This couldn’t be any cuter! Andy Cohen had a sweet bonding moment with his 1-year-old son Benjamin over the weekend where the two of them channeled Star Wars in the most adorable of ways.
They had a blast playing around with their light sabers where Andy & Benjamin dressed up in super colorful outfits for the memorable moment. “The Force is strong in this one…,” he captioned the photo which was a very obvious reference to the iconic film franchise.
Fans and celebs like Naomi Campbell and Tabatha Coffey swarmed his comments section with nothing but love for the father/son duo. Some even took note of how muscular Andy’s legs looked as he sported just a pair of short shorts with a long-sleeved tie dye shirt.
The Watch What Happens Live host announced that he was going to become a father during an episode of his show in December 2018. That became a reality for him two months later when his surrogate gave birth to Benjamin on February 4, 2019. He has since posted a ton of photos and videos of them together where they are usually dressed up in quite the precious attire.

I’ve put off sharing this news as long as I could. As you may know, Wacha is my first baby, my beautiful rescue puppy. He is my pride and joy. When he came into my life, my world changed. Over the nearly seven years that I’ve been blessed to have Wacha in my life, we have worked to address some occasional random signs of aggression. No effort was spared in the attempt to help Wacha feel adjusted. After an incident a few months ago, numerous professionals led me to the conclusion that my home is simply not a good place for him. Keeping him here could be catastrophic for Ben and worse for Wacha. The good news is that he now has a permanent home with his second family, in the place he lived every single time I went out of town. He is thriving. We still see each other, but a piece of my heart is gone. I miss his weight on top of me first thing in the morning. I miss him waiting for me in front of the shower. And I miss the sound of his paws on the floor when I come home. I am not the same person I was when I got him. My dog changed me. He opened me up to love.. to caring… and ultimately to having a family. When I think of him – let’s be honest, when don’t I think of him – it’s with the clarity that we were meant to come into each other’s lives exactly when we did, and that he’s happy, which gives me peace of mind. We did rescue each other. Thank you, Wacha.
It hasn’t all been fun and giggles for Andy since becoming a dad. The 52-year-old announced in late May that he had to rehome his beloved dog Wacha, who was a constant staple on WWHL over the years, after an incident that happened earlier in the year.
“He is thriving,” Andy wrote on how Wacha is doing today. “We still see each other, but a piece of my heart is gone.”
He continued with, “My dog changed me. He opened me up to love.. to caring… and ultimately to having a family. When I think of him – let’s be honest, when don’t I think of him – it’s with the clarity that we were meant to come into each other’s lives exactly when we did, and that he’s happy, which gives me peace of mind.
