Late night host and former Top Chef guest Jimmy Fallon is now a proud father! Following the announcement of his daughter’s birth on Twitter and then again on television, celebrities are busy congratulating the new dad.
Not so long ago, Jimmy Fallon was inspiring laughter with his “Evolution of Dad Dancing” bit. Now, the late night host will be all the better at representing the fine art of dad dancing…because he’s a father! He announced the birth of his Winnie Rose Fallon on television last night and has been reaping in the well wishes ever since.
Justin Timberlake has spent many an evening with Jimmy Fallon, even going so far as to cohost the show for a full week earlier this year. He responded to the news of Jimmy Fallon’s acquired fatherhood status with great enthusiasm, tweeting, “Btw…-@jimmyfallon is a daddy!!!! So happy for you, brother!!”
Abigail Breslin was also excited about the big announcement. She’s a big fan of the late night host, as she mentioned during an interview with Jimmy this past March. Earlier today, the actress tweeted, “Congrats to @jimmyfallon and his wife on their new baby!!!”
Also joining in on the Twitterfest was Jimmy Fallon’s dedicated fan base, many of whom shared their approval for the baby name Winnie Rose. Responding to all the well wishers, Jimmy tweeted, “My wife and I thank you for all of the nice baby well wishes. Her first day was the best day of our lives. So happy. Thanks again.”
We’d like to join the celebs mentioned above in wishing Jimmy Fallon all the best as he embarks on the exciting journey of fatherhood!
