Andy Cohen’s 2019 turned upside down when he welcomed his first child, a son named Benjamin Allen, via surrogate in February. Is his newborn baby boy a one and done type of deal in the parenting department for the 50-year-old, or does he want to expand and give Ben a baby brother or sister someday?
Turns out having a second child is something that is on the Watch What Happens Live host’s mind a lot. “I think about it all the time,” he told US Weekly exclusively on Monday, April 22, at the White Crow screening hosted by The Cinema Society and Monkey 47 Gin. “I know. Tick tock.”
For now, everything appears to be peachy keen for the father and son duo. “He’s delightful,” Andy gushed. “He’s very cute. Everyone says savor every day and I’m just trying to do that.”
“(Fatherhood is) great,” he added. “You know every day is a new little moment of love that you didn’t know existed the day before.”
Andy’s friends, like Sarah Jessica Parker, have spoken highly about what a great job he’s doing so far as a father. “He’s a wonderful dad,” the Sex and the City alum exclaimed. “He’s a better dad than I even think I thought he could ever be. … It’s real and he’s living up to all of our best expectations.”
SJP will be presenting Andy with the Vito Russo Award at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Sunday, May 4. It’s a special honor presented annually by GLAAD in honor of one of its founding members. The award is given to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community.
Past recipients include Cynthia Nixon, Billy Porter and most recently Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley.
