TODAY's Takeaway: Fallon talks baby, Hoda gets birthday serenade
Friday was full of surprises on TODAY, from Jimmy Fallon's emotional-then-hysterical interview to Kathie Lee's latest musical performance. In case you missed it:
1. In an interview with Savannah that aired this morning, Jimmy Fallon revealed that he and his wife used a surrogate to have their first child, Winnie Rose.
The “Late Night” host gushed over their little bundle of joy: “She’s the coolest – the best thing to ever happen to me.”
2. Jimmy and Savannah then played a game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pie." Maybe no one warned him about Savannah’s clumsiness?
When he visited the plaza on Friday morning (pie in hand), Jimmy took the opportunity to tease her about her spill. “That fall was one of the funniest things," he laughed. "I’m so happy [the cameramen] kept rolling."
3. The parents of “Baby Veronica” visited TODAY to talk about the adoption battle that has the country divided. Melanie and Matt Capobianco were awarded custody of their 3-year-old adoptive daughter by the courts, but they’re still waiting to get her back from her birth father.
“Nobody showed” to turn her over when they were supposed to, the couple told Savannah.
