Andy Cohen Celebrates Son Ben’s 1st Birthday With A Touching Instagram Post!

Andy Cohen took to Instagram to honor and celebrate his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, on his 1st birthday with a touching post on the social media platform. "One year ago tonight, I sat alone in a hospital room with my newborn son pondering our future," he wrote.

"I didn’t know then how his smile would brighten my day, what simple joy each new progression of his growth would bring, and most of all what a lovely boy he would become," he continued. "I am so grateful to my surrogate in California who made this all possible, and for every day of our first year... and can’t wait for the next," he added. "Happy Birthday sweet little Ben."

Cohen welcomed baby Ben via surrogate on Monday, February 4 at 6:35 p.m. Baby Cohen weighs 9 lbs., 2 ounces, and measures 20 inches long.

Andy shared the news by sharing a black and white photo of him holding his son. The Real Housewives executive producer revealed that the name was in honor of his grandfather Ben Allen.

“WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !!, 20 inches !! Born at 6:35 pm, PT” Cohen wrote on Instagram at that time. “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. ♥️🌈”

Cohen first announced that he was expecting his first child via surrogate on December 20, 2018, episode of WWHL, while surrounded by OG Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards and Teresa Giudice.

“Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a 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,” he shared.

A few days later, during CNN’s live New Year’s Eve show, Cohen revealed that he would be having a son. “It’s a boy and I got to tell you something, I cannot wait to meet this boy.”
