As he prepares to celebrate his very first Father’s Day, Andy Cohen has shared his “new dad essentials” list on Amazon — for both baby and father. “As a first-time dad, I asked everyone for advice, and the Housewives in particular helped me prepare for this big life change,” Cohen tells SheKnows. “I’m about to celebrate my first Father’s Day and while I’m still learning every day, my confidence is growing.”
He explains that these essentials have made Cohen’s life as a new dad easier and more relaxing — both for him and for baby Benjamin, whom he welcomed in February. Most importantly, they’ve allowed Cohen to spend as much quality time with his son as possible. He sorted the must-have items into six categories: Baby Basics, Bathtime, Out & About, Nursery, Play & Learn, and Just For Dad.
