, Winnie Rose Fallon, born July 23.
“My wife and I had been trying for awhile to have a baby,” Fallon told TODAY.
“We tried a bunch of different things, so we had a surrogate.”

In an interview on OWN last year with Oprah Winfrey, Hobson detailed the evolution of their relationship.
“I think it works because we are extraordinarily open-minded people and we’re open to what the universe brings us, and I think we didn’t have preconceived ideas about what a partnership should be and so we allowed ourselves to discover something that was unexpected.”
The marriage is the first for Hobson, the second for Lucas.
