Aww! It’s already been half a year since Andy Cohen welcomed his first child via surrogate in February, and the Watch What Happens Live host is celebrating the special milestone. In honor of baby Benjamin Cohen turning 6 months old, the proud dad took to Instagram and shared a super cute, new pic of him.
“6 months old today! ♥️🎉” the 50-year-old hunk gushed in the caption about the little guy. In the pic, Andy can be seen adorably gazing at his little one with a beaming smile while holding him up as he stands on his dad’s tummy. We can’t believe how fast he’s growing!
Fans of the Bravo guru couldn’t help but flood the comments with sweet messages for the father-son duo. “Best age. Big belly laughs and still little enough to strap them down and keep them in one place. Enjoy,” one fan wrote. “So cute. Andy looks like he’s loving being a papa,” gushed another.
Instagram users also seemingly warned Andy with what was in store for him as Ben grows older. “This is when the fun really starts …” one fan quipped. “Sitting up! Then walking! Then driving a car and off to college! Savor every minute, Andy!” insisted another. So true!
Although Andy and Ben will be celebrating his first birthday before we know it, it still seems like just yesterday when the Radio Andy host announced the birth of his child. While paying a visit to The Wendy Williams Show on July 18, the beloved TV personality opened up about what drove him to try surrogacy.
“I was approaching 50 and I was thinking … is this my destiny, I’ll just be hosting the show and being Andy in the city, or is there more for me,” the Love Connection host revealed to Wendy. “Family has always been incredibly important to me … I just thought this [having a baby] is in my future and now this is the last exit to doing this, so I did it.”
It wasn’t until Andy realized he was finally ready. “I’ve been Andy in the city for a long time,” he said, noting that wild nights out will come to an end for him as Ben continues to grow up. “I was ready to be Andy on the couch, with the kid.”
We love watching baby Ben grow up!
