So many of us have had to change our daily routine and large parts of our life. We’re sheltering at home, and many have either lost their jobs or had to switch to working from home. Often without childcare and a partner who is also trying to juggle it. For Jimmy Fallon, who needed to halt his studio production of The Tonight Show, he made the best of it by moving his show to his house. He has been interviewing celebrities via video conference and enlisting the help of his daughters and wife. For his latest episode, he interviewed his wife, and it’s something to see.

The late-night host started off the latest edition of The Tonight Show: At Home Edition with the help of his two daughters, 6-year-old Winnie and 5-year-old Franny. Jimmy’s wife, Nancy, was also on this episode but had some extra time with a new segment they kicked off called “Ask the Fallons.” Since the show moved to his house, Nancy has taken on the role of the cameraperson, but this is the first time we’ve seen her on camera since he started his show.

Jimmy took to Twitter to crowd source some questions from his fans that they wanted to ask Nancy. The two went for a walk around their neighborhood, while being mindful of social distancing, and had a fun chat. We learned a lot about their relationship, including how they act when they first wake up if their kids sleep in their bedroom (Franny sleeps on their pillows above their heads).

The married couple talked about whether Jimmy is a romantic or not and we learned a lot more about Nancy’s background and her over 20-year partnership with Drew Barrymore as a producer and all various jobs she used to have.

The segment was the first time we got to learn more about his wife and see their dynamic together. We hope it wasn’t a last because it was chill, adorable, and it seems like it would be entertaining to hang out with these two.
