Jimmy Fallon to take third day of paternity leave

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Jimmy Fallon plans to take a third day of paternity leave from his "Tonight Show" duties.

NBC says it will air a repeat "Tonight Show" episode Friday so Fallon can spend another day with his new daughter, Frances Cole Fallon.

The scheduled Wednesday and Thursday "Tonight" tapings had already been canceled after her arrival Wednesday morning.

Little Frances joins big sister Winnie Rose, 1. Both daughters were born to Fallon and wife, Nancy, via a surrogate.

Fallon, who took over hosting "The Tonight Show" last February, has a book deal for a children's picture book, "Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada," scheduled for release in June.
