Baby’s first flight!
Though new dad Andy Cohen was all smiles in a recent snap shared to social media, cradling his newborn son on a private plane, some Instagram commenters were quick to criticize the talkshow host for taking his son to travel in the high skies at just four-days-old.
“Digging the #DadGear !!!” Cohen wrote of the image he posted for his Instagram audience of three million, standing proudly with his new bundle of joy nestled in a baby carrier.
On Feb. 4, the 50-year-old Bravo host announced the birth of his first child, Benjamin Allen Cohen, who was born via surrogate in Los Angeles.
According to Yahoo Lifestyle, the dad and lad were likely en route to New York City, where Cohen resides. Nevertheless, various “dad-shamers” voiced concern for the medical risks of a long flight for such a new baby.
“He’s not too young to fly? What about his little ears popping,” one critic wondered.
“No judgments but I don’t think that’s smart.. there’s a nesting period… pls watch for germs lol,” another agreed.
“Should the baby be in the air at that age? Love you and positive outlook on life. But is that ok?” another chimed in.
“Hey Andy...should he maybe be in a carrier that has his little legs together...I know...but I’m just sayin...he’s a newborn,” another said.
“#Tooyoungtofly,” one simply quipped.
Meanwhile, fans of the "Real Housewives” executive producer had nothing but congratulatory messages to share with the new family.
“I am so happy for you! This is so sweet .. I will pray for your safe travels,” one wrote.
“Congrats Andy the best episode in your life has just begun!!” another agreed.
