Andy Cohen and his newborn were photographed exclusively for PEOPLE in this week's issue, where the new father opens up to PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle about becoming a dad and the powerful moment he first met his baby boy, who was born February 4 via surrogate.

That being said, he took to his Instagram page to post the cover and captioned it: 'This is my son! I don't want to stress him out.

He said he is beyond smitten with baby Benjamin.

"Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen welcomed his baby boy on February 4, and while we've seen a few photos of father-and-son on social media so far, today we got our first look at the little guy's adorable face. "He's so cute", he said.

Said Cohen of his son Benjamin Allen Cohen's distinctive physical attribute: "I was in the delivery room".

Cohen might technically be a single father, but he knows "It's not easy for a single guy to do this on his own" - and he's not afraid to lean on his loved ones. "It takes a village as they say", he notes.

He added, "I really wanted him, and the fact that he's here and he's so flawless and he's in wonderful health..."

"I worked with an incredible surrogate", Andy explains.

As for his sleepless nights, Andy jokes, "I was never sleeping, but I just wasn't sleeping for different reasons. I kind of have no words for it", Andy gushed. Congratulations again on your bundle of joy!

The 50-year-old Bravo host also FaceTimed with his pals at the Today show on Wednesday to talk about the exciting experience of being in the delivery room the day his son was born.

Cohen announced that he was going to be first-time dad in December on Watch What Happens Live, revealing that parenthood was something he had always wanted.

While he's so thankful to all the fans for their support, he's most thankful to his surrogate, who lives in California. "Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I've wanted in my heart for my entire life and though it has taken me longer than most to get there, I can not wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet". I can't get over his head of hair.
