Happy Birthday, Andy Cohen! The Watch What Happens Live host and producer turns 52-years-old today. Born on June 2, 1968, in St. Louis, Missouri, Cohen graduated from Boston University with a broadcast journalism degree. He intervened at CBS News and worked as a producer for The Early Show before becoming Bravo’s Vice President of Original Programming in 2004. The move was a great one for Cohen as he has successfully led the network to ratings’ success and has produced some of its most popular programs, including the Real Housewives franchise, The Millionaire Matchmaker, Top Design, Project Runway (2005-2008), and more.
Cohen is also a successfully published author having written the books “The Andy Cohen Diaries”, ” Most Talkative”, “Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries”, “The Real Housewives Get Personal”, and more.
He has the radio channel on SiriusXM, called Radio Andy, and has a live show with his close friend and Gemini brother Anderson Cooper (Anderson celebrates his 53rd birthday tomorrow) called AC2 Live: Andy and Anderson on the Road where they go on a live tour.
Though both Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen are openly gay, they aren’t a couple — despite the many hopeful wishes of their fans. Andy is also the first openly gay host of a late-night talk show and lives his life out loud which in turn helps those who are fighting for LGBTQ rights and equality.
Both Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen have sons born via surrogate. Andy Cohen’s son is Benjamin Allen who just celebrated his first birthday on Feb. 4, 2020.
When Anderson Cooper decided to become a father, he found support and guidance in his good friend Andy Cohen who had already been through the experience.
At this point, it’s unclear what plans Andy Cohen has for celebrating his birthday. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the recent riots and civil unrest across the country, the state is in a time many have never witnessed before. Social gatherings are limited and the ability to go out and celebrate with a big party is prohibited due to social distancing rules.
Andy hasn’t posted anything about his birthday with his 3.9 million Instagram followers yet, though he did share an interesting throwback photo of himself recently.
Happy Birthday, Andy Cohen!
