New York: Comedian Jimmy Fallon has penned a picture book for children, which is inspired by his baby daughter.

Fallon's 'Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada' will be published by MaCmillan imprint Feiwel and Friends next June 9, reported Huffington Post.

Fallon wrote a children's book, 'Snowball Fight!' back in 2005, but this is the first one he's written since becoming a father. Te TV host's book is said to be a hilarious account of every father's secret campaign to ensure that their babies' first word is Dada -? not Mama!" Throughout the story, illustrated creatures -- from cows, sheep, and horses to mice and frogs -- try to coax their babies into saying 'Dada'.

"This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by the celebrity. And my baby personally approved of the beautiful artwork by Miguel Ordoneez," the TV star said in a statement.

Fallon, 40, and film producer wife Nancy Juvonen welcomed Winnie Rose last year via gestational surrogacy.
