Jimmy Fallon’s mother, Gloria Fallon, 68, passed away over the weekend.
In a statement, a rep said, “Jimmy Fallon’s mother, Gloria, died peacefully on Saturday. Jimmy was at his mother’s bedside, along with her loved ones, when she passed away at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC. Our prayers go out to Jimmy and his family as they go through this tough time.”
The news comes one day after the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon host cancelled a taping of the late-night talk show. On Friday, it was reported Fallon had cancelled the show’s taping due to “a private Fallon family matter.”
The network aired a repeat episode of the show from September instead.
According to IMDB, the comedian’s mother has appeared as her self on the late-night show two times since Fallon began hosting in 2014.
