Andy says his mom didn’t think he’d be able to have kids
Andy’s journey into fatherhood started in 2019, but he didn’t always know that he’d be able to be a parent.
Speaking of coming out to his mother, Andy said at The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion part one in 2022: “I remember when I came out, my mom felt that it was a different time, she didn’t think I would ever be able to have kids and I didn’t either. She felt like she was grieving the loss of the life that she wanted for me.“
He asked if Heather Dubrow had to “recalibrate what her expectations for her children were” in regards to their coming out and Heather said: “No, straight people don’t have children either.“
How old is Andy Cohen and who is he dating now?

Judging by Andy’s social media posts, he is raising his children as a single dad. He doesn’t tag anyone else in his baby announcement posts and many of his Instagram posts have been of himself and son, Ben.
Andy spoke about his relationship status while on The Wendy Williams Show as per Bravo and said that being single was “OK“, he added: “I feel like I was a lot to handle when I wasn’t a parent. And now, meeting people, in my mind, it’s so heavy… You’re not only dating me, but you’re gonna date — you know, my son’s in the picture. So it seems like a lot.”
