The comedian revealed his daughter's name and why he's now going up to strangers on the street.

Jimmy Fallon returned to the Late Night stage Wednesday night after he and his wife welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday, and he spent much of his monologue gushing about his new daughter.

"Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon, and she's so cute. She's five pounds, nine ounces," Fallon explained, admitting that he was so overcome with excitement he was sharing all the details.

Fallon, who appeared to still be wearing a hospital bracelet, said, "It's been a crazy couple of days" before realizing that merely one day had passed since his daughter was born, not several.

"It's very taxing on the fathers," he noted. "I don't know how it is on the mothers. I'm emotionally drained."

Fallon again thanked people for their well wishes on Twitter, Facebook and blogs, saying that he now understands people's willingness to post photos on Facebook, claiming that he's going up to strangers on the street with his phone asking if they want to see a picture of his baby. The audience, however, was not treated to a photo.

But, Fallon did promise Prince William and Kate Middleton that they would set up a play date with "the other baby, the royal baby."

And at one point, Fallon admitted, "I hope I don't screw this up."
