Jimmy Fallon is getting into the (summer) holiday spirit two days early. On July 2, the late-night TV host shared a rare family photo featuring his wife, Nancy Juvonen, and their daughters, Winnie and Frances. In the photo, the family of four is all smiles as they stand on a dock, but Fallon makes it clear in his caption that he had conditions in place before taking the photo.
“I agreed to take this photo only if I could stand on the dry side of the dock,” Fallon wrote. “Happy 2nd of July!” While his request may seem strange, the dock is absolutely drenched, and in his defense, he is wearing pristine white sneakers. Meanwhile, his wife is wearing wedge sandals, and the girls are rocking the ultimate summer footwear: bare feet.
Fallon’s family vacation snap quickly garnered lots of love from his famous friends. Chance the Rapper commented, “Beautiful,” alongside an emotional emoji, while Chelsea Handler added, “I love this photo.” However, Justin Long had the best comment of them all. “Nan!!! Winnepesaukee! I’m thinking about driving up there and yelling your name in the town square until you respond ‘What About Bob’-style,” he wrote.
While Fallon sometimes discusses his family on “The Tonight Show,” he rarely shares photos of his kids on social media, but he is open about how much being a dad means to him. In addition to being a children’s book author, he’s also candid about the more trying aspects of parenthood, including disciplining his daughters. During a 2020 interview with People, Fallon shared that he’s a big softie when it comes to his girls.
“Moms should know that even the manliest guys will become softies when they have daughters. Dads immediately fall in love with their little girls, and will let them get away with everything,” he said. “So moms are going to have to be the disciplinarians when it comes to daughters.”
