Daddy Cohen! Andy Cohen is a proud father of two and will welcome his first child, Ben, in 2019 and second baby, Lucy, in 2022.
The Watch What Happens live with Andy Cohen host announced he would be getting older during a December 2018 episode of the OG Housewives talk show.
“After many years of careful deliberation, quite a bit of prayer and the help of science, if all goes according to plan, I will be a father in about six weeks thanks to an amazing surrogate carrying my future,” he revealed in shock Teresa Giudice, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer and Vicky Gunvalson at that moment. “Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I’ve wanted in my heart all my life and while it’s taken me longer than most to get there I can’t wait for what I imagine it to be most rewarding chapter to date.”
That New Year’s Eve, the Real housewives producer announced that his surrogate was expecting a baby boy.
“Growing up, and as we grew up… I never thought it would be possible to grow up gay and have a family,” Cohen told BFF Anderson Cooper. “And here we are in 2018, almost ’19, and anything is possible. And I am so thankful for a wonderful surrogate that I work with.
Weeks later, Ben was born.
“WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces!! 20 inches!! Born at 6:35 PM, PT,” the radio personality wrote on Feb. 4, 2019. “He is named after my grandfather Ben “Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful for an incredible surrogate. And I’m a father. Wow. ♥️🌈.”
While the Emmy winner had hinted that he wanted to expand his family as Ben got older, he didn’t announce he was expecting a daughter until Lucy arrived in late April 2022.
“HERE’S LUCY!!!!! Meet my daughter, Lucy Eve Cohen! She is 8 lbs 13 oz and was born at 5:13 pm in New York City!!! he wrote via Instagram at the time. “Her big brother can’t wait to meet her! Thank you to my rock star surrogate (ALL surrogates are rock stars by the way) and everyone who helped make this miracle happen. I’m so happy.”
