Andy Cohen is a proud dad to his son, Ben, who regularly visits Anderson Cooper and his son Wyatt: "Anderson and I are basically just killing time between our kids' naps."


Becoming a father to his son Benjamin has been one of the greatest blessings in Andy Cohen's life. Recently, the television personality was proud to share Ben's newest milestone, saying I love you.

Although the toddler still can't pronounce each word clearly, his sweet attempts make Cohen more than happy. The doting dad was able to talk more about his son's character in a virtual interview with People.

According to the "Watch What Happens Live" star, Ben is still shy and more of an introvert than Cohen. When at home, the little one enjoys playing with toy cars and trucks and watching Netflix's "Trash Trucks."

Ben has grown close to one of his dad's friends, Anderson Cooper, and his baby, Wyatt. The father-son duo often visits the CNN journalist on weekends to bond and play with Wyatt. 


"It's great. Anderson and I are basically just killing time between naps at this point -- our kids' naps. It's great to see them," the father-of-one shared. "Wyatt is starting to be at a really fun age."

For over a decade, fans followed the famous family's lives, but it was only a few days ago that Khloé's name was correctly pronounced on-air.


Cohen and Cooper are both successful and respected in their craft as television personalities. Behind the scenes, the two are great friends and share the experience of becoming first-time fathers to their sons.

Recently, rumors about the pair's possible reality television show that would focus on their lives as first-time dads surfaced online. While fans seemed excited, Cohen set things straight and revealed that the rumors are nothing more than hearsay.

"Listen, we're on the road, we're on new Year's Eve, I feel like that's enough," the host told ET. "I mean, us getting drunk for five hours on live television together; we're gonna reveal a lot of stuff there."

Although the proud father is not sold on the idea of having a reality series about them, he believes that there are other celebrity couples worth casting for a future series, including Beyonce and Jay-Z and Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.


One of the reality television shows, "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," recently announced its last season's premiere. For over a decade, fans followed the famous family's lives, but it was only a few days ago that Khloé's name was correctly pronounced on-air.

During his interview on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Cohen revealed that the star's name is pronounced as Khlo-ay because of the accent, which Kris Jenner noted was the right way to say Khloé.
