Jimmy Fallon Proud Papa Via Surrogacy
Submitted to Celebrity Spotlight
Late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy Juvonen have had two daughters via surrogacy.
Their first daughter, Winnie, was born in 2013, and they welcomed a second baby girl, Frances, in 2014. Over the years, Fallon and his wife have been very open about their fertility issues. “It’s hard if you can’t have children. We struggled for a good five years trying to have a kid.” After the birth of their first daughter, Fallon went on to explain, “We tried a bunch of things. Anyone who’s tried will know, it’s just awful,” he said. “So, we had a surrogate.” Fallon’s road to fatherhood wasn’t an easy one, and he insists, “If there’s anyone out there who is trying and they’re just losing hope, just hang in there.” He suggests to, “Try every avenue; try anything you can do, because you’ll get there. You’ll end up with a family, and it’s so worth it. It is the most ‘worth it’ thing.”
In this episode of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the couple openly discuss their road to parenting (skip to the 9:20 mark to hear the Fallons talk about parenting).
Has hearing about a celebrity's experience with infertility influenced your decision to be a surrogate?
