Inside Jimmy Fallon's blissful marriage with Nancy Juvonen: The complete story here!
Saturday Night Live alum and the host of the eponymous show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC, Jimmy Fallon is an actor and comedian but is better recognized as a host. The Jimmy Fallon show has earned him six Primetime Emmy Awards and five People's Choice Awards.
James Thomas Fallon was born on September 19, 1974, in New York City. Fallon's early obsession with the late-night comedy program Saturday Night Live propelled him to pursue comedy. Fallon debuted on SNL in 1998 and went on to work as one of the best mimics in the show until 2000. Jimmy met his now-wife, Nancy Juvonen, during his early stint in SNL, but the pair embarked upon their romantic journey years after Jimmy left the show. The complete story ahead.
Who is Jimmy Fallon's wife?
Fallon was starring as many original characters in the SNL and had built a large fan base, especially among the ladies, when he came across Nancy Juvonen, who also couldn't evade Jimmy's charm. Juvonen, a film producer, says she crept in the sets as her BFF Drew Barrymore was hosting the show at the time. Fallon and Juvonen didn't connect immediately, but the pair gave it a try when their paths coincided once again on the sets on Fever Pitch in 2005.

Juvonen is a native of Connecticut and is the co-founder of the production company Flower Films. Best known for her decades-long friendship with Barrymore, Juvonen is responsible for producing most of Drew's hits, including Charlie Angles, Never Been Kissed, Donnie Darko, 50 First Dates, and the recently released The Stand-in.
Nancy describes Fallon's initial impression as fun, friendly, and welcoming. "We got to just be pals and have crushes," Juvenen revealed. It didn't take the SNL fame long to realize Juvonen was the one. Fallon proposed to Nancy at her family's dock in New Hampshire in August 2007. The comedian recalls how he ended up crying and quivering while popping the question to Nancy.

The couple didn't stall the wedding for long and walked down the aisle the same year in December. The couple tied the knots at billionaire Richard Branson's Necker Island, who was a huge fan of Fallon and rented him the island for three days. The happy couple doting parents to two girls.

Fallon and Juvonen welcomed their first daughter, Winnie, in 2013, and their second, Frances, in 2013. But the path to parenthood didn't come easy; Fallon revealed the couple struggled with fertility and tried a bunch of things before they could conceive their girls. "Anyone who's tried will know, it's just awful," shares Fallon, who authored Your Baby's" First Word Will Be DADA after becoming a father.

"Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be," sang the New-York based comedian, who is currently on a break as NBC airs the Winter Olympic in his night show's time slot. The Tonight Show is returning on Monday. Jimmy's surprise appearance on the Nashville stage comes a day after a woman accused SNL alum Horatio Sanz of sexually abusing her when she was 17 and alleged Fallon and other cast members overlooked the crime.
"Horatio certainly is the main character here, but he didn’t abuse me in a vacuum; he abused me all over Saturday Night Live," the unnamed accuser said, hinting at Fallon and others' acquaintance with Sanz's inappropriate relationship with her.
