Deciding what to do with unused frozen embryos is a controversial topic. But Andy Cohen has a unique idea for how he’d like to see his leftover embryos used in the future – his kids can have them.
The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host has welcomed two children via surrogate – 3-year-old Benjamin and 5-week-old Lucy. Andy appears content with his family of three. But he was recently asked if he has any embryos left and what he plans to do with them, if not have more kids.
I own several. Unsure. I’ve got three?” Jeff Lewis Live on Sirius XM.
Why Andy Wants His Embryos To Stay In The Family
Andy admits his confession is unusual. If his children do this, they’ll be raising a sibling. The Bravo host said the sentiment is sincere.
Andy continued, “This is crazy, but if they can’t have kids, maybe in 20 years they’ll defrost their sibling and raise them.” “Is that strange?”
Andy discussed his family’s adjustment to a newborn in the same interview.
By design, he spends so much time with Benjamin. Lucy doesn’t know what’s happening. I spend a few hours a day with her and tell her, “Smell me.” Listen. Me. “I’m your dad”
Andy has been open about becoming a single father later in life and the challenges he’s faced.
Last November, the talk show veteran said fatherhood is “great,” citing support and strong females as assets. “Having a kid later in life is fun because you sweat things, but I’m trying to be as relaxed as possible,” he added.
Andy supports surrogacy. He wrote a touching message to all surrogates when announcing Lucy’s birth in May. “Thank you to my rockstar surrogate (all surrogates are rockstars) and everyone who made this miracle happen. “I’m so happy,” he wrote with a baby photo.
