It appears Andy Cohen’s father is a true romantic.

On Wednesday, the Watch What Happens Live host took to Instagram and revealed his dad, Lou Cohen, who just celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this month, has been keeping a specific photo of his beloved wife with him where ever he goes for more than six decades. 

‘He’s carried my mom’s engagement picture in his wallet for 64 years,’ the proud son, 54, gushed in the caption of a photo, along with a red heart emoji.

For that Instagram photo, Lou Cohen proudly held up the black-and-white image of his beloved wife, Evelyn, who has her hair styled on a fashionable bob cut with a left part.

With his admission that he’s had the picture in his wallet for 64 years, that means he’s  been carrying it around since 1958; now that’s love and dedication.

Andy would arrive 10 years later in 1968, and then his younger sister, Emily Rosenfeld, who’s a mother of two who lived in their native St. Louis, followed afterwards.

Less than two weeks ago, the Bravo TV host celebrated his father’s 90th birthday by posting a series of snaps of the family, which included a recent shot of Evelyn, 84, posing alongside her beloved husband.

In the past, Cohen, who is the first openly gay host of an American late-night talk show, revealed that he came out as gay to his parents in the 1980s, and that the honesty made their already tight bond even tighter.

‘It definitely brought us closer,’ Cohen told Peoplein December 2021. ‘She’d found a letter I wrote to someone in which I expressed my fear about telling more people I was gay. She thinks I left it out on purpose so she would find it. She confronted me about it, and I told her I was gay. We both started crying, and it was very emotional.’

In fact, not long after her son came out, Evelyn Cohen decided to start volunteering for the LGBTQ community. She was driven by the need to do something about the growing AIDS health crisis of the 80s.

‘It’s an amazing testament to the kind of person she is, that her reaction to me coming out was: “I need to get involved in this community,”‘ the proud son said of his mother.
