In a fresh interview with PEOPLE, new dad Andy Cohen dished all about his beautiful baby boy and how his life has already changed for the better. The producer, Watch What Happens Live host and author welcomed his first child, Benjamin Allen Cohen, at the age of 50 on Feb. 4 via surrogate—and he’s nothing but glad he waited.

Cohen made sure he didn’t miss a thing, staking out a prime spot in the delivery room and even cutting the umbilical cord himself. After a quick clean up, he went skin-to-skin with his son and reveled in his new role as a papa.

Facing fatherhood at 50 doesn’t scare Cohen one bit. He tells PEOPLE that he has “a sense of calm that I didn’t have 10 [or] 20 years ago.” Perhaps fellow older dad George Clooney has some parenting wisdom he could throw his way?

Back in his home state of New York with baby in tow, Cohen is ready to get into the parenting game. With his network of support huddled around him, the Bravo TV host will surely wrangle midnight feedings and diaper changes like the pro he is.
