Jimmy Fallon opens up on fertility struggles

Jimmy Fallon's road to parenthood was a difficult one, as he and his wife Nancy Juvonen struggled with fertility issues before welcoming daughter Winnie Rose this summer.

"My wife and I had been trying for a while to have a baby, and we tried a bunch of things. Anyone who's tried will know, it's just awful," Fallon, 38, told Savannah Guthrie on the "Today" show Tuesday.

Fallon and his wife tried for five years to have a baby, and learned during that time that it was best if they didn't reveal the process until the little one arrived.

"We tried before, and we told people, and then it didn't happen, and it's really depressing," Fallon said. "So this time, we said we're not going to tell anybody. It would just be more fun if it's private between me and my wife, and then we get to introduce her to everybody."

And introduce her Fallon has - the happy new dad tweeted a few photos of Winnie two days after her July 23 birth.

"I'm so happy right now, I'm freaking out," he said. "She's a little angel. A friend of mine said that little girls unlock something in a dad's heart ... she turns me into mush."

While Fallon is definitely a fan of Winnie-the-Pooh, their daughter isn't the honey-loving bear's namesake.

"My wife and I got engaged in New Hampshire at this lake house that her family's had forever on Lake Winnipesaukee. We went there every summer as we were dating. So we thought, Winnie, and I love Winnie. ... She's a 'win' for us. It's a big win for us."

  34. Tellingitlikeitis

    The lady is 46 years and they kept on trying starting when she was 41 when her own eggs were "nil" in procreating? Come one, Jimmy, tell us the truth about how the two of you came about procreating. I can see if she had her eggs frozen a couple of decades ago and saved it for someone like Jimmy to come along and thaw it out; but not naturally.

      Obviously you are totally unware that Elizabeth Edwards gave birth to children when she was 48 and 50! With modern medicine you can still give birth for many years.

    Her ovaries are fossilized and she completely missed the procreation bus. Time to start thinking about adopting a third world refugee, like Angelina Jolie or Madonna or Scarlett Johanson or Sandra Bullock.

      Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Scarlett Johanson and Sandra Bullock are third world refugees? Really? Do you think they'd be willing to let me adopt them? I'll take the whole set!
