Talk show host Andy Cohen welcomed his first child via surrogate on February 4, and if that doesn’t deserve a “Bravo,” we don’t know what does. The 50-year-old new dad has been absolutely thrilled with his new addition, but according to Radar Online, his newborn son, Benjamin Allen, has also made him quite the “nervous wreck.”
“Andy hasn’t slept a wink, because he said he doesn’t want to miss anything,” an insider told the outlet. “He has his mother Evelyn with him, and his sister Emily as well.” The Real Housewives mogul is reportedly leaning on his closest loved ones for emotional support — every new parent needs it. Plus, his mom and sis are helping him with feedings and diaper duty.
Though he has his safety net of support from his family, fans and followers are wondering if Andy will eventually find a new partner to share his new journey with. But according to the insider, the Bravo host is over dating after splitting from his longtime beau, Clifton Dassuncao, in March 2018.

Here’s a #TBT 11 years in the making! First is November 2007 w/ best friend @brucebozzi on the day of my goddaughter, Ava’s, birth. Swipe to Monday, the day Bruce’s godson, Benjamin, was born. What a journey through life friendship takes us, and how lucky am I…. ❤️ #fatherhood #gaydads #UncleBruce #UncleAndy PS I’M SO OUT OF IT I THOUGHT IT WAS THURS 😂👶👋
“He told one of his friends that he will never need a man again because he now has the love of his life,” the insider revealed about Andy’s feelings toward his son. So cute.
Despite the stresses of parenting a newborn, the Watch What Happens Live host is said to be happier than ever. “When he first held his son, he broke down crying hysterically and still can’t believe that this came true,” the source revealed. Um, sorry, we’ll just be over here bawling. BRB.
Andy announced his new arrival as he closed out an episode of Watch What Happens Live on December 20. “I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks time, I’m going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future,” he told the world during the episode.
