Jimmy Fallon isn't just a late-night host, comedian and actor, he's also a father of two to daughters—Frances, 6 months, and Winnie, almost 2. And that's exactly what's inspired the latest addition to his already accomplished résumé: children's book writer. "Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA" is an adorable picture book where various animal dads work really hard (and fail) at getting their baby's first word to be—you guessed it—"dada." Fallon tells NPR's David Greene, "The thing about this book is there's no real point to it. ... It's a selfish thing. ... I just want the baby's first word to be 'dada.' I don't care if she's smart. I have one agenda."
"The Tonight Show" host has previously spoken about the difficulties he and his wife had trying to get pregnant, eventually using a surrogate to have both babies. He shares with Greene that the experience was an eye-opening one. "I mean, I just love them so much and it's insane. It was a long time, just kind of a weird time. A lot of people don't really talk about it that much, you know, and I think they should. I don't know whether it would be a bigger issue, you know. Should you freeze your eggs or whatever when you're a woman? No one talks about it. I don't think I should be the spokesperson for that stuff. You can talk to my wife about it. But she was like, 'No one tells you.'"
But now that he's a doting dad of two, Fallon finds his iPhone chock-full of pictures of his babies—just like every other parent in the world. And according to Fallon's biography in the book, Winnie's first word was (wait for it) "mama." Maybe he'll get a win with baby Frances later this year! Here's hoping!
