He shared the news of the baby's arrival on his Twitter account.

"When it happened we were in shock. We're like, 'Alright, who do we tell? Who's going to be mad at us if this gets out?' We had to call everybody and it's so emotional when you call everybody," Fallon said.

Apart from Fallon and Juvonen there are many celebrity and non-celebrity couples who have adopted surrogacy method to welcome children. Celebrities such Elton John and David Furnish and Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill Rancic chose surrogacy to extend their families.
