Winnie was born via surrogate. "This has been the craziest year of my life," Jimmy says. "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."
Winnie will be hitting the road with mom and dad when "Tonight" heads to the Universal Orlando Resort next week for a series of episodes set to film in Florida.
"I didn't think it was going to be this fun," Fallon says. "But everything just gets heightened when you have a baby. The volume gets turned up on life. I never knew I could be this happy, and that's the truth."
