He was just welcomed into this world a little over three weeks ago on February 4, but Andy Cohen‘s son, baby Benjamin Allen Cohen, is already taking the world by storm! And, over the past few days, little Ben has gotten to meet some of the Watch What Happens Live host’s famous friends who can’t stop gushing about how adorable he is on social media.
The 50-year-old’s close pal Kelly Ripa has already gushed about baby Benjamin’s birth but it wasn’t until she met Andy’s child in-person for the first time that she truly felt overjoyed. “Deeply in love,” the Live! With Kelly and Ryan host captioned a pic of herself holding the little tot in an Instagram pic she posted on Thursday, February 28. “Thank you @bravoandy for bringing such joy to the world.” Take a look at Kelly with Ben in the adorable photo below!
Kelly, 48, wasn’t the only lucky friend of Andy’s to meet the famous baby. Jimmy Fallon also took to Instagram to share a pic of himself gazing at the 3-week-old as he slept in his arms while being swaddled. “Finally got to meet America’s royal baby — @bravoandy’s #LittleBen. I love you, Ben!” the TV personality captioned the photo.
Fans of Kelly and Jimmy were over the moon when the two stars started sharing pics with the adorable infant. “Live With Kelly and Ben in about 30 years?! He’s got the looks and the genes!” one fan jokingly suggested in the comments section of Kelly’s post. “He is absolutely beautiful Andy! Cherish every precious moment! My son will be 25, I don’t know where the time went!” said another.
Since announcing that he was expecting a child via surrogate in December 2018, Andy has been embracing the experience of new fatherhood. During a recent interview, the father-of-one opened up about what it’s been like becoming a first-time dad and how the option of surrogacy changed his life.
“I worked with an incredible surrogate. She was in California. Surrogacy is illegal in so many states, including New York. I don’t understand why. It’s a voluntary process, obviously,” Andy told People at the time his child was born. “My surrogate just viewed it as, she was giving me the ultimate gift. She gave me life. So I’ll be forever indebted to her.” We are so happy for him!
