Everybody deserves a love like Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen have. On Tuesday night, the two brought back their “Ask the Fallons” segment for The Tonight Show: At Home Edition, and it made people fall in love with their relationship.
One viewer asked Nancy for her first impression of her now-husband when they met.
Even though many people think they met on the set of Fever Pitch, they were actually introduced through Drew Barrymore when Nancy came to the Saturday Night Live set.
She remembers Jimmy reaching out to her in an otherwise “intimidating” environment, and he, for sure, made an impression. They later reunited to film Fever Pitch, which Nancy was producing, and Jimmy starred in. “You were just so friendly and fun and welcoming,” Nancy said.
Jimmy remembers the “magic” of falling in love with Nancy down to the outfits she wore. “You just stood out in this gray,” he said. “It was almost like a painting.” We recommend watching the full video to hear the entire “When Nancy Met Jimmy” story, and also to find out how Nancy reacted when Jimmy surprised her with a dog. Spoiler: Jimmy does not recommend getting your wife a dog.
