Surprising news to share tonight as Bravo host Andy Cohen is going to be a father!
During the December 20th live broadcast of his talk show, Watch What Happens Live, Andy, 50, made the stunning announcement.
“Tonight I want to share a little personal news of my own,” he began. “To the viewers at home, I call you my friends at home because we are friends. You have supported me through almost ten years of live tomfoolery night after night.”
Andy then dropped the bombshell news as he hosted the WWHL O Come OG Faithful event which featured some of Bravo’s original housewives such as Vicki Gunvalson, NeNe Leakes, Ramona Singer, Kyle Richards, and Teresa Giudice.
“I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life. I overshare and I expect everyone around me to do the same,” shared Andy. “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.”
According to Andy, he is expecting via a surrogate.
“Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future,” continued Andy. “Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life. And though it’s taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet so happy holidays and happy new years to all of you.”
Andy was congratulated by all of the present OG Housewives during the broadcast. You can see their exciting reaction below.
During a recent appearance on Jeff Lewis Live on Tuesday, hosted by Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis, the openly gay host made no mention of a boyfriend and hinted that he was not in a serious relationship so it appears he is planning to be a single dad.
He also shared that new episodes of his hit show, WWHL, will return in January.
