"Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen welcomed his baby boy on February 4, and while we’ve seen a few photos of father-and-son on social media so far, today we got our first look at the little guy’s adorable face.
This is my son!! I grew up reading @People cover to cover, at a time when being gay meant there was no way to have a family. Now I’m honored to be featured on the magazine’s cover. Thank you @mrjesscagle for sharing my story. Link in bio, and check out the issue on stands Friday

The Bravolebrity and Benny cover the new issue of PEOPLE magazine together, with Cohen sharing how much the honor means to him on his own social media.
"This is my son!! I grew up reading @People cover to cover, at a time when being gay meant there was no way to have a family," he wrote on Instagram. "Now I’m honored to be featured on the magazine’s cover. Thank you @mrjesscagle for sharing my story,"
Andy also FaceTimed into "TODAY" on Wednesday morning, where he opened up a little more about fatherhood as some incredibly cute video from his PEOPLE shoot was aired.
"I just sit and stare at him. I can’t get over his head of hair. He’s adorable, you guys, he’s so cute," he said of his son.
Cohen explained that he was in the delivery room with the surrogate when Benjamin made his big arrival. "They cleaned him up little bit, I took my shirt off, and they put him right there, and he was so alert," Andy said. "He wasn’t crying. His eyes were open, and we just stared at each other for about two hours, just looking at each other, and he was touching my face … it was just incredible, and I was hoping he was going to have a little hair on his head, and the kid’s already over delivering."
Seriously though, look at those locks!
"It’s not that easy for a single guy to do this on his own," he said of being a dad. "It takes a village, as they say, so I really wanted him, and the fact that he’s here and he’s so perfect 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. It’s truly a dream. There’s a lot of sweetness and hugs and snuggles happening in the West Village right now."
Andy also joked that while he’s not sleeping that much right now, he was "never sleeping" in the first place … "for different reasons."
Cohen’s cover story hits newsstands Friday.
