Andy Cohen Debuts His Son Benjamin

Andy Cohen Debuts His Son Benjamin

On his son's wonderful head of hair: "I was in the delivery room". Andy Cohen shared the first photo of his newborn son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, revealing a sweet face and a full head of hair. His eyes were wide open.

Cohen already shared a few peeks at the newborn on Instagram, including one in which father and son are flying on a private plane, but he kept the baby's face under wraps until the big cover reveal. "I kind of have no words for it".

To bring his desire to become a dad to life, Cohen "worked with an organization that helps you find the egg donor and the surrogate, and you kind of package the whole process".

Cohen spoke about his surrogate: "She was in California". He praised the surrogate, who lived in California because surrogacy is illegal in the state of NY. "It takes a village, as they say, so I really wanted him, and the fact that he's here and he's so ideal and he's in wonderful health and I have great gratitude for my surrogate and all the people who helped me get to this place and I'm just thrilled".

I was in my dressing room in tears. I don't understand why. My surrogate just viewed it as, she was giving me the ultimate gift. "Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I've wanted in my heart for my entire life and though it has taken me longer than most to get there, I can not wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet". "So I'll be forever indebted to her".

With about five minutes left in the third period, Malkin got tangled up with Flyers forward Michael Raffl near the benches. I know it's dirty, but I missed", Malkin said, according to Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette .

Cohen explained that he first discovered the surrogate was pregnant while he was on a lunch break during the most recent "Southern Charm" reunion special. "That was the moment for me where I was like, whoa". It is because of that sense of calm the Bravo host feels he is better suited to be a father now.

"I think I will be [a] strict [dad], but I have a sense of what to get hysterical about and what to let slide", he says.

And while "sleep is another story", Cohen explains that the long nights are nothing new to him, since he wasn't getting a ton of Zs before Benjamin's February 4 arrival via surrogate - the circumstances have just shifted. "I don't want to be a helicopter dad. I don't want to stress myself out".

We are used to seeing Andy Cohen in his role as Watch What Happens Live host or stirring the post on The Real Housewivesreunions, but recently Cohen has taken on what could be his most challenging task yet.
