Jimmy Fallon chokes up in heart-wrenching tribute to his late mother
Just nine days after the tragic passing of his 68-year-old mother, Gloria, Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show on NBC.
Fallon started off in high spirits but quickly choked up as he delivered a heartfelt tribute to his mother.
After sharing a fond memory of Gloria, he had to compose himself before explaining how difficult it was to see her deteriorate.
He also explained how important she was in his life, providing him with purpose and inspiration.
Last week’s edition of the show was cancelled after Gloria suddenly became ill. She sadly passed away on November 4 surrounded by Fallon and other members of the family.
Reruns were broadcast through the week as he mourned, but he returned on Monday night to resume the live show.
