Frances is daughter number two for the famous couple. Their first daughter, Winnie Rose was born in July of 2013. Both babies were birthed by a surrogate mother. After five years, struggling to get pregnant and give birth to a child, they decided to take an alternative route to becoming parents. When speaking about the issue with Mens Health Magazine, Jimmy Fallon talked about his struggle, stating that the struggles he and his wife had endured has really make them slow down and appreciate the small things in life.
Both of the couple’s pregnancies were kept a secret from the public because the couple wanted to share in their own happiness without all the hype from the media. Jimmy and Nancy Fallon wanted to welcome their baby into the world and then surprise everyone with their new bundles of joy. After years of ongoing struggles to have children, they wanted to keep the news of their upcoming births from anyone who could spoil the special time in their lives.
Jimmy Fallon met Nancy on the set of “Fever Pitch” in 2007. Jimmy was starring alongside Drew Barrymore who had business ties and partnerships with, his now wife, Nancy Juvonen. In August, just a few short months after the couple met, Fallon proposed to Nancy at the Juvonen family estate on Lake Winnipesaukee, in New Hampshire. In December of 2007, the couple would exchange vowels on Necker Island in the Caribbean. The ceremony was a small and intimate event, mostly including close friends and family.
When asked by interviewers for Mens Health Magazine how he knew that his wife was the one, Jimmy stated that “sometimes you just know. I know that is terrible advice and the only ones that will understand are the ones that just knew.” Another piece of advice that he gave the magazine was to find the person that you have the most fun with, the person that you want to have that much fun with forever, and then you know you have found the one.
