It was the moment Jimmy Fallon's fans had been waiting for: after his wife screenwriter Nancy Juvonen gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Tuesday (23rd July), devotees to his Late Night TV show clamoured to learn the name of the little one almost as much as the world were rabid for details on the royal baby who was born a day earlier...almost.

Last night, the 38-year-old comedian opened his show with a special monologue setting the record straight about his newfound fatherhood: "I'm your host 'dada.' I'm the father of a beautiful baby girl, she's so cute. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she's so cute...she's five pounds nine ounces" gushed the presenter to shrieks of excitement from his audience. It was inevitable that amidst the recent media storm, the royal baby would be mentioned in relation to the timing of Winnie Rose's birth: "Yes William and Kate, we'll definitely set up a play date, stop bothering me. Yes, everyone's still talking about the other baby."

The entertainer also spoke about how it felt to suddenly have Dad responsibilities: "It's very taxing on the fathers, I don't know how it is for the mothers. "Me and my wife are so happy."

Fallon started his showbiz career as an impressionist comedian, earning him the public's attention when he began working as a cast member on Saturday Night Live in the late 90s. He took over from host Conan O'Brien on NBC's Late Night in 2009 which became his own show; Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It's been an exciting year for the New Yorker: it was announced in April 2013 that Fallon would replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show after the Winter 2014 Olympics, with SNL comedy man Seth Meyers succeeding Fallon on Late Night. He and Juvonen, a producer, married in 2007.
