Jimmy Fallon's daughters got a very special gift.

The late-night host, 49, appeared on Live with Kelly and Mark on Tuesday, where he opened up about his daughters' latest request.

Fallon began by noting that Frances Cole recently celebrated her 9th birthday.

"She had a little birthday party with little 9-year-old kids. Man, boys are just animals. I'm so happy to have girls," he laughed. "They're great. And it's just cute — we had cotton candy and they were dancing to Taylor Swift and it was beautiful."

He went on to note that Frannie and big sister Winnie Rose, 10, are "so into Christmas," but he "doesn't know what they want for Christmas."

"I know their friends are getting phones," he began, to which both Kelly Ripa and her husband and co-host, Mark Consuelos immediately interrupted with advice.

"Don't do it," they both said in agreeance.

"I know, but it's happening," Fallon resigned, adding, "It's out of my control!"

"No, no, no. Don’t do it. Don’t do it," Ripa urged.

"They’re going to get it!" he said, adding, "It's already done!" as Ripa continued her pleas.

"Get her a flip phone," Consuelos suggested.

"I GOT THEM A PHONE!" he yelled, laughing.

In 2020, Fallon talked about how being a dad made him more compassionate to other parents.

“My biggest revelation [about fatherhood] is how much I ended up caring for other people's kids, if that makes any sense. You get it more,” Fallon told Fatherly at the time.

"When I didn’t have kids, if I heard a crying baby in the restaurant, I would think, ‘Can you stop the crying and go around the block?’ Now I would be like, ‘Just give me the baby — how can I help? I’ve been there.’"
