Bravo TV‘s Andy Cohen is celebrating his adorable son, Ben’s first birthday and we are here for the cute-factor.

The 51-year-old host of Watch What Happen’s Live, most famous for refereeing the Real Housewives reunion shows shared a sweet image, snapped by his close mate, musician John Mayer of he and a tiny baby Benjamin Allen Cohen at the hospital to his Instagram account, alongside a heart warming tribute to his “lovely boy”.

“One year ago tonight, I sat alone in a hospital room with my newborn son pondering our future. I didn’t know then how his smile would brighten my day, what simple joy each new progression of his growth would bring, and most of all what a lovely boy he would become,” the proud dad shared.

“I am so grateful to my surrogate in California who made this all possible, and for every day of our first year… and can’t wait for the next. Happy Birthday sweet little Ben,” he added alongside the hashtag #dada.

While Andy might be tackling fatherhood as a single dad, baby Ben has no shortage of ‘aunties’. Andy’s epic baby shower included every single Real Housewife from every city as well as party-boy, John Mayer. That’s quite a gathering!

However when it comes to reality television, Andy won’t be encouraging Ben down that road.

“I can’t force him to do anything,” he recently told Us Weekly.  “I would probably advise him against it.”

Andy has clearly been smitten with fatherhood from the very start. Shortly after welcoming Ben, he spoke with TODAY about the ways it had already changed his life.

“There is a comfort in knowing that he’s there waiting for me,” the new dad said. “I went out for my first night away from him, just for dinner with friends the other night, and I was sitting there and I realised, ‘Wow! I love it that he’s there at home for me.’ It’s an anchor. It’s my family. I was like, ‘I love this feeling.'”

“I look at him the way I used to look at Instagram,” he joked. “I just sit and stare at him. I’m like, ‘Well, this is more interesting than a bunch of hot guys on my feed.'”
