Well, it’s officially official! Andy Cohen is a D-A-D dad! The 50-year-old Watch What Happens Live! host welcomed his baby boy into the world yesterday evening.

In an Instagram post last night, Cohen introduced his son to the world, writing: “WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen. He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !! 20 inches !! Born at 6:35 pm, PT He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.”


Cohen first announced he was expecting a child via surrogate in December. He revealed the baby’s gender on while hosting CNN’s show with Anderson Cooper New Year’s Eve.
