Late last year, he announced that he had made the decision to become a father on WWHL.

He said: "Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks time, I am going to become a father, thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future."

A flood of congratulations followed the announcement in Cohen's comment section from fans and celebs alike.

His "Real Housewives" cast members were particularly excited for him, having thrown him a blowout baby shower a few weeks ago.
