People Magazine isn’t just choosing the Sexiest Man Alive in 2019, it has also chosen the Cutest Baby Alive in 2019. That’s right, some of the offspring of our favorite celebrities went head to head this year comparing dimples, best coo, and most Instagram-worthy monthly photos.
And this year’s winner just happens to be… Benjamin Allen Cohen, son of Bravo’s Andy Cohen.
Ben was born via a surrogate on February 4. He is Cohen’s first child, and even though he’s just nine months, Ben has lived a life, unlike most 9-month-olds. So far, he’s met
Carrie Bradshaw, er Sarah Jessica Parker, and he’s become close buds with newsman Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, and multiple Real Housewives.
In other words, Ben has had a more exciting first 9 months of life than the majority of people in this world, but he’s the Cutest Baby Alive, so you can’t really hate him for it. Although, you can be jealous of him for it, which most people probably are.
After learning his son was crowned 2019’s Cutest Baby Alive, Cohen was thrilled. He took to Instagram to share the big news.
He captioned the snapshot of Ben’s spread in the magazine, “Ok, People – if you say so!” It’s unclear who exactly Ben was up against for this honor, but it can only be assumed that this decision wasn’t an easy one to make.
Between Shay Mitchell‘s daughter, Prince Harry‘s son, Kim Kardashian‘s baby boy, and Amy Schumer‘s little man, how is it even possible to pick just one cutest baby alive? Somehow, People managed to do it.
I mean, Ben has already scored his first girlfriend in the daughter of Million Dollar Listing star Ryan Serhant, so it’s not that surprising. Cohen told the magazine that “fatherhood is a new adventure every day, and watching Ben grow has been a total joy and eye-opening joy ride.”
And it’s pretty obvious based on his social media that he thoroughly loves being a father. Between the made-up songs:
The sweet cuddles:
The hilarious snapshots:
And the adorable selfies:
Cohen is nailing it at being the father of the Cutest Baby Alive.
However, while fatherhood has been a joyous time for him, Cohen also admitted it can sometimes feel like he’s in over his head. “It can feel overwhelming. But when he looks back at me and smiles or laughs at something I say, everything feels right.”
Nonetheless, when you have a baby this cute, it’s hard to complain, amiright?
