Another important man in baby Benjamin’s life? “Uncle” Anderson Cooper, who dropped by Cohen’s home for an “exclusive” one-on-one with the adorable infant in late February.
In the cute snapshot, the CNN anchor peered over the railing of Benjamin’s crib. The two were locked in an intense gaze as Benjamin, wrapped snugly in his blue swaddle, lay in a cushioned baby lounger.
“Uncle Anderson got an exclusive … ” wrote the proud father.
“Went to meet @bravoandy‘s Benny and he is everything! Look at his proud Papa 👨👦and look at all that hair!” Padma Lakshmi raved on Instagram, posting a series of images of herself holding Benjamin and one of the little boy peering over his dad’s shoulder.
“Benny can you say ‘Auntie Padma … ‘💁🏻♂️” she joked.
“Guess what? Kyle Richards was the very first Real Housewife to meet my son today!” Cohen said on the March 12 episode of WWHL before the broadcast cut to a too-cute snapshot of Richards cradling Benjamin — who looked up at the reality star with a wide-eyed, curious expression.
“I put him in Gucci just for you!” joked the proud new father.
“I’m so in love with him I can’t even take it,” said Richards. “It’s literally like holding Andy without the suit on. … Like a little Andy.”
Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos got his own dose of bonding time with Benjamin in early April, when the Riverdale star met the father-son duo for brunch.
