Like any parent having a grown-up night on the red carpet, Jimmy Fallon couldn't resist saying hi to his new baby from the Emmy Awards – his new puppy, that is.

While chatting with Ryan Seacrest on the pre-show arrivals line, Fallon gushed about Gary, the female golden retriever he brought home earlier this month.

"It's like having a baby except no diapers," Fallon said of life with Gary. "It's my first puppy ever."

In a Tweet posted earlier Sunday, Fallon called Gary his "new best friend," and reinforced the point with Seacrest.

"It's amazing, it's a life changer," he said. "I love her so much. She's my best friend."

Fallon then waved to the camera and said hi to his pooch, who he said was watching.
