Los Angeles: Funnyman Jimmy Fallon has revealed that he and his wife had their daughter, Winnie Rose, with the help of a surrogate.

The 38-year-old chat show host, who recently welcomed Rose with wife Nancy Juvonen, disclosed that their new child was born via a surrogate after struggling with fertility problems.

"It wasn`t really a secret, but my wife and I had been trying for a while to have a baby. We`ve tried a bunch of different things, so we had a surrogate," he said.

The couple initially intended to keep the news to themselves.

"This time we just said we`re not going to tell anybody, it`d be just more fun if it`s just private between me and my wife and then we get to introduce her to everybody," he said.

Although they shared the news in the excitement of becoming a parent.
