Cohen initially announced that he would become a father in December of 2018 while hosting a New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper.
During the appearance, the executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise noted that he would be welcoming his child with the assistance of a surrogate.
In February of the following year, he announced that his child had arrived and that he had given his kid the name Benjamin Allen as a tribute to his maternal grandfather.
The entertainment industry figure’s son has since appeared on his Instagram account several times in the recent past, as Cohen has become comfortable with showing the toddler’s face.

He also pointed out that, although the personalities from the Real Housewives series are known for their boisterous personalities, they were much more toned-down and informative when assisting him in his early days of being a father.
‘As loud and funny and aggressive and wild and dramatic and everything you want to say about the Housewives, as much of all that as they are, they’re all moms, pretty much. And they’re all good moms,’ he said.
Cohen also remarked that several other entertainment industry figures had offered to help him adjust to his change of lifestyle.
‘Sarah Jessica [Parker] sat with me for three hours on a Saturday and helped me do my registry. And she lent me clothes and burp cloths…She left me a big plastic container full of things that she knew I would need,’ he recalled.
