The 38-year-old funny man and 46-year-old Nancy Juvonen Fallon welcomed their daughter on July 23. They did not reveal the pregnancy news until their child was born. He shared the news of the baby's arrival on his Twitter account. "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," Fallon said. However, he shared the news of the baby's arrival on his Twitter account.

A couple of days later Fallon introduced his baby daughter via Instagram. "I'm the father of a beautiful baby girl. She's so cute. She's 5 lbs., 9 oz. Me and my wife are so happy. Thank you all for all the well-wishes on Facebook and Twitter and the blogs. I'm just so happy," he said.

"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.
