And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.” The TV host had announced that he is going to be a father in December 2018.

Andy Cohen further revealed that he and his pup Wacha were preparing to bring the baby home. The radio host added that he has got all the gear and getting more and everyone around him is giving him wonderful advise and added that he has a lot of great women in his life.
