"I was in the delivery room", he told PEOPLE of the birth. "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". "And I was amazed".
Andy Cohen may not be getting a full eight hours of sleep every night now that he's a father to a newborn, but it's not fazing him in the least. "He didn't cry; he was just calm." he said. "I kind of have no words for it", Andy said.
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 was never sleeping, but I just wasn't sleeping for different reasons".
As fans know, Andy Cohen became the proud father of a lovely baby boy a bit over a week ago and now, the Watch What Happens Live host is showing off the bundle of joy to the world!
The 50-year-old Bravo host also FaceTimed with his pals at the Today show on Wednesday to talk about the exciting experience of being in the delivery room the day his son was born.
To make his dream of becoming a dad a reality Andy "worked with an organization that helps you find the egg donor and the surrogate, and you kind of package the whole process".
"It's not easy for a single guy to do this on his own", insisting, "It takes a village". "I really wanted him and the fact that he's here and he's flawless and in wonderful health". "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".
