Bravo Stars Celebrate Andy Cohen's Baby

It's been a big week for Andy Cohen: He welcomed his first child, son Benjamin Allen Cohen, via surrogate on Monday, February 4! Beaming with pride in a photo, Andy, who originally announced he was becoming a father during a special Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen special in December, expressed how thrilled he was to be a dad in an Instagram caption. "WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !! 20 inches !! Born at 6:35 pm, PT He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow," he wrote.

How to Watch

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

Ahead of baby Benjamin's birth, Andy revealed on a special episode of Radio Andy, Andy's Baby Shower that he had a very good reason for deciding to have one child instead of twins during a conversation with bestie John Mayer and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Nene Leakes.

"Andy, I'm surprised: Why did [you not] choose twins?" Nene asked.

"I thought about it a lot and I just decided I would rather get really good at having one kid and then see if I could have another one," he explained. "It seemed like a little too much for me."

Well, the WWHL host will definitely have his hands full with Benjamin — but luckily he has tons of support from his fellow Bravolebs and celeb friends.
