Congrats to new dad Jimmy Fallon and his wife for the birth of their new baby girl! A couple days after the birth of Winnie Rose, the TV talk show host revealed that she was born via surrogate. He first revealed the news during his talk show stating,
“I’m the father of a beautiful baby girl. She’s so cute. She’s 5 lbs., 9 oz. Me and my wife are so happy.”
In an interview with Today Magazine, Jimmy admitted:
“It wasn’t really a secret, but my wife and I had been trying for awhile to have a baby. We’ve tried a bunch of different things, so we had a surrogate.”
He also told the magazine that because his wife was having a hard time previously getting pregnant, they wanted to keep the news a secret from everybody. They did not even tell friends or family!
“This time we just 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. When it happened we were in shock. We’re like, ‘Alright, who do we tell? Who’s going to be mad at us if this gets out?’” he recalls. “We had to call everybody and it’s so emotional when you call everybody.”
