Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen Told Their Love Story on The Tonight Show, and Wow, My Heart
Everyone deserves a love like Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen's. On Tuesday night, the couple brought back their "Ask the Fallons" segment for The Tonight Show: At Home Edition, and it made me fall for their relationship all over again. Jimmy once again crowdsourced questions from fans on Twitter, which prompted a viewer to ask Nancy for her first impression of her now-husband when they met.
Although many people think they met on the set of Fever Pitch, Nancy and Jimmy were actually introduced through Drew Barrymore when Nancy visited the Saturday Night Live set. Nancy remembers Jimmy reaching out to her in an otherwise "intimidating" environment, and he definitely made an impression. They would later reunite to film Fever Pitch which Nancy produced and Jimmy starred in. "You were just so friendly and fun and welcoming," she said.
For Jimmy, he remembers the "magic" of falling in love with Nancy down to the outfits she was wearing. "You just stood out in this gray," he said. "It was almost like a painting." Can you hear that? It's the sound of one million people saying "Awww" across the nation. Watch the video above to hear the full "When Nancy Met Jimmy" story, and also find out how Nancy reacted when Jimmy surprised her with their dog Gary. Spoiler: he does not advise getting your wife a dog.
