The Bravo star welcomed baby Lucy in April via surrogate. He is also a dad to a 3-year-old boy, Benjamin Allen.
Andy Cohen is a doting dad! The TV host best known for Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” loves being a parent. The 54-year-old recently shared a cute snap of his youngest child, daughter Lucy, who is just 3 months old. Little Lucy can be seen looking into the camera with her bright blue eyes. The infant is dressed in a bright yellow veggie-printed onesie in the adorable picture. Her proud dad simply captioned the image: I mean… Many celebrities chimed in on the comments section with Katie Couric writing: Too cute! 😍 Kyle Richards Umansky also commented, writing: The blue eyes stayed 💙 she is so beautiful Andy.
The radio and TV personality is also father to son Benjamin Allen, 3, and welcomed both his children via surrogate. When he became a father in 2019, he told PEOPLE that he “didn’t want to wait” any longer to become a dad. Cohen was looking forward to growing his family despite having to do it on his own as a single parent. “It’s not something in your mind — ‘Oh, I want to do this alone.’ But I like being alone,” he told the outlet. “I didn’t want to wait. To me, it would have to be a very special person to say, ‘Let’s do this together.’ And I would love that, and that person could be having coffee down the street at this moment and I’ll meet him soon.” He admitted he “always knew [he] wanted a family,” but “as a gay man, I never thought it was in the cards for me.”
Now the father-of-two can’t imagine a life without his beautiful children. Speaking to ET, he also confessed he loved being a girl dad. “It’s exciting! I’m already looking at her trying to think of how I want to do her hair. I have a lot of ideas that I’m workshopping.” Cohen said adding that he “already knows how to braid.” Little Benjamin also adores his baby sister but Cohen joked that “he loves her so much he wants to hit her. So I’m monitoring the situation closely.”
The radio personality is planning way ahead in terms of his grandchildren, mentioning that he’s considered donating his frozen embryos to his kids when they’re older. “I have a few. I can’t remember. I think I have three left?” he replied to a question regarding his frozen embryos on an episode of Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live, according to PEOPLE. “You know what I’m thinking — this is crazy — but if either of them cannot have kids, maybe in 20 years they’ll defrost their sibling and raise them. Is that a weird thought?” According to the in vitro fertilization (IVF) director at Shady Grove Fertility in New York City, Dr. Anate Brauer, the reproductive field “has potential to change society as we know it” and is “a young field — the oldest IVF baby, Louise Brown, will turn 44 this year,” Brauer told TODAY. “But it’s rapidly growing. Now, we’ve seen mothers carrying babies for their daughters and transgender men doing egg retrieval.” She pointed out that it’s important to look into medical, psychological and legal factors while considering different options.
