This Just In: Jimmy Fallon Is the Perfect Husband and Dad

Feb 14 2014 - 11:20am

Jimmy Fallon [1] has big shoes to fill as he takes over The Tonight Show starting next week [2], but he's ready — thanks to his 6-month-old daughter, Winnie. As he explains in the Feb. 16 issue of Parade, the way she "squeals and chirps" makes him and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, feel like they're "in a Disney cartoon." All joking aside, Jimmy is more than ready — albeit nervous — for this "insane" opportunity starring on the historical late-night show, and he already has two dream guests in mind: Queen Elizabeth and Pope Francis. "I'd make it fun for them," he promised.

Keep reading for more from Jimmy's Parade cover story, including the sweet story about him falling in love with his wife, some tough memories from a decade ago when he had two back-to-back box-office flops, and an emotional video about his career move. Oh, and if you're wondering what Jimmy is doing for Valentine's Day, picture him in an apron. According to his wife, she shops for him at Williams-Sonoma [3] for all sorts of cooking gadgets, and his most recent endeavor was making sous vide baby food for Winnie. Aww!
