Jimmy Fallon is already a daddy pro. The 38-year-old comedian and his wife, Nancy Fallon, welcomed their first child, daughter Winnie Rose, on July 23. On Thursday, the "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" host was photographed leaving his New York apartment carrying a briefcase in one hand and his precious, newborn baby girl in the other.

Fallon wrapped his two-week-old daughter in a pink and white animal blanket and skillfully cradled her in one arm. The adorable newborn waved her hand at photographers while keeping her eyes shut.

Winnie's July 23 birth came as a complete surprise to Fallon's fans as he never mentioned he and wife Nancy, who wed in 2007, were expecting. "It's been a crazy couple days, well actually, just one day. It was just yesterday. It feels like I've had a four day conference. It's very taxing on the fathers. I don't know how it is for the mothers, but very taxing," Fallon joked during his opening monologue the next day. "I'm emotionally drained. 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 pounds, 9 ounces."

Fallon had long expressed the desire to become a father. In an interview with Parade magazine in 2011, the former "Saturday Night Live" standout said, "I want to be a dad. That's floating to the top of my list. I think it's such an important thing. I'm at the age where everyone has kids, and I ask them, 'Is it like a puppy?' And they go, 'It's 10 times a puppy.'"
