Jimmy Fallon's period of self-isolation from his wife of over a decade, Nancy Juvonen, served to reaffirm their love for each and help them discover something they thought they knew.


Times of crisis can either make or break a family. For one TV personality, Jimmy Fallon, his time of self-isolation amid the Coronavirus pandemic helped make his relationship with his wife, Nancy Juvonen, stronger.

The "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" host joined "Today" Savannah Guthrie to discuss how he spent time in self-isolation. The Wednesday episode of the show showed Fallon connected to the morning show via Skype.

The night show host told Guthrie that he is spending more time bonding with Juvonen, and their daughters Winnie, 6, and Frances, 5. He said,

"[I] and my wife were talking, and we were like 'Wow! We like each other. We chose well.'"

Fallon said he and his family have been painting and playing in their background. His daughters follow him around the house and appear on his home version of "The Tonight Show."



The four-time Emmy winner, like most of his colleagues, have been working from home. Winnie and Frances serve as the graphic designers, while their mother has the job of the cameraman.

Fallon is enjoying every moment with his family, but he has also not forgotten his fans.

Fallon noted that the show must go on, and people need to have a sense of normalcy. He told Guthrie that Juvonen reminded him to be courageous and inspired him to do the show from home.



The TV host and his wife have been married since December 2007. The two exchanged vows after a memorable proposal at the mom-of-two family home in New Hampshire.

In 2018, Fallon told People that he had to move his proposal to the summer of 2007 after Juvonen, who is a Hollywood producer, surprised him with a dinner date at a restaurant on the day he planned to propose.



The dad-of-two said he wanted the proposal to happen at a place he could take his kids to after telling them the story. He noted that he ended up crying, but the producer said yes, and the rest became history.

Two kids and over a decade later, the couple is as close as ever, and love each other unconditionally. Fallon is enjoying every moment with his family, but he has also not forgotten his fans.


On Monday, the TV personality shared a video on Instagram, in which he asked his fans to ensure they wash their hands. The clip showed Winnie and Frances washing their hands in the bathroom.

Fallon also asked his followers to avoid touching their face with their hands. He added that if people can do the two, then the world would be a safer and better place.
