Jimmy Fallon's friends send 'thoughts and prayers' after death of Fallon's mother

Supportive'Together with the rest of his loved ones they are by her side right now' a source told People of the matter describing his family as'very close knit

The comedian and late night host cancelled his Friday taping due to a family emergency but it is thought that his mother, Gloria, 68, later died at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City on Saturday.

The death was confirmed by a family spokesperson in a statement to the press: "Jimmy Fallon's mother, Gloria, died peacefully on Saturday".

Fallon, 43, has often talked about his childhood and family.

Fallon described his childhood with mom Gloria, dad Jim and sister Gloria in a 2004 NY magazine article. We also remember seeing some of them on a segment on Top Chef in the past. This is the person we hope is getting plenty of love and support at the moment.

This happened just one day after Jimmy Fallon has unexpectedly canceled a taping on The Tonight Show.

Fallon's mother was ill and in a hospital at the time of the "Tonight Show" cancellation, said a person familiar with the matter. According to an anecdote told by Danny DeVito, Fallon once interrupted a Broadway performance by Robert De Niro when she opened a candy wrapper.

Fans and friends tweeted their condolences to Fallon over the weekend, including Stephen Colbert, who wrote, "Mom is the first audience and the best". Jimmy Fallon's mom has either passed away or it's about to happen. "Remembering Jimmy Fallon and his family in our prayers today".
