Andy Cohen told Us Weekly that he would have no problem asking any of the Real Housewives to babysit his 18-month-old son Benjamin.

When asked which of the reality stars he would call should he need a sitter, the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host remained diplomatic.

“Frankly, I would call all of them because I think they’re all smart enough to know that if they messed up, it would not go well for them,” he told the news source while discussing his new Stella Artois partnership. “They’re all moms and they’re all good moms.”

Andy also gave the publication a glimpse into family life with his son, who he welcomed via surrogate in February 2019.

He explained that while the little one is not yet speaking, he does understand a lot.

“He understands when I say, ‘Put that away’ or ‘Let’s go.’ That’s actually really helpful,” he said, adding that his son makes it “so easy” for him. “He sleeps well, he’s good-natured. He’s a nice little boy,” Andy enthused.

The TV personality also revealed to the news source that hanging around with the toddler for months during quarantine has made him realize he is “far more patient” than he ever previously believed.

Andy added that Benjamin has not yet been able to properly meet Anderson Cooper’s son Wyatt, who was born via gestational carrier back in April, due to the coronavirus pandemic, although the two children have met virtually.

“Ben kind of saw him from out from the crib, but we’re just trying to be extra careful about it while he’s still a newborn,” Cohen told the publication. “I’ve gotten to play with him and tickle him a little bit.”

This comes after Andy took to Instagram over the weekend to share a cute snap from the beach with his toddler son, as The Inquisitr previously reported.

The proud dad wore navy swim shorts and a red bandanna around his neck as he held hands with the adorable youngster, who was clad in a swim diaper as well as a nautical-style T-shirt, and a panama hat for maximum protection from the sun. The pair clearly enjoyed the father-son bonding time as they walked along the sand. In the caption of the post, Andy noted they had spent the day exploring.
