On Sunday, June 21, 2020, Andy Cohen aired a special Father’s Day segment of Watch What Happens Live. His son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, was his special live guest. Anderson Cooper, who has been a good friend of Cohen’s for many years, and his son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, were his virtual guests. The boys of the famous dads met face-to-face for the first time.
Andy Cohen thought it would be fun to introduce the boys at that time. He told Wyatt that Benjamin would be his good buddy and talked about how they would travel together.
“Wyatt looks like a mini you, Anderson!” Cohen said.
EOnline! revealed that in the live episode, Andy Cohen said, “And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you’re going to be great friends.”
Andy Cohen thinks Cooper’s baby is adorable
Cooper commented that “his lower lip trembles every now and then. It’s very adorable.”
Referring to Wyatt and Cooper’s similarities, Cohen said, “He’s got those eyes. He’s got those peepers Anderson.”
Also, Cooper couldn’t resist showing off Wyatt’s tiny feet before the live video ended, just like any proud parent.
Cooper announced son’s birth on CNN in April
Anderson Cooper was very proud to announce the birth of his son at the end of April. In a CNN airing, Cooper said that he named Wyatt after his late father. Cooper was only ten when his father died. In addition, Cooper said that he hoped that he could be as good of a father as his dad was.
Cooper revealed that his son’s middle name is Morgan, coming from a family name on his mom’s side. He found the name on a list of names that his parents considered for him before he was born, so he knew they liked the name.
“He is sweet and soft and healthy and I am beyond happy,” Cooper said.
Wyatt was born via a surrogate and Cooper expressed gratefulness for the surrogate and the doctors and nurses that made it possible for his son to be born. Growing up gay, Cooper didn’t think he could have kids, so he expressed gratitude especially to the surrogate that made it possible. Seeing his friend Andy Cohen do the same thing might have encouraged him.
Cooper shared the CNN announcement on Instagram and said, “Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing – what she, and all surrogates give to families who can’t have children. My surrogate has a beautiful family of her own, a wonderfully supportive husband, and kids, and I am incredibly thankful for all the support they have given Wyatt and me.” Furthermore, he said it blessed his family to have them in their lives.
