Thanks to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, debuting your new baby’s face on the cover of a magazine for a check and/or maximum attention has truly become a lost attention whore art. But Andy Cohen is bringing it back and has posed with his dream baby for the cover of People Magazine. That loud wail you hear is Anderson Cooper crying out silver fox tears, because here he was thinking he was Andy Cohen’s dream baby forever. And yes, Andy’s 1-week-old son Benjamin Allen Cohen is giving me eyes that are saying, “Hate on my dad all you want, but you know you can’t hate on my magnificent natural bowl cut, bitch!”
Little Baby BAC already made his Instagram debut on his daddy’s page, but you only saw the back of his head, and that’s definitely because his daddy was saving his face for People. What is the point of being famous if you’re not going to use your baby’s face to get a check and/or a deal with a celebrity weekly?

Meet Benjamin Allen Cohen! ❤️ | #Regram @bravoandy: “This is my son!! I grew up reading @People cover to cover, at a time when being gay meant there was no way to have a family. Now I’m honored to be featured on the magazine’s cover. Thank you @mrjesscagle for sharing my story. Link in bio, and check out the issue on stands Friday.” | 📷: @taomeitao
Andy also talked about the entire process of making Baby BAC happen, and said that the reason why his baby was born in Los Angeles is because surrogacy is forbidden in his home state of New York.
To bring his desire to become a dad to life, Cohen “worked with an organization that helps you find the egg donor and the surrogate, and you kind of package the whole process.”
“I worked with an incredible surrogate,” he tells PEOPLE. “She was in California. Surrogacy is illegal in so many states, including New York. I don’t understand why. It’s a voluntary process, obviously. My surrogate just viewed it as, she was giving me the ultimate gift. She gave me life. So I’ll be forever indebted to her.”
Andy said that there were no complications with the baking of Baby BAC, and that he was in the delivery room when out came a pile of gorgeous black hair with his eyes. It seems like Andy doesn’t know the egg donor, but I’m still going to guess who it was based on Baby BAC’s luscious mop:
- Liza Minnelli.
- A very expensive Moe Howard wig.
- Joanne Worley after getting a Brazilian blowout.
- John Mayer after getting a Brazilian blowout.
It’s totally John Mayer. And expect to see Uncle Anderson Cooper with a completely shaved head, because he knows that even though the field of sparkling silver on his head is a thing of beauty, he can’t compete with Baby BAC’s illustrious hair game.
