Andy Cohen Says It Was 'Really Upsetting' Being Apart from Son Benjamin During Second Battle with COVID-19

Andy Cohen is sharing more details about his second battle with COVID-19.

“I quarantined in the house. The first day was really drought and he was really upset and he wanted to hug me so badly,” Andy said on his SiriusXM radio show Radio Andy. “Thankfully, what wound up happening was we tried cohabitating and he was not getting the message that he could not come near me and it was serious. It was really upsetting. And he wound up going out to Long Island with his nanny.”

“We quite literally separated,” Andy added. “It was not pretty. It was not pretty.”

Later in his show, Andy said he’s “all better now” after completing his 10-day quarantine.

“I woke up this morning to a negative PCR test,” Andy explained. “So I did my 10 days, this is day 10, and I get to be reunited with Ben.”

“I’m negative, I feel so much better, and here we are,” Andy continued. “I had gotten a booster that Thursday, and so then I thought I was sick from the booster — that I was having a reaction to the booster. And then two days later I was like, ‘Wait a minute, this is quite a big reaction.’ And I got pretty sick. But I’m all better now.”

Andy first contracted COVID in March 2020 and later revealed what the “very worst part” of the battle was.
