Andy Cohen Becomes A Dad For The First Time And Shares His First Official Photo!
Bravo producer and late night host Andy Cohen is happy to announce he’s become a father for the first time! Cohen revealed the exciting news of his son’s birth via surrogate on Instagram with a beautiful black and white photo alongside a touching caption which read: “WOW!This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !! 20 inches !! Born at 6:35pm, PT.”
The Real Housewives producer also revealed the significance behind his son’s name. “He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen,” Cohen shared. “I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.”
News first broke about the pregnancy a few months ago on the 50 year old’s show where he revealed his exciting baby news.
“I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life,” he said. “I over share and I expect everyone around me to do the same and tonight I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks’ time, I’m going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I’ve wanted in my heart for my entire life, and while it has taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be my most rewarding chapter yet.”

Before the arrival of baby Benjamin, Cohen was thrown the most epic baby shower of all time hosted by the OG housewives – Kyle Richards, Vicky Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes and Teresa Guidice. The guest list was kept to just ‘housewives’ in order to keep things ‘simple.’
“Most men can barely handle one wife and Andy has a lot of wives to deal with,” Richards joked.
The Housewives have wasted no time in taking to social media to congratulate their good friend on the safe arrival of his first son.
