sudden clinginess?

My eight month old who used to go to anyone, suddenly only wants to be held by me. He cries when anyone else holds him, even my husband. People keep telling me this is a phase. Just wondering if anyone elses babies went through this, how long it lasted, and if there is anything we can do to make him feel better.
No bashing please.
