Andy has a whole lot of helpers

Even before Benjamin arrived, Andy knew his baby will be like family to his friends.

He has received plenty of valuable parenting tips from the Real Housewives stars. They also made sure to let Andy know they will surround his baby son with love and tender care! The Watch What Happens Live host said in an interview with People:

The Housewives have given me a lot of advice. All their mom instincts came out. As loud and funny and aggressive and wild and dramatic and everything you want to say about the Housewives, as much of all that as they are, they’re all moms, pretty much. And they’re all good moms.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Andy’s good friend and a mom-of-three, has been there to help as well. Andy told People:

Sarah Jessica sat with me for three hours on a Saturday and helped me do my registry. And she lent me clothes and burp cloths that she had saved from her kids. She labeled them all. She left me a big plastic container full of things that she knew I would need.
