We love Jimmy Fallon for many reasons — his hilarity, his devoted parenting, his stealth show-stealing in Factory Girl, please don’t tell us you missed that, and of course, his Halloween candy pranks.
And this week, we love Fallon for his straight-shooting words towards other celeb dads of note — namely, one Justin Timberlake, you may have heard of him.
Fallon got candid with Entertainment Tonight this past weekend about parenting, and The Tonight Show host and father of two had some simple tips for good pal JT. That, and he pretty much wants to hire Timberlake’s son Silas as his stylist. I mean, don’t we all though.
From one papa to another
But even well-behaved and well-dressed tots have been known cause some trouble now and again, and even celeb dads could use some advice, right? Luckily for JT, Fallon has survived six whole years of fatherhood thanks to daughters Winnie, who is six, and Frances as well as his producer wife Nancy Juvonen.
When asked what fatherhood advice Fallon would give Timberlake, the Tonight Show host simply recommended that Justin bring in backup.
Wouldn’t give it up for the world
Fallon is in the baby biz himself now, with his latest book This Is Baby, out on shelves this month. But this famous father doesn’t have all the answers; he’s just as exhausted as anyone.
When asked having to regularly share his bed with both kids as well as the dog, the comic in his usual jovial demeanor replied that he is much more tired than he’s ever been but regardless, it’s the best and the most rewarding thing to him.
This is Baby, Fallon’s latest book for little ones, is available now. The TV star is already a best-selling author, courtesy of his previous titles, Everything is Mama and Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA.
