Ben Cohen Has Started Saying "Dada" But He Doesn't Associate It With Andy Cohen

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Andy Cohen recently called into The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon via video chat, and revealed that his one-year-old son, Ben, has started to talk. During the episode, Jimmy asked if Ben was saying any words yet, to which Andy responded, “Yes, as a matter of fact. Because I crammed your book, Dada down his throat, and the flashcards, all he ever says is ‘Dadadada.’”

After doing everything in his power to make sure the first word his daughters said would be “dada,” Jimmy Fallon wrote a children’s book called Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada. It sounds like the book was successful for Andy and his son, there is one tiny catch: Ben doesn’t seem to associate the word “dada” with his dad just yet. 

“There is a glitch in the system, my man,” Andy told Jimmy. “He doesn’t associate it with me! He says the sounds but it’s not…”

“That’s not part of the deal!” Jimmy explained. “The only thing I promised is that the baby would say ‘dada.’ I didn’t say he would necessarily know it was you.’” 

However, the two television hosts seemed to come up with a solution. “You need a Dada sequel,” said Andy. “How to join dada to dad.” 

Jimmy suggested that the next book could include a little space for fathers to add a photo of themselves, so that their children will realize that “dada” does in fact mean dad. Andy, on the other hand, thought the idea came just a little bit too late.
