Thanks, Hoda!

You know this moment when you just sit and analyze all your life overnight, and sometimes, it leads to the most significant decisions? That's pretty the same what happened to Andy Cohen.

The TV host is exceptionally thankful to his good friend, Hoda Kotb, for inspiring him to become a dad at 50 years old via surrogate. 

I was also wondering, ‘Can I do this at this moment in my life?’ I’m 50, let’s be real here. And I just said, ‘I’m going to do this, I’m going to try to do this,’ and I did. It’s incredible to me as I’ve now learned that surrogacy is illegal in many states … which is why I went to California. That’s where my wonderful surrogate was, who I owe so much to.

However, Andy faced some obstacles on his way. He had major doubts about surrogate and adoption, becoming a father at such age, and having a kid as a single gay man. But all of this vanished once the host made up his mind to give it a try.

The little one is already 2 years old! She's so funny, adorable, and smart. The TV host oftentimes posts photos with her, showcasing her cuteness, and our hearts always melt!
