Andy Cohen just welcomed a baby girl into his family!
Cohen welcomed his second child, Lucy Eve Cohen, this past Friday, sharing the good news to Instagram.
“Guys, I just want to thank you all for your incredible outpouring of love for little Lucy. I’m waiting for her final little exam, and then I’m going to take her home to meet Ben,” Cohen said on his Instagram Story on Saturday. “I’ve got Ben’s hat that he wore home from the hospital for Lucy.”
Cohen, 53, announced Lucy’s arrival this past Friday with a sweet photo of him cradling his baby girl. He is also father to 3-year-old son, Benjamin Allen.
“HERE’S LUCY!!!!! Meet my daughter, Lucy Eve Cohen! She’s 8 lbs., 13 oz., and was born at 5:13 pm in New York City!!!” Cohen captioned his Instagram post.
He added, “Her big brother can’t wait to meet her! 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.”
A day later, Cohen posted a sweet photo of Ben and Lucy meeting each other for the first time.
Cohen first welcomed his first child, son Benjamin Allen, via surrogate on Feb. 4, 2019. At the time, he told PEOPLE he “didn’t want to wait” any longer to become a father, even if it meant he would be doing so as a single parent.
“It’s not something in your mind — ‘Oh, I want to do this alone.’ But I like being alone,” he explained. “I didn’t want to wait. To me it would have to be a very special person to say, ‘Let’s do this together.’ And I would love that, and that person could be having coffee down the street at this moment and I’ll meet him soon.”
Cohen added that he “always knew [he] wanted a family,” but “as a gay man, I never thought it was in the cards for me.”
