The American-Canadian singer, Rufus Wainwright’s daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011, to Lorca Cohen. Rufus and Lorca are childhood friends. Wainwright and his partner, Jorn Weisbrodt, “deputy dad” joined the parenting partnership with her.

On the arrival of Viva, she brought much happiness and blessing in their life. However, still, they face some kind of problem regarding their daughter’s birth issue. Rufus was offended when people called Viva a surrogate child. He took to social media stating that Lorca is the baby’s mother and she was no such thing. As of now, she is healthy, beautiful and presumably good under the care of three parents.

Rufus Wainwright’s Daughter Viva Was Named After His Late Mother

Many little ones have been named after renowned star and the beloved person whom their parents’ are closed to. Even celebrities name their children after their closed ones. This is exactly what Rufus did when he picked out the name for their little girl, Viva Katherine. Wainwright’s mother, the singer Kate McGarrigle died from cancer in 2010. In tribute to her late mother, Wainwright decided to give his daughter a name after his mom.

Viva Katherine is a beautiful girl, though she mightn’t understand right now, in fact, she has a lot to live upto. Her family background is equipped with an impressive musical gene. Since she belongs to the musician parents, all the fans are likely to have expectations that she may follow her father’s footsteps. She has a bright future ahead and also been featured in the “Daughter” video song.

When Viva was conceived, Wainwright was utterly happy and proud. He has spent the years to raise Viva. Lorca Cohen who helped to conceive a baby is Leonard Cohens daughter who passed away on November 7, 2016. Wainwright had paid heartfelt condolence during his death. It felt for him as if a superhuman has gone. It looks he had a close relationship with Leonard who was the grandfather of his daughter, Viva Katherine.
