“Big day for my boy,” the Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen host, 50, captioned a Thursday, February 28, Instagram carousel. “#QueenOfTheMorning #KingOfLateNight #CollegeRoommate.”
In the first photo, Kelly Ripa wore a burp cloth and a big smile as she held the swaddled newborn on her lap. Jimmy Fallon gazed down at a sleeping Benjamin in the next shot, and Cohen’s college roommate Dave Ansel grinned with the little one in his arms in the following two pics.
This isn’t the first time that Benjamin has met Cohen’s friends. One day prior to hanging out with Ripa, 48, Fallon, 44, and Ansel, the Bravo personality posted a pic of Anderson Cooper with his son.
The CNN anchor, 51, bent over the infant’s crib while Benjamin looked up at him. “Uncle Anderson got an exclusive,” Cohen captioned the shot.
Bruce Bozzi also got an early look at Cohen’s baby boy, who arrived via surrogate on February 4. Two days later, the Most Talkative author shared two photos of him and his friend in the hospital.
“Here’s a #TBT 11 years in the making!” he captioned the post. “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.”
The new dad added: “PS I’M SO OUT OF IT I THOUGHT IT WAS THURS.”
Cohen announced that he had a baby on the way during a December episode of his show. “After many years of careful deliberation, a 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,” he told his viewers. “Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.”
While celebrating his “sweet” son’s 1st birthday in February 2020, Cohen posted a throwback photo via Instagram. “One year ago tonight, I sat alone in a hospital room with my newborn son pondering our future,” he captioned the touching tribute. “I didn’t know then how his smile would brighten my day, what simple joy each new progression of his growth would bring and most of all what a lovely boy he would become.”
