How do you plan for the future Andy CohenHe revealed that he had thought about letting his children use his embryos to create their own families.
“I have a few. I can’t remember. I think I have three left?” Cohen, 54, said during an episode of Sirius XM’s “Jeff Lewis Live” on Monday, June 6. 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?”
Bravo host Benjamin, 3, and Lucy, 5, were welcomed by different surrogates. The Bravo host also talked about the new dynamic within his household.
“The crazy thing is, by design, I am spending so much time with [Benjamin],” he explained. “Because, by the way, [Lucy] doesn’t know what’s happening. I sit with her for a few hours a day and I’m like ‘Just smell me. Hear my voice. This is me. I’m your dad.’ But [with Ben], I’m really in there with him and I don’t know if it’s really registering how much time I’m spending with him.”
Earlier this year, Cohen surprised his followers with the news of his daughter’s arrival. “Meet my daughter, Lucy Eve Cohen! She’s 8 pounds 13 oz and was born at 5:13 pm in New York City!!! Her big brother can’t wait to meet her!” the Andy Cohen Live on Camera: Watch What HappensIn April, host wrote via Instagram. “Thank you to my rock star surrogate (ALL surrogates are rockstars, by the way) and everyone who helped make this miracle happen. I’m so happy.”
The Missouri native, who was first a father in February 2019, later talked about his new baby girl. “As I held Lucy in the hospital, just she and I, late into her first night, I was so moved by all of your love and support,” Cohen said during an episode of WWHLThat was the same month. “I want you to know that your virtual cheerleading of my starting a family on my own has lifted me up when I most needed it.”
At the time, Cohen also offered a shout-out to his “incredible” surrogate who visited the late-night talk show days before the delivery. “I thought we were going to have a real clubhouse baby right here!” he joked, while referring to his surrogate as “a partner and friend.”
The producer has spoken out about his desire to be a father before. “Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I’ve wanted in my heart for my entire life and though it has taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet,” the Most talkativeAuthor told his WWHLDecember 2018, viewers
