The comedian, who's now a bestselling children's author thanks to picture books like Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada, said that he and the Marry Me star "have always wanted to do something together."

"One of the many things I love about her is how great of a mom she is. Since we're both parents, we thought a children's book would be the perfect fit," he explained. "It's fun and educational and my Spanish teachers from high school would be so impressed to know that I'm teaching kids to speak Spanish with Jennifer Lopez."

The 48-page story, which is illustrated by Andrew Campos, centers on Pollo, a friendly chicken who loves to play. It's described as "an engaging and hilarious picture book that serves young readers as an introduction to basic Spanish vocabulary."

The work is being published by Macmillan's Feiwel & Friend, which is the same publishing house that produced the talk show host's other children's stories.

"This book is about friendship and sweetness and all about learning a little Spanish. The combined talents of Jimmy Fallon and Jennifer Lopez's story as presented by new artist, Andrea Campos, are just MAGIC!"

While the Saturday Night Live alum is a dad to daughters Frances, 7, and Winnie, 8, Lopez is a mom to twins Emme and Max, who turned 14 on February 22.
