Working from home is tough for the best of us — it can be super hard to stay focused, stay positive, and stay in touch with your coworkers. Especially if you have kids. During this period of isolation, even late night show hosts are opting to work from home, including Jimmy Fallon.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available. Some of the information in this story may have changed since publication, and we encourage readers to use online resources from CDC and WHO to stay up to date on the latest information surrounding COVID-19.

Working from home with your kids around is definitely not easy.

The amount of kids' shrieking, screaming, laughing, and just general chaos being heard over Skype/Hangout/Zoom meetings has skyrocketed in recent weeks, and nobody is more affected than the parents themselves.

People know it's a hectic environment.

And obviously, kids are kids, and it doesn't matter if they're a celebrity's kids or not — they're going to behave just as wild and crazy as everyone else's children.

Maybe even moreso if their dad is Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy is a father of two very cute little girls.

His oldest daughter, Winnie, is seven and his youngest daughter, Frances, is six, which any parent can tell you are not the ideal ages for kids around you when you're trying to get work done.

His most recent show really showcases the struggles that tons of parents are going through right now.

His kids scream, yell, run in front of the camera, and climb all over him while he tries to deliver his opening monologue, which any parent working from home right now could tell you is par for the course.

If you're also a parent working from home, I'm sure you'll relate to what he's dealing with, and if you're not, it should definitely make you grateful for that!

Fans loved seeing Jimmy's "honest take" on what working with kids is like.

It would've probably been easy for Jimmy to pretend that nothing was different for him working at home (at least while the cameras were on) but fans were happy to see a celebrity acknowledge how tough it can be.

Fans definitely felt it was relatable energy.

I don't have kids, but I have been in meetings with those (very strong) people working from home with kids, and I can confirm that the energy is almost identical to Jimmy's video.

Most of all, fans were loving the "wholesome content" of Jimmy being with his kids.

In a world where so much of our news is scary and dark, it's definitely relaxing to just see a fun dad dealing with his enthusiastic kids while working from home.
