Kelly Ripa can’t stop gushing over Andy Cohen’s adorable 2-month-old son, Benjamin.
Last month, the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” star met her longtime pal’s new baby for the first time and immediately fell “deeply in love.”
Now, she says seeing her friend’s son has her feeling baby fever.

Ripa told her Cohen, who was co-hosting “Live!” for the day, that she started thinking of having a fourth child after meeting Benjamin.
The mom who has three children, 21-year-old Michael, 17-year-old Lola, and 16-year-old Lola, even brought up the idea to husband Mark Consuelos.
According to People, she told Cohen on the talk show:
“I was putting it out there for [Mark] last night. He was like, ‘It’s alright. Let’s be grateful for what we have.’ And then he put on ‘Game of Thrones’ and fell asleep, which was the anti-aphrodisiac.”
Cohen said Ripa isn’t the only woman to get baby fever after meeting his son. He explained:
“He is causing women all over my life to start re-ovulating. Kelly came over, her body was responding in ways — I was like, ‘Whoa!’ … I do have to calm the ladies down a little bit.”
Ripa agreed that Benjamin triggered her motherly instincts:
“He really does make me want to have another baby. He’s confused me into thinking [I want another].”
Cohen responded, “I can tell.”
Cohen welcomed his baby boy on February 4 and said the child has given him more purpose in life, Dearly reported.
The 50-year-old television mogul explained:
“There is a comfort in knowing that he’s there waiting for me. 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 realized, ‘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.’”
The reality host explained his priorities have shifted since welcoming a little one.
And thankfully, it seems he has plenty of support from friends like Ripa to help him along the way.
