And the baby’s name is…Frances Cole Fallon! (That qualifies as an old-timey name, don’t you think, new mama Ariel Brewster?)

“Frances Cole Fallon officially entered the world at 8:45 a.m. on Dec. 3, weighing 5 lbs., 11 oz. and is 18.5 inches long,” the rep’s statement says. “Their new addition joins big sister, Winnie Rose, 16 months. The couple opted to keep their baby joy to themselves until their new daughter made her official debut. Both Fallon babies were born via surrogate.”

As it says in the statement, the couple’s surrogacy process was kept totally secret. But, Jimmy came out right away to tweet a message from baby “Franny”…

The Tonight Show also tweeted about the happy news—indicating Jimmy would be taking a bit time off for good reason!

An exciting time for Jimmy, indeed: He also wrote a baby book this year, and he’s just been crowned Entertainment Weekly‘s Entertainer of the Year.
