“After many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers 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,” he revealed to a shocked Teresa Giudice, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer andVicki Gunvalsonat the time.“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.”
That New Year’s Eve, the Real HousewivesProducer announced that his surrogate was expecting a boy.
“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,” Cohen told BFF Anderson Cooper. “And here we are in 2018, almost ‘19, and anything’s possible. And I’m so grateful to a wonderful surrogate that I’m working with.”
Ben was born a few weeks later.
“WOW! Benjamin Allen Cohen, my son. He weighs 9 lbs 2 Ozs. He is 20 inches Born at 6:35 pm, PT,” the radio personality wrote on February 4, 2019. “He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And forever grateful to an amazing surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow. ♥️🌈.”
While the Emmy winner had hinted that he wanted to expand his family as Ben got older, he didn’t announce that he was expecting a daughter until Lucy’s arrival in late April 2022.
“HERE’S LUCY!!!!! Meet my daughter, Lucy Eve Cohen! She’s 8 pounds 13 oz and was born at 5:13 pm in New York City!!!” he wrote at the time via Instagram. “Her big brother can’t wait to meet her!
