After an epic and extravagant baby shower with dozens of Real Housewives and John Mayer in Beverly Hills, California, Andy Cohen is giving a glimpse inside his east coast bash to celebrate his son on the way.

In an adorable snap the Watch What Happens Live host shared on Instagram Tuesday, the dad-to-be can be seen wedged between friends during the intimate gathering.

“I had a heart-boner for days after this crew threw me an equally epic affair on the East Coast. I feel loved & it’s all going to the 👶. Thank you @brucebozzi @kellyripa @sarahjessicaparker @jackie__greenberg,” Cohen captioned the picture, noting Anderson Cooper did a “beautiful job” making his ribbon hat.

Some of his guests even attended both parties, including Jackie Greenberg, who posted a photo of the host walking out of his first baby shower in California.

“Busted sneaking out the back congrats @bravoandy,” she wrote alongside the snapshot of Cohen surrounded by paparazzi in a blue pastel suit, with the hashtags, “#andysbabyshower,” “#babyblue,” “#itsaboy” and “#prouddadtobe.”

Sarah Jessica Parker, who was beaming in the image Cohen shared Tuesday, has openly showered the expectant dad with lots of love following his baby announcement.

“I am overcome with joy and join Andy’s friends and family as we anticipate the safe arrival of the already much-loved baby Cohen,” the Sex and the City alum, 53, previously told PEOPLE. “Andy will be a wonderful father and has been waiting forever to be called Papa.”

“I can’t wait to meet and know his child and offer any help or guidance I can offer the new daddy,” she added. “This has been a hard secret to keep and I was so thrilled to hear him share his very happy news last night. Now we are just counting the days.”

Radio personality Bruce Bozzi, who also attended both celebrations, posted an epic picture of Lisa Rinna dancing on a table with Kyle Richards in the background, as Sonja Morgan can also be seen partying it up.

On Saturday, Cohen was surrounded by Bravo’s biggest names and his close friend John Mayer at an extravagant baby shower.

The exciting bash took place at The Palm Beverly Hills, where Cohen’s BFF Bozzi serves as executive vice president. Guests sat at a long singular dinner table with gold flatware, long-stem candles and white and blue flowers as bundles of white balloons hung from the ceiling.

“I’m speechless. Every Housewife, featuring @JohnMayer,” Cohen, 50, wrote of a group shot showing all the Housewives in attendance, plus the singer-songwriter.

A wall of white flowers with a giant blue star made out of hydrangeas served as the perfect backdrop for guests to take photos. Hanging above was a large gold sign reading “A Star Is Born” — the day’s theme, which was repeated on Cohen’s three-tier gold-and-white cake.

For the menu, guests enjoyed Chinese chicken and lobster Cobb salads, salmon with mango salsa, filet mignon, chicken paillard, grilled asparagus, fried potatoes, spinach and grilled polenta cakes. Topping it all off was a trio of desserts: key lime pie, crème brûlée and chocolate-chip cookies.

Fittingly, Cohen wore a baby-blue suit.

All were by Cohen’s side on a Dec. 20 episode of WWHL in which the TV personality revealed for the first time that he is expecting his first child — a son — via surrogate.

“When he made the announcement, I could see in his face how happy and excited he is,” Richards previously told PEOPLE. “I think he’s going to be a great dad. We share so much of our lives with Andy and I was so touched when he shared this exciting news with us. I’m so happy to be able to be a part of this exciting time in his life.”

Of course, Morgan, Rinna, Richards, Gunvalson, Singer, Leakes and Giudice weren’t the only ones showering Cohen with “Mazels.”

Nearly 50 Housewives from across seven franchises came in for the event, including LeeAnne Locken (Real Housewives of Dallas), Gizelle Bryant (Real Housewives of Potomac), Dorinda Medley (RHONY), Shannon Beador (RHOC), Tamra Judge (RHOC), Erika Girardi (RHOBH), Margaret Josephs (RHONJ), Dolores Catania (RHONJ) and Jackie Goldschneider (RHONJ).

Also in attendance? Brandi Redmond (RHOD), Stephanie Hollman (RHOD), Candiace Dillard (RHOP), Ashley Darby (RHOP), Karen Huger (RHOP), Gina Kirschenheiter (RHOC), Emily Simpson (RHOC), Kameron Westcott (RHOD), Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (RHOBH), Jennifer Aydin (RHONJ), Danielle Staub (RHONJ), Phaedra Parks (RHOA), Cynthia Bailey (RHOA), Robyn Dixon (RHOP), Denise Richards (RHOBH), Eva Marcille (RHOA) and more.

Former Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos, who sings Cohen’s WWHL theme song, was also on hand, as were Jerry O’Connell and wife Rebecca Romijn, plus SiriusXM host Amy Phillips (Reality Checked with Amy Phillips).

“We kept the list to mainly Housewives to simplify things,” Richards told PEOPLE. “Most men can barely handle one wife and Andy has a lot of wives to deal with!”

Many of Cohen’s guests shared Instagram Stories capturing the activities at the baby shower, which included an artist drawing caricatures. Cohen appeared to be recording an episode of his SiriusXM show from the event, according to video footage shared by Richards.
