Messed Chance Of Dating Anderson Cooper

Cohen once had the chance to date Anderson Cooper.

Dated Clifton Dassuncao

Cohen started dating Harvard graduate Clifton Dassuncao in 2015. They met in March 2015 when Cohen was on the first night of his AC2 tour with CNN friend, Anderson Cooper, in Boston.

But their relationship only came into the spotlight after the media outlets spotted the duo thrice on Barry Diller’s $150 million yachts named Eos for two Caribbean getaways in 2016.

In the first gateway, they were seen laying on a beach. Cohen was reading novels wearing his ‘blue shades' before packing up to go back to their residence.

Finally, in 2016, the New York native affirmed his relationship with his boyfriend.

He did so by mentioning Clifton Dassuncao as “Brazilian Andy Samberg” in his 2016 memoir, Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries. Also, he revealed his partner gave him butterflies in an exclusive interview with the ETOnline.

Why Did Andy Cohen & Clifton Dussancao Split? 

For Andy and Clifton, everything worked fine for some time, but things changed. After dating for some months, Andy and his environmental epidemiologist partner parted ways, with Andy hinting on differences they could not work out.

In March 2018, Cohen revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he was single but didn't disclose why his relationship with Dussancao ended. He emphasized he didn't want a reality show drama in his love life, stating,

'I didn't sign up for a reality show.'

While Andy remained mum regarding his breakup, he revealed the crucial qualities he looked for in his ideal partner. He said,

Someone who’s very dependent, someone who has their own thing going on. Maybe someone who’s never seen The Real homemakers… I mean I could go on... So yes that’s what I’m looking for.

Had Relationship With John Mayer?

Andy's 'unlikely friendship' with American singer John Mayer led some to believe that the two had something going on between them. They visited the world together and were spotted many times together in public.

However, in the 2018 interview with CNN, Cohen confirmed they were not dating and were just soundly bonded friends who share a combined love for travel.

Has a Son

The New York native is a father to Benjamin Allen Cohen. Named after his grandfather, Cohen's son was born on February 4, 2019, through a surrogate mother from California.

Cohen had first announced his choice for surrogacy on December 20, 2018, during the late-night talk show Watch What Happens Life.

Revealing that he would be a dad in about six weeks, he asserted he wanted to experience parenthood from many years before. He also added that family meant him everything, and having one of his own was something he craved in his heart for his entire life.

" 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 thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future."

During CNN’s special new year's eve show on 31st December 2018, Cohen opened about the gender of his child for the first time. While hosting the event alongside his best friend Anderson Cooper, he stated it was a boy and he couldn't wait to meet his son.
