Congratulations to Bravo star and host of Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen welcomed a baby boy on February 4. He shared an adorable photo on Instagram with this caption:
"WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !! 20 inches !! Born at 6:35 pm, PT. He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow!"
Andy, 50, only recently announced that he was going to be a father via a surrogate. While hosting the New Year’s Eve show with Anderson Cooper, he gushed about what it means for him to become a father:
"When I was growing up and when we were growing up … I just never thought it would be possible as a gay man to grow up and have a family. And then here we are in 2018, almost , and anything’s possible. And I’m so grateful to a wonderful surrogate that I’m working with. By the way, by the time it became possible, I was kind of having too much fun in my life to say, ‘I don’t think I can do this right now.’ But here I am, I turned 50 this year. It takes some people longer to get to that place. And it took me that time.”
