Jimmy Fallon Pays Emotional Tribute to His Late Mother


On "Tonight Show" Monday night, Jimmy Fallon gave a heartfelt tribute to his mother who passed away earlier this month.

"She was the best audience, the one I was always trying to make laugh. She was such a fan of the show and everything I did," he told viewers as his voice began to crack.

The late night host told a story about how, when he was a child, his mom would squeeze his hand and say "I love you," and he would do the same back.

"And last week, I was in the hospital and I grabbed her hand and squeezed, ‘I love you.' I just knew we were in trouble," Fallon said.

Fallon said he was grateful for his opportunity of being a late night host and thanked fans for all the support he's received.

"We’re going to continue to work really hard to bring some light and some laughter into the world. Thank you for watching. Thank you for helping me and my family recover from this loss," Fallon said.

"Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh. I love you," he ended.
