Nov. 5 (UPI) -- The mother of Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has died at the age of 68.

"Jimmy Fallon's mother, Gloria, died peacefully on Saturday," a family representative told People magazine in a statement, without specifying the cause of the woman's death. "Jimmy was at his mother's bedside, along with her loved ones, when she passed away at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC. Our prayers go out to Jimmy and his family as they go through this tough time."

The 43-year-old comedian canceled Friday's scheduled taping of his chat program due to a "private family matter."

Deadline.com reported at the time a source said Fallon's mother had been hospitalized.
