Do Kelly and Mark want more kids?

Never say never! The arrival of Andy Cohen's adorable son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, had Kelly feeling a little broody.

Kelly joked she was "putting it out there for [Mark]," but he wasn't into the idea. "[He] was like, 'It's all right, let's be grateful for what we have,'" she recalled. "And then he put on Game of Thrones and fell asleep, which was the anti-aphrodisiac."
