Andy Cohen's 2½-year-old surprisingly hasn't requested his Halloween candy haul in the days since trick-or-treating.

On Sunday, the Watch What Happens Live host, 53, shared a pair of photos of himself and son Benjamin Allen as they stepped out in New York City for Halloween. The pair smiled in matching astronaut spacesuits for the holiday, holding hands and posing in front of Halloween decorations.

"We went to SPACE tonight!!!! Also, he LOVES lollipops! #Halloween," the proud dad captioned the Instagram post.

"Now there's an endgame," he said, noting that he has more than just himself to consider when choosing a potential partner. "Are you going to be a good stepfather? It's changed everything."

So what does Cohen look for in a relationship? "I like very independent people who have their own things going with their own lives, who are very strong in their belief systems," he explained. "That's very attractive to me."
