"Get them squeezes in! When my son was young I made him promise to be my snuggle muffin until he was 16. But as he aged he negotiated it down til 12. Lol," advised one fan.

Cohen's decision to use a surrogate was revealed in December 2018. Cohen made the announcement on his late-night talk show.

“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’m going to become a father,” the Bravo personality told his viewers. “Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.”
