1. Nancy Just Gave Birth to Jimmy’s Baby Girl
Nancy Juvonen and husband Jimmy Fallon have just welcomed their first child this morning at 6:21 a.m. in New York. Congrats to the new parents! Much like the Royal Baby, no name has been announced yet. Hey, maybe Kate Middleton and Nancy can hook the two youngsters up for a play date.
2. Fallon’s Wife is Much Older Than He Is
Jimmy Fallon is 38 years-old, while his wife Nancy is actually 46, but age is just a number. Right, children? In any case, the two lovebirds married on December 22, 2007 at Necker Island in the Caribbean. Fallon had popped the question to his lovely bride in New Hampshire at her family home, where On Golden Pond was actually filmed. With a one-of-a-kind designer Neil Lane ring, how could Nancy refuse?
In an article for People, Fallon described his then fiancee:
She’s the coolest girl in the world.

3. Drew Barrymore Introduced Nancy to Jimmy Fallon
Many know that Nancy Juvonen is a Hollywood producer, but what many don’t know is that she actually partners with Drew Barrymore in running the production company Flower Films. The two started small in 1995 and grew to produce feature films including Fever Pitch. Enter Jimmy.
In 2005, Fever Pitch came out, which starred Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon. It was on the making of this film that the Nancy hit it off with her now-husband.
Some of the Barrymore films Nancy has produced include Never Been Kissed, 50 First Dates, and Music and Lyrics.
So, how did Juvonen get her start before becoming Drew Barrymore’s BFF? In an interview on Lindzi.com, writer Lindzi Scharf talked about Juvonen’s beginnings.
After graduation she worked odd jobs. She spent time at a dude ranch in Wyoming, worked as a private flight attendant, even worked for “an artist trying to erase homelessness.” Eventually Ms. Juvonen got her big break as an assistant to Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons, a member of Bruce Springsteen’s “E Street Band.
4. Juvonen Has A-Listers on Speed-Dial
So, apparently Barrymore and Juvonen have been friends for many years and are very close. According to People, Barrymore even threw Juvonen a star-studded 40th birthday party. Guests included Eva Mendes, Courtney Love, Jason Bateman, Kathy Griffin, and Fred Savage.
Juvonen and Fallon also recently attended Justin Timberlake nuptials to bride Jessica Biel, where Fallon reportedly heckled Timberlake.
5. Juvonen Has the Same Birthday as Tina Fey
Happy, happy birthday to both Tina Fey and Nancy Juvonen, two beautiful ladies who I wish gave birth to me.

We all know Jimmy Fallon used to be on SNL as co-anchor to Tina Fey. Coincidentally, the actor/comedian/talk show host’s wife has the same birthday as his co-anchor in crime.
Happy Belated Birthday to both of Fallon’s girls!
Happy Birthday to two beautifully awesome people, Nancy Juvonen and Tina Fey.
