will ferrell wife conan Will Ferrell and wife Viveca Paulin send off Conan O'Brien on 'Tonight Show'Watch Will Ferrell and his wife Viveca Paulin do “Freebird” with Conan O’Brien on his final “Tonight Show” broadcast.

Conan O’Brien said good-bye to “The Tonight Show” in a completely classy way, with funny guests, a very heartfelt speech about NBC, huge thanks for his fans and a performance of “Freebird.”

The “Freebird” performance came complete with Will Ferrell dressed as a Lynyrd Skynyrd wannabe, complete with pregnant hippie wife “Dawn” that he kept making out with. “Dawn” was in fact played by Ferrell’s real-life wife Viveca Paulin, a Swedish actress he married in August 2000.

We hardly knew ye, Conan. We can’t wait to see what you do next.
