Andy Cohen tugs at hearts as he reflects on the cute cameos his 1-year-old son Benjamin Allen Cohen has had on his show, "Watch What Happens Live" amid filming at home.


2020 hasn't been the best year so far with the ongoing pandemic, several deaths of celebrities, and the racial injustice that plagued the United States. However, renowned host Andy Cohen is on a mission to put a smile on everyone's face in the best way he can.

On Wednesday night's episode of his renowned show, "Watch What Happens Live" Cohen concluded with the anticipated virtual Golden Robes Award, celebrating the ups and downs of the show amid filming from home.

While the 52-year-old talked about the most shocking @home moment and the worst WiFi connection category, the highlight of the hilarious award show was "The Benjamin Allen Cohen Award for Toddler Cuteness @ Home."

After introducing the category, Cohen went on to list the contenders for the coveted award, displaying the top three moments of Ben's cameos that were the highlight of the home filming.


The first nomination was when baby Ben met his father's pal, Anderson Cooper's son, Wyatt, to commemorate Father's Day. The doting fathers introduced their boys with Cohen saying:

"Look, that's going to be your good buddy Wyatt. Have you boys ever been to Brazil?"


The colleagues poked fun at each other during the episode, which was held in June, with Cohen noting that Wyatt looked like a mini-cooper. They also discussed plan to vacation together once the pandemic is over.

The last nomination went to the heartwarming moment when the toddler showed host Stephen Colbert his head.



The next worthy moment was when Ben met Amy Schumer's son, Gene, in April. Both parents carried their boys on their legs and held their hands to wave to each other enthusiastically.

In the episode, both Amy and Cohen discussed how their sons' playdates together have been interrupted by the ongoing pandemic. After playing a fun game of 'One, Two, Baby," the duo brought out Ben and Gene as they promised to resume their fun playdates after the pandemic.




The last nomination went to the heartwarming moment when the toddler showed host Stephen Colbert his head. After the radio host brought out his son to meet Colbert, the toddler seemed distracted until his father asked him to touch his head.

Brilliantly, Ben placed his hand on his head with a beaming smile, before Colbert urged Cohen to get the cutie into show business. After displaying the contenders, Cohen confirmed that all three nominations tied, with each touching moment taking the win home.


Although the "Vanderpump Rules" host disclosed that little Ben couldn't join us to receive the protest due to a "last-minute diaper malfunction," he delighted fans with a pre-recorded moment of Ben's acceptance.

Little Ben was seen cheering himself and clapping with a huge smile on his face as his father held him on his laps. Cohen heartily congratulated the 1-year-old for winning a Golden Robe Award before smothering him with sweet kisses.
