Why Andy Cohen's Approach to Showing Son Ben on TV Has Shifted amid Coronavirus Crisis

Andy Cohen Reveals He Has New Caregiver for Son Ben After Nanny Went to Work for Anderson Cooper

Ben may be young, having just celebrated his first birthday in February, but his dad is already making sure his music palette is rich in songs outside of the preschool sect.

"He is very familiar at this point with both the Grateful Dead and Madonna," says Cohen, who has long been open about his love for the Dead.

"He has heard more Grateful Dead than 'Baby Shark,' I will tell you that much," the Bravo star jokes.

After testing positive for COVID-19 on March 20, Cohen — who returned to hosting both WWHL and his SiriusXM radio show from his New York City home — previously opened up on Today about reuniting with Ben, from whom he had to be separated for 12 days while recovering from the virus.

The father of one gave an update on his health in his interview with Extra, revealing that a recent chest exam showed "cloudiness" in his lung, which doctors said was to be expected.

"I had a chest X-ray a few weeks ago and there was a little cloudiness in the lung. They said that's commensurate for someone who is recovering," said Cohen. "Otherwise I feel pretty good."

The TV personality also mentioned that he regained the pounds he'd dropped during his battle with coronavirus. "I lost a ton of weight and I gained it all back," he said.
