Andy Cohen shared a picture of his baby in a carrier and he looks so happy
Andy Cohen is living his best new dad life – and we’re all along for this incredibly joyful ride. The talk show host shared a picture of himself with his newborn baby Benjamin in a carrier, aboard a private jet. And yes, Cohen’s gleeful smile is pretty much the equivalent of a bunch of sunshine and rainbows and more sunshine.
The new dad took to Instagram to share the picture, alongside the caption: “Digging the #DadGear !!!” Is baby Benjamin already living his very best life right now? Yup, yup he is.
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Cohen. In late December, the talk show host announced that he was expecting a baby via a surrogate and told Watch What Happens Live viewers how excited he was for this next chapter of his life.
“After many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks’ time, I am gonna become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future,” Cohen said. “Family means everything to me, and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.”
This announcement was soon followed by a baby shower including basically all of the Housewives and it was just as messy and boozy and fabulous as you’d hope it would be.
Then, earlier this week, the big moment finally happened. Cohen took to Instagram to share the first snapshot of his baby boy along with a caption that made hearts burst across the world. “I’m in love,” he wrote. “And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.”
