This time, however, it was a defining moment for her youngest daughter Winnie, as she had just lost a tooth … when the moment stopped while Jimmy was talking with his guests Ciara and Russell Wilson. Russell was talking about the important charity he is involved in and how his organizations gave back during the coronavirus pandemic when Winnie suddenly entered the room.
Jimmy tried to hold her for a moment until he had dealt with what she had just said. “Dad, I lost my tooth,” she told him. And just like that, he had to pause the interview to respond to his excitement. But as parents themselves, Ciara and Russell were just as thrilled with the major moment as Jimmy.
Ciara asked Winnie how it went, and it turned out that there was more going on behind the scenes than just a random loss of teeth. “Mommy put a string around my tooth and she tried to remove it, and then it worked,” Winnie explained simply.
As Jimmy talked with his guests about how they are adjusting to indoor living, life was going on just outside the room for him and his family.
Calling it the “new normal,” Ciara and Russell said they have to get used to having kids interrupt their video meetings and just about everything else.
Like many parents across the country, they became teacher assistants (and sometimes teachers) with Russell replacing as a gym trainer and Ciara even teaching her whole family how to dance… she all family.
“How are Russell’s movements on the dance floor? Asked Jimmy.
“He has his cute little one – he’s a good pocket dancer,” she finally replied.
“Hey, I’m in the pocket, you know what I’m saying? Russell smiles, although we are not entirely sure what she was trying to say.
“He has his nice little groove in which he goes and he does it very well,” said Ciara.
Jimmy actually settles into a nice groove of his own with these editions “At Home” from “The Tonight Show”. The barely controlled chaos of him at home with his family was an absolute pleasure to watch and gave new life to his show. In addition, we are all absolutely in love with his daughters Winnie and Franny.
As much as we want the world to return to what it was, we might almost appreciate seeing a regular “At Home” show tonight once things have calmed down. Maybe Jimmy could film his Friday shows from home, or at least come back from time to time.
We will miss his daughters, his nice slides and playhouse, the incredible “graphics” created by his daughter … really all about it.
