Jimmy Fallon Makes Every Decision With His Daughters in Mind

By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer

Before Jimmy Fallon’s big Super Bowl LIV commercial debuted during the big game, the poplar late night host told Yahoo his daughters were the reason he did it.

“They’re the best thing that ever happened to me and it’s the whole reason that we’re all doing all this,” Fallon said. “The whole reason I do anything is for them and it’s a good ego check because without them, without my wife, it’d be boring. And it makes you feel alive.”

The TONIGHT SHOW host has two daughters, Winnie Rose, 6, and Frances Cole, 5.

In his Yahoo! interview, Fallon touched on the popular phrase ‘girl dad,’ inspired by his longtime friend Kobe Bryant’s comments about being a dad to all girls. The hashtag #girldad has been trending since Bryant’s death late last month.

“It’s the best thing in the world, I’m so happy I’m a girl dad. I honestly don’t know what I’d do with a boy — I love boys, but I’m so in love and I’m so lucky to have these two little angels waking me up at 4 in the morning every single [day], consistently since they were babies,” Fallon said.

The host and his family were so excited about the commercial that he even wanted to try and keep his girls awake to see it.

“I’m going to try to keep my kids up to watch it. My wife is excited even though I get enough attention, she’s like ‘Alright, I’ll give you another one.’ We’re all excited, my family’s excited, my dad, my sister — everyone’s freaking out kind of, it’s really cool.”

Please pray for Fallon to raise his children with godly morals and values.
