Andy Cohen just delivered some big baby news, and his Bravo family is showing him support as he starts his family. As previously shared by the Inquisitr, during the final 2018 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Cohen announced to fans that he will welcome a baby via a surrogate in just six weeks.
The Bravo TV personality revealed that after “many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science,” he will be a first-time dad at age 50. And in true Bravo fashion, O.G. Real Housewives stars Ramona Singer, Vicki Gunvalson, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, and Teresa Giudice were all in the house as Cohen shared his happy news.
After Andy Cohen made his announcement, past and present stars from the Real Housewives franchise took to social media to wish him congratulations. Brandi Glanville, who was a cast member on Seasons 3-5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before stepping away from the show and appearing as a “guest,” joked that Cohen has plenty of practice “being a dad to a bunch of middle-aged women.”
Other Bravo stars like Lisa Rinna (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Seasons 5-9), Ramona Singer (Real Housewives of New York, Season 1-10), Cary Deuber (Real Housewives of Dallas, Seasons 1-3), and more also posted messages of support, which you can see below.

Longtime fans of Andy Cohen know that he has written about his future fatherhood in some of his books. In 2016, Cohen also talked about his desire to someday become a dad, according to People.
