Andy Cohen Jokes That His 4-Year-Old Son ‘Has Excellent Gaydar’

Andy Cohen’s son Ben may only be 4 years old, but he’s already exhibiting “excellent gaydar,” according to the Watch What Happens Live host.

During a conversation at New York City’s 92NY event (per People) with longtime friend Anderson Cooper about his new book, The Daddy Diaries: The Year I Grew Up, Cohen explained that while he may be the only gay and single parent at his son’s nursery school, Ben still seems to understand that his dad is gay.

The Bravo personality expressed gratitude for his friendship with Cooper because, through it, his son sees other gay men in relationships, which has normalized the concept of men being romantically involved for the little boy. “Ben sees Wyatt with two dads, and Ben’s other friend, Adrian, has two dads,” Cohen said, adding, “[He’s] been saying lately, ‘I want another daddy, I want another daddy.'” The dad of two gushed, “It’s so cool to me that he knows that it would be a daddy,” joking, “My son has excellent gaydar, what can I say?”
