Jimmy Fallon says he and his wifehad their baby daughter with the help of a surrogate.

Winnie Rose Fallon, the daughter of the NBC late-night comic and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, was born July 23. Fallon said in a portion of a "Today" show interview broadcast Friday that the couple had been trying for a while to have a child before succeeding with the help of a surrogate.

The couple kept it all a secret until Winnie was born.

After Winnie was born, Fallon announced the news, saying, "I'm a father of a beautiful baby girl. She's so cute. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she's so cute. She's 5 lbs., 9 oz. Me and my wife are so happy."

NBC said a more extensive portion of Savannah Guthrie's interview with the incoming "The Tonight Show" host will be broadcast next week.
