Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Jimmy Fallon
, so you'll have to excuse me when I say...
Move over sweet, adorable royal prince! Because... drumroll, please
... the king of late-night's firstborn child has arrived!
Jimmy Fallon and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, welcomed their firstborn child – a girl – on Tuesday, July 23, at 6:21 a.m.
Like most of you, I was shocked by the news. I had no idea they were expecting! Jimmy really knows how to keep his private life... ummm... private. Nonetheless, I am extremely happy for them. They are about to embark on a journey like no other.
If I could impart some words of wisdom to my new favourite celebrity dad (sorry Ben Affleck, but Jimmy is a dad now) they would be...
- Cherish every single moment of every single day.
- Let her sleep on your chest. Nothing is sweeter than listening to the rhythm of her laboured breathing so close to your heart.
- Never ever worry about spoiling her. There is no such thing as loving her too much. Pick her up. Hold her close. Hug her tight.
- Be there... always! First smiles, first steps, first words are all made so much more special with Daddy by her side.
She's a lucky little girl, Jimmy, and there is no doubt in my mind that you're going to be a great dad. Embrace it all... every step of the way.
Congratulations, Jimmy! You are officially my new favourite celebrity dad.
