If you're not already in love with Jimmy Fallon, you're about to be.

The host of The Tonight Show opened up to Parents about his forthcoming children's book and life as a dad, and he couldn't be cuter. Father to two daughters now, Fallon says that having children has completely changed his life and even made him a bit of a softie!

Ahead of Mother's Day Sunday, Fallon revealed that it's probably going to be his wife and other moms who will have to do the punishing. Just what they wanted to hear ahead of their appreciation day!

"Moms should know that even the manliest guys will become softies when they have daughters," he told the magazine. "Dads immediately fall in love with their little girls, and will let them get away with everything. So moms are going to have to be the disciplinarians when it comes to daughters."

Well, when you put it like that...


He also revealed that as soon as Winnie, his firstborn, entered the world, he immediately became "one of those dads" who shows everyone pics of his little girls. "I thought I'd never be that annoying person, but as soon as Winnie was born I was showing iPhone snaps to a cab driver," he said.

His younger daughter, Frances Cole Fallon, is still just a little baby, so he has been able to do more activities with Winnie, including playing the guitar. (Casually not trying to freak out about the idea of Jimmy serenading us with an instrument). It turns out he and Winnie make up songs and dance together!

"I play this song on the guitar that I made up that goes: 'I'm dancin', I'm dancin', I'm dance-dance-dance-dance-dancin'' and Winnie just spins around in a circle until she gets dizzy and almost falls, which is funny," he dished. "But it's also becoming dangerous."

Although fatherhood is an incredible experience for him, he admits that he couldn't do it without his wife and mother of his children, Nancy Juvonen. No wonder he spent an entire segment dedicated to the upcoming holiday. He chose to honor Mother's Day by airing a segment about #MomQuotes Thursday night.

Jimmy turned to Twitter to ask his followers to submit hilarious quotes from mothers who just didn't realize what they were saying.

"Was teaching my mom Facebook. She said a friend's photo was pretty. I said, 'You should LIKE it.' She said, 'I do!' #MomQuotes," one user wrote.

Another tweeted, "My mom asked 'Did you take a YouBert to get home last night?' She meant Uber #MomQuotes."

One mom tried to understand how Instagram worked, but ended up in a similar boat as the mom who just couldn't learn Facebook. "My mom put a picture on Instagram with the caption 'I'm the luckiest mom,' but cropped me out so it was just a picture of her #MomQuotes," another revealed.
